Play in the Sand Day

There are few activities as freeing as playing in the sand. Running barefoot along a beach or wiggling toes back and forth while standing in sand both bring the feeling. But there are many other ways to play in the sand besides running or standing in it, and beaches and sandboxes both provide places to play. Sandcastles and sand sculptures can be built. Shovels, buckets, and sieves can be used to move sand about. Friends can be partially buried. Seashells can be looked for. There are an endless amount of ways to play in the sand.

How to Observe Play in the Sand Day

Kick-off your shoes and get to a beach or sandbox! Run around barefoot or let someone bury you with sand. Grab a bucket and shovel and build a sand sculpture or sandcastle!
