A rainy day in the middle of summer is a blessing and a curse. The trees love it, but my 2 year old cutie is not so happy about it! So today I’m sharing a teacher-mama activity that I found on pinterest thanks to Growing a Jeweled Rose. We brought one of my son’s favorite outdoor activities inside–sand! Thanks to the recipe I found on Growing a Jeweled Rose, we turned our normal sand from the sandbox into amazing sand-art! We pulled out the play dough tools and other molds to make some awesome sand sculptures. My son’s favorite part was knocking it all down of course!
The texture was interesting . . .
Sticky Sand Recipe:
5 cups sand
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup vegetable oil
This is great for toddler sensory and discovery. I wonder if we can find a use for it in the classroom too? Any ideas?
