(Classic Play) Dirt Discovery

Kids are drawn to dirt. Boys and girls alike can find the pull irresistible. Whether it is the simple pleasure of being dirty or the quest for treasure that lies just below the surface, us adults don’t always quite understand the appeal. Kids need those moments, though, to throw care to wind and become immersed in dirt play.

Look for, or create, a place with loose dirt in your yard that you can designate for the kids. Sandboxes are great, but are still a more defined form of play. Give them old tractors and dump trucks or even just plastic spoons. Turn them loose and watch the hours slip away.
