My Sand and OR Water Table - By Carter

Mom and Dad got me this really neat Sand & Water Table for my birthday!  Right now, there is only sand in it though.  I heard Mom say that the table is meant to have sand in one side and water in the other side, but that the person who designed it and thought that the sand would actually stay in the sand side and the water would stay in the water side must not have children. She said that the sand and water would just take turns in the table at our house.

So, here I am playing in the sand.  Mom had just dumped in a fresh bag of white sand, and I was lovin' the big scoops!

"Hmmm... do you think some of the sand will fit in my handy little pocket?  Mom will love that come laundry day."

"Now, really, it wouldn't be right NOT to pour scoops of sand all over the ground here.  Dad says that ever since Mom put up that stinkin' swimming pool here last year by the deck, the grass doesn't grow here anyway.  I think ant-hill-like piles of sand all around this area would look great." 

So there you have it... the sand has had it's turn!  Once it warms up around here (Mother Nature, it IS supposed to be summer around here, you know!) Mom will let water have it's turn in the table!

What a fun table! I totally agree about keeping the sand and water separate. The mess is maddening otherwise!

My kids loved the little water table you had at your house last summer so I ended up getting a similar one for them. Of course, it's still in it's box waiting for the day when the temperature climbs somewhere above 75 degrees. This weather has been crazy!

As I was reading this I was thinking about how the modern, commercial world has taken a free thing like dumping sand into a tire or box and filling a metal tank with water... and turned it into a plastic table with a lid for forty bucks... and then I remembered when you were a kid with the cats in the sand and the bugs in the water... maybe modern, commercial isn't so bad after all. Love, Mom
