Sandy play

24 Feb

We had half a bag of sand in the garage. Sitting there for over six months. We’ll hardly bring it with us when we move, so it was time to think of something to do with it. Besides play with it, in the normal way. That’s booooring! So I thought “Food colouring!” Coloured sand. Brilliant. I gathered some tupperware (or whatever it’s called), cups, jars and the food colouring. And our sand adventure began. Put some sand in a container, add some food colouring and give it a shake. And what do you get? Coloured sand. Brilliant!

And coloured sand castles. The poor neglected sand table was brought back to life today, after months of being ignored. We won’t mention the blue hands that just won’t go away. Surely food colouring isn’t permanent, is it?
