Image Description
Time:
20 mins
Place:
Inside
Need:
Plastic tub, play sand, spade or large spoon, ‘treasures’
Teach your toddler about textures and discovery with this simple, sandy activity.

All you need to do is fill a plastic tub with play sand and bury any sort of treasure you like in it…play money (pirate booty), large pebbles (dinosaur eggs) and smooth shells all work well – just make sure they’re suitable for your toddler’s age. Then, get them digging and watch their faces light up with each find!
