The Wonderful World of Sand and Dirt

Over 100 Creative Ideas for Kids

How many educational activities can you think of that include sand and dirt?

My boys (and my rowdy girl) have often played in the dirt outside, creating bridges and tunnels and waterfalls and whirlpools, all fueled by the garden hose. The pressure of the water was adjusted according to whether they wanted a small rivulet or a raging torrent that knocked out bridges and splashed water off the rocks at the bottom of their waterfalls. They found a tube of PVC pipe which they buried under the dirt, and this created a whirlpool!

This is just one out of 100+ activities from this 80-minute workshop audio with a 141-page PDF slide show. Just wait until you see all the fun, wonderful, crazy ideas that you can do with sand, dirt, and mud!
