Ideas for playing with sand foam


There are so many ways kids can play with the sand foam. They will no doubt have lots of ideas of their own, but some other ideas include:
 
  • Dinosaur play – just add in some small plastic dinosaurs, pebbles and maybe some leaves or plants to create a dinosaur forest.
 
  • Sand dunes – kids can drive their cars through the sand to create lots of tracks and pretend they’re driving through sand dunes.
 
  • Creating a mini beach – use small pebbles, shells and seaweed to create your own miniature beach
