Before we headed to the beach I naively made the suggestion that we needed a bucket and spade to enjoy a bit of play on the beach. Luckily we did not make this purchase! It did not take long for me to realise that all the my daughter needed to enjoy play was provide for her naturally. First there was the simply joy of walking on the sand, getting mummy to do some paddling and covering feet with sand, then pebbles and feathers were discovered and soon sculptures were being created. We parents joined in too, it was such a lovely way of simply being together. I loved the opportunity for a bit of play and creativity: having a go at my own simple sculpture, enjoying the texture and movement of the sand and seeing how I could manipulate it- just as little one was!
