So, I went to Walmart the other night to buy milk and lightbulbs... and I came home with two bags of blue play sand. Why, you ask? Helloooooo?!?!? Because it's BLUE! How fun is that? (I'm such a sucker for new products. As my husband knows all too well.)
We put it in the rocketship sandbox, and Bea squealed with delight. Although, she got a little panicked when she thought her hands and feet were turning kinda Smurf-like. No worries, it rinses right off with the garden hose.
Our backyard rocketship was featured on Ohdeedoh this week in their "My Great Outdoors" projects. Woot! Once again, Eric's mad-dad-woodworker skills received lots of cool compliments.
