Getting Sandy for The Playlist

This weekend has been one of the warmest so far for Spring...and we made the most of it by getting outdoors as much as we could. As always the kids gravitated to the sandpit...Sand will keep my children occupied for hours!
And why wouldn't it...there are so many possible games and adventures to be had in the sand. Sometimes they will be building castles, and sometimes tunnels and tracks for their cars...

...but when the weather is warm, like it was today...a little water is added and the sandpit becomes their very own beach!

This post was inspired by 1000 Homes of Happiness who have set up the Playlist, after this recent news article stated that kids need to get barefoot, wet and dirty to become smarter, wiser and more resilient adults. I love this idea, and if you would like to get involved in The Playlist, head over here.

Hope you have enjoyed the great outdoors this weekend!

Popping over from the PlayList linky :) Beautiful photos. So great to see all of our little people out playing in the sand.

What a lovely sand pit your kids have! I love the idea of making it into a beach. It's still too cold over here! I have a Dora fan here too.
