A child's play garden

Our sand and water table has been out for about a month now. We've been using it almost everyday. Even I enjoy getting my hands in the sand and building something. While I was weeding the other day, the little guy was inspired to use the sand table in another way. He decided to make his very own garden. He went around picking flowers and adding them to his garden.

Then, he added water.

After I was done weeding and trimming, he added some of the branches to his garden. He played at this game for quite a while. What other ways do you use your sand box?

  1. I love your water/sand table. Ours is so small compared to yours. We use our sandbox/water table for everything. We put goop, mud, noodles, rice, oatmeal, jello, shaving cream etc in it

    p.s. my google account won't let me post as me. no idea what's going on with that??

  2. I love the jello idea, I have never thought of that!

    Also, my google account isn't letting me post comments either! It's been going on for days. It just keeps taking me to the log in page. I hope they will be fixing it in the near future!

  3. What a cute idea! We have separate water and sand tables and they double up as so many different things!! IT's Awesome to get creative with normal everyday things!!

  4. You just can't go wrong with sand and water can you? Fun!

  5. Sand and water - perfect combination to encourage sensory, creative and imaginative play. I love your photos :) Thanks for coming to share on the It's Playtime Link up and I look forward to more of your play ideas.
