Sand Storm

 My son has been really in love with outer space for a while now.  His favorite planet is Saturn and he is fascinated by the sand storms on Mars.  Just before bed we were exploring sand on the light panel - drawing with our fingers, making tracks with airplanes, etc.  I gave him the "five more minutes and its time for books and bed", and then he sucked me into some fun that lasted way more than 5 minutes (its a good thing he really has no concept of time - LOL).  He went into the closet, brought out a straw, and started blowing the sand.  "Its a sand storm, Mommy!!" 

blown sand art - great for oral motor development

"I made two planets, Mommy."

"That round one looks like a crater!  That's cool!"

Apparently it was bright in the room....sunglasses?  LOL
This activity was F-U-N!! 



  1. I would love to know what "light panel" you have. I have a 2 year old and want to purchase him one. This looks like SO much fun!!

  2. What a great blog! Thanks for your fun ideas. I am a mom of 3, plus a preschool teacher at a Reggio inspired school and can tell you that I will be borrowing a lot of your ideas.


  3. You - Yes You! - have been awarded a Versatile Blogger Award!!! http://ahimsamama.com/2012/01/who-me-the-versatile-blogger-award/ Congrats!

  4. I too would love to know how you made this. My kids would love it.

  5. This is cool! Is it just sand on light table? Where did you get yours from? I teach Kindergarten and would love to incorporate this!!
