National Play in the Sand Day

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope everyone has something to look forward to this weekend… Me, I just look forward to the weekend in general, plans or no plans… Something else I always look forward to are holidays. I truly love any reason I can find to celebrate… I mean why not, right?! And who better to look to for something to celebrate than trusty ol’ Hallmark, that’s what they do isn’t it… Help us celebrate life moments! So while perusing Hallmarks Ultimate Holiday site earlier this week I came across something we can all celebrate this weekend as this coming Saturday, August 11th is National Play in the Sand Day! (not sure why I'm capitalizing that… just seems like the appropriate thing to do) Some of my best childhood memories were made playing in the sand and I'm also pretty sure about 90% of the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I ate near the beach or on a park bench as a kid contained thousands of grains of sand. From playing in the sandbox at an age too early for me to recall to all the sand filled arts and crafts I made throughout my years as a Girl Scout, and even once winning the Crown Memorial Beach Sculpture and Sand Castle Contest when I was about 10… my memories of playing in the sand are something I will always carry with me. So while I'm not sure I will actually be playing in the sand this weekend I will remain hopeful that all of you who are within an arms reach of a sand box, beach, sand dune or what have you, will take full advantage of this chance to celebrate and will enjoy National Play in the Sand Day! Below are 10 pinterest pics of suggested sandy activities to celebrate this holiday!
