****THIS IS GOOD IF YOU DON'T HAVE ROOM IN YOUR YARD FOR A SAND PILE. (WE HAVE A SAND PILE UNDER THE KIDS' SWINGSET) I USED TO WORK AT A DAYCARE AND THIS WAS ONE OF THE KIDS' FAVORITE ACTIVITIES. YOU CAN ALWAYS CHANGE IT OUT TO DIFFERENT THINGS. YOU CAN EVEN ADD SOAP TO THE WATER AND LET THEM "DO DISHES" OR WASH THEIR OWN TOYS. ;)

Water, Sand, and Other Stuff Too

Give your child opportunities to play with tools and materials for measuring, scooping, sifting, shoveling, and pouring. Place a big plastic storage box on an old plastic shower curtain or tablecloth. Fill it with one type of thing: dried beans, birdseed, rice, water, sand, etc. Add a few tools and toys: plastic animals, cars, rocks, shells, ladles, cups, funnels, pails, pitchers, spoons, etc. Watch him play for hours!

That's a great idea! I always wanted to try that with my kids when they were little, but never went about it...but we did have a sand box, so I guess, that must be why. :)

Thank-you Misty!:smball:
