  • 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
