I wish you could have seen the joy on the girls’ faces when they opened a large box from our friends at Melissa & Doug FILLED with sand toys for us to review & giveaway — pure happiness!!!! I mean, what child wouldn’t absolutely LOVE to get a box filled with these lovely sand toys in the mail??
Mark and I totally surprised the girls with a trip to a nearby state park with a lake and large man-made sandy beach — they had a BLAST with these! The sand “baking” sets were particularly awesome because we are huge fans of pretend play, and it kept the girls happily occupied for hours!
Emily enjoyed “baking” lots of sand cakes….
…and Clara “baked” batch after batch of sand cupcakes!
I was particularly impressed with the quality of these Melissa & Doug sand toys — they are made to last! We’re hoping to use them year after year for lots of happy beach/sandbox memories.
The smiles didn’t stop all afternoon — great fun!!!
