Happy as sandboys

The baby class has its own sandpit at our Little Chicks Nursey School and when it's time to play there the little ones say they're going to beach.
They have few inhibitions as they use their imagination to make up all kinds of sandpie dishes ... and, at times, eating them!
They discover new textures, improve hand-eye coordination and  mix and measure, so this messy play is very much a part of learning too.
As you can see from these pictures of Linus, Brian and Freddie  the children get covered in sand from head to foot but nursery assistant Auntie Lydia has them all cleaned up in no time.
