Playing in the sand

Give your children the pleasure of playing in the sand. Many places in Lapland there are sandy beaches. Some of the beaches you will see from the road. To find other Lapland sandy beaches you can ask locals or at the tourist offices.

Every now and then you should stop at such places. When you walk a beach it is really tempting to take off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes or tickle the soles of your feet. Especially your children will love this and thank you for stopping.

Writing or drawing in the sand is a nice pastime for small children. But also for adults and youth. You can even encouringe your children to write small poems in the sand. Take a little time for this.

Also let your child build castles, or even more humble buildings, in the sand. Maybe they can build something they have seen in Lapland.

Sand is a fickle material

. The traces you made and your drawings or "literature" or contructions will relentlessly be wiped out by winds and tidal waters. Norwegian Lapland tides are more than two metres, whereas Finnish Lapland tides in the Baltic can barely be seen.

On sandy beaches you can set your footprints and other imprints. You can create something. But the great thing with sand is that the traces you made are unique just for a short time. The original artpiece vanishes after a short time. After that the beach prepares itself for the next guest.

Use your camera

If you have a camera it is recommended that you perpetuate this experience. Let your child also do the shooting. Children often see other angles than adults.

Only your camera can perpetuate what you created. But the original is gone, and it can't never ever be retrieved again. A sad thought. But being active with the sand is inspiring.

And remember that writing in the sand has long traditions. Even Jesus wrote in the sand according to the apostle John - even if we don't know what he wrote. So your in good company.

Here are more great ideas for playing in the sand and with sand.
