My Creative Space

I'm playing along with Kirsty at Kootoyoo today & showing you my Creative Space. Rather different & unusual but hey, it's what I've been up to today.

On Sunday we took a plastic bin to the beach & stole some. Yep we stole some beach. Hahaha... & here it is. This is our sand box. BJ doesn't like sand. He doesn't like the feel of it I guess. He doesn't like touching it much still with his hands. He definitely doesn't like standing on it on the beach. This could be since his accident when he burnt his feet & his feet may be a bit sensitive to stuff we don't know. So we thought we would get some beach to play with. He has had it sitting around for a few days now & goes & has a little play in it occasionally. I really like the drift wood, the sponges & rocks though. He likes those too as long as the sponges aren't wet. We did put those in a tub of water today too to play in & they are very different wet as dry.

Lucky I remembered the bucket of pavement chalk in the cupboard. That was fun. BJ thought that was pretty ace to scribble but then of course I had to draw things for him so he kept giving it back to me. So we did a really big flower, which he did get down to sniff. lol Then a guitar one of his favourite things. He did strum it a few times too. Ok, so it is obvious I can't draw but it worked for a 1 year old!
So that's my creative space today, for most of the day. I did get a couple of sets of blocks done inbetween times but it is a slow process. Pavement drawing is much more fun. Now it is starting to rain so it will be all clean for some more tomorrow!

nice backyard beach acquiring. i remember taking the long drive (3+ hours) to the nearest beach as a child to acquire some of it to take back to red dirt country for just the same purpose (although, i already loved the sand)
