Unplugged - Hot

We spent a lot of "hot" unplugged time this week...I didn't know the theme beforehand, but we were at the Jersey shore with my family. Despite the 12-hour car ride, it was a great vacation...both E and Baby m thought the sand was fantastic. E even made sand angels. If you don't believe we were hot, check out the picture of Baby m. It's become kind of a family tradition to sculpt strange things in the sand. We used to spend hours on large, elaborate (though very novice) designs, but now that we have two small kids, we go for small and fast. My "hot" cup of coffee fits the bill for this week's theme! Best that we kept it small, because as soon as we completed our "sand castle breakfast" E destroyed it using her best Swiper the Fox imitation. To quote her exactly, "You'll never fix your sand cup of coffee now! Heh, heh, heh." For the uninitiated, Swiper is the sneaky friend of Dora the Explorer...so much for "Unplugged"! :)

I love this-Art in the sand. And no better visual than a cup of coffee!
Wonderful idea. Our sand isn't really the molding kind but I may just work on it next time we are there.
