Children have always been intrigued by sand play. I have yet to meet one who doesn’t enjoy playing with sand.
When Little Edison was younger, he loves the tactile experience of sand. He likes the feeling of sand between his fingers and toes. He is amazed to see how sand can be dug into a hole, mounded up into a pile or poured out from a bucket.
When he is older now, the sand becomes a stage of imaginative play. He makes sand castles in different sizes and shapes. He decorates them with dried leaves, twigs, shells, small pebbles and whatever he can find on the beach.
I believe every young child has a natural love for sand play. It allows them to explore their creativity and imaginations.
We’re blessed to live in a country with beautiful and clean beaches. Over the weekend, we went to Tanjong Beach in Sentosa. I would say that among the three beaches in Sentosa, Tanjong Beach is the quietest and most ideal for families with young children to enjoy a range of beach activities including sand play.
The beach is quiet and calm. It emits a feeling of tranquility and peace as I lie down and enjoy the sea breezes. What a fantastic day!
