Tropical Destination

Our Airport/airplane dramatic play continues with wonderful role playing.

Part of our original plans were to have a baggage conveyor belt.  
Well neither my husband or myself could figure out how to make one but one of our families could.
This mom used a piece of eavestrough that was in the corner to make a luggage ramp.  She told me that her son talks about last years fieldtrip to the airport and how they watched the pink suitcase come down the ramp.
Today we made it more permanent.

For our tropical destination we had moved all the sand from the sandbox in to a wading pool. Placed a palm tree beside it and added shovels with pails.

It is busy everyday.  I enjoy watching how many children can fit comfortably around the sandpool plus their grown ups.

Big trucks and little trucks came and went.

And the construction and deconstruction of sand castles happened.

 By everyone!
