Exploring How A Digger Works In Different Types Of Sand

Teddy has been fascinated with diggers for about a year now. For the most part he’s simply enjoyed watching them at work, and shouting “digger digger” whenever he sees one…. but now he’s starting to play with them too….

Yesterday we discovered, however, that pushing diggers around in wet sand was much trickier than in dry sand….they just kept getting stuck….and the diggers had to work that little bit harder to shift sand!

And the digger’s shovel itself made much more sense as a tool with wet sand…..

It wasn’t long before Ted realised that although the diggers needed to work harder in the wet sand, it was much easier to build something, and it wasn’t long before he had collected stones and sticks to make a road…

This was great fun – especially collecting the sticks!
A very proud boy he was when he finished! 🙂
