Play With Sand


This morning, after having breakfast and doing some housework, i take Miaomiao out with her plastic toys. We plan to play with sand in the sand pool beside the South Lake Peninsula nearby with these toys such as keg, scoop, spoon, and rake. We meet our neighbour’s child who named Tommy and his mother downstairs and invite them to go with us.

We walk to the sand pool nearby. Miaomiao and Tommy run happily on the way. After arriving, we find there are already many kids playing in the sand pool. Miaomiao and Tommy jump into the sand pool and start to play with sand with the plastic toy tools we bring. They shovel sand into the keg and then pour the sand out of the keg when the keg is full. During this time, an older boy comes here and shovel sand with his own shovel and put the sand into our keg. Tommy pours the sand out and cries “Don’t put sand in the keg”. The older boy doesn’t listen and continues to shovel sand into the keg, and Tommy pours the sand again and lifts the keg away from that boy. Tommy’s mother explains that Tommy doesn’t like to play with that older boy because he didn’t play with him before, and also he thinks the keg doesn’t belong to that boy. I think she is right. Because when Miaomiao shovels sand into the keg, Tommy plays by himself with no rejection. This indicates that kids also have some kind of lord consciousness. They prefer to play with their familiar partners rather than the new one. And they don’t like some unfamiliar guys to touch their belongings. Adults are also the same.
Miaomiao and Tommy play in the sand pool for a long time. Until it’s time for lunch, they are willing to be back with us. And we also make appointment to play together next time here.
