Hello Ocean
National Play in the Sand Day
-- Playing in the sand is all about building sandcastles, digging holes, and playing with friends! We can build sandcastles, search for buried treasure, and more! It does not matter where you play in the sand - whether on the beach, in the sand pit, or on a construction site. Even adults may dig in the sand on this day!

Read: Hello Ocean
-- Relive a day at the beach with this lovely book of memories. You can almost feel the salt spray on your face and smell the musky scent of the ocean in the cool morning air. Remember how the sand squishes between your toes as the tide rushes to shore and taste the tang of the ocean on your lips. Spirited language evokes a sense of closeness and nostalgia for an old friend. The inspiration of the ocean will make learning the five senses as easy as a day at the beach.

-- Bring excitement, imagination, and movement to the beach or sandbox with this colorful sand and water funnel. Pour water or sand through this whimsical tower of sea creatures, then watch as the different layers funnel, tip, spin, and sift! The bright colors and sea creature decorations add to the fun, and the carry handle adds to the convenience. This toy encourages hands-on exploration and outdoor play and inspires creative fun in the sand and water.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
