Circles in the Sand

ages 3-5


Supplies

Large, shallow pan; sand; sticks, rocks, leaves, other items from the yard

Activity Detail

Looking for something new and different to encourage learning while playing outside with your child? Create your own "learning board" out of sand. If you do not have a sandbox, purchase some sand and place it in a large, flat container like a baking pan. Help your child collect small items from around the yard. Use each item to press into or drag across the sand. Talk about the kind of impression or design each item makes. Older children can practice drawing ABCs or numbers using their fingers or small sticks. Wet sand can also be used for longer-lasting impressions.
