Happy childhood by the sea
When I grow up, I still miss the games I played as a child. One summer evening, I went to the beach with my friends, the sun was about to set and the wind was blowing, my friend Mia suggested “hey! Let’s make a castle with sand!”
Then we started a huge project, we built castles, hills, and then dug a canal around it, and when we irrigated the water into the moat, a village that belonged to us was ready.
The reality that worries me
To this day, I still think back to those happy times many years ago, but look around me, Thomas is playing computer game, he is only 7 years old and already wears thick glasses. Jason, 4 years old, was playing a game of “snow” as he ripped magazines to shreds, he spread them all over the place while standing on the couch, and screamed ” It’s snowing now!”
I persuaded Thomas to “stop playing video games”, Thomas still stared at the computer “I’m going to win, keep Jason quiet!”
I went to the couch , try to get Jason to stop, but he immediately jumped off the couch and ran around the house and spread shreds of paper.
Without a doubt, it was a disastrous day. It all went on and on until one day I saw sand art toys on Amazon and I bought several. When these products arrived at my house, two kids immediately ran to me, “What new toys are these! They look so special!”.
How the Sand playset Saved Me
That afternoon we did castles, hills, moats together, and I felt like I was back in those evenings by the sea with my friend Mia years ago. Unlike before, I found that my children were more creative than me and Mia, and they used sand to create fairy tales of dwarves and elves, unicorns, Aquaman and his generals. If it wasn’t for this toy, I wouldn’t know they have such a rich imagination.
