Sand Storm

 My son has been really in love with outer space for a while now.  His favorite planet is Saturn and he is fascinated by the sand storms on Mars.  Just before bed we were exploring sand on the light panel – drawing with our fingers, making tracks with airplanes, etc.  I gave him the “five more minutes and its time for books and bed”, and then he sucked me into some fun that lasted way more than 5 minutes (its a good thing he really has no concept of time – LOL).  He went into the closet, brought out a straw, and started blowing the sand.  “Its a sand storm, Mommy!!” 
blown sand art – great for oral motor development
“I made two planets, Mommy.”

“That round one looks like a crater!  That’s cool!”
Apparently it was bright in the room….sunglasses?  LOL
This activity was F-U-N!!

    What a great blog! Thanks for your fun ideas. I am a mom of 3, plus a preschool teacher at a Reggio inspired school and can tell you that I will be borrowing a lot of your ideas.
