Sand Tracks

ages 2-4

Activity Detail

This activity works best at the beach or a large sand area at a local playground. With your foot, trace tracks in the sand in large spirals, waves, swirls, any design you like. Criss-crossing tracks work well; the more intricate the better. Then let your child run along the tracks like a little locomotive. My boys used to love tracing and retracing these "maps" in the sand.

This idea is nice because it does not require any special equipment--just a beach and some kids with lots of energy! I wasn't sure what was meant by "running like a locomotive (train)," though.
