When she has sand on the beach, she forgets the whole world around. Everyday I have a deal with her. If she wants the bag of spades and cups (Of course they are plastic and gifted, will replace soon as she finished with them ), she will have to do something for me. Doing what ?
Oh, she will collect me 5 plastics on the beach and put them in the bin. More plastic stuff she collects, more toys she gets.
Leandra loves making sand castles, but in an advanced way, she is so careful about the wetness and colors of the sand when she picks them up.
That’s why I call her “Sand Scientist”
