A priceless gift from Grandpa and Nanna

how cool is this?

One of the most gorgeous photos can just see the pure delight..
whoo hoo!
William Starting to lay the sand...
now you can see how the sand got shovelled on Deqlans head!
More more more!

Its finished! Grandpa and Nanna have been working on a secret project, will not so secret, cause we couldnt keep Deqlan out of it! They turned their Zen garden into a sensory garden for the boys! I spoke to one of my ASD mommy friends and she said they were making a sensory garden for their son, and the idea was born to use what we had and just add what was needed!
Grandpa and Nanna's house turned into IN THE NIGHT GARDEN ( if you havent watched you got to BBC Kids mornings round 0750, only way this post will make sense to you!) Grandpa turned into Maka Paka and washed a million pebbles! Nanna turned into Upsie Dasie, perfectly placing each pebble , positioning the bridge and organising the sand. Nothing is impossible to you both - anything to help Deqlan you do in a heartbeat and i cant thank you both enough for this priceless gift. I love you Grandpa and Nanna!
Nanna crossed paths with an amazing angel called Edward - who decided to donate a ton of play sand and have it delivered! We were thrilled when the truck arrived yesterday with the most beautiful sand! Deqlan had a ball to say the least - if i havent mentioned before ( i think i have at least 100 times) DEQLAN LOVES SAND - to eat it, to play in it, walk through it, rub it through his hair, throw it, lye in it, you name it. So he was in his element to climb on top of the sand mountain ( read Meggies comment to us yesterday, how apt!) The gentlemen who was shovelling the sand of the truck on the heap, didnt notice Deqlan sneak onto the pile and Deqlan enjoyed a shovel full of sand down his neck and back!

William, Nanna and Grandpa worked so very very hard on this project and it looks amazing! Its so lovely and thought out so very well! It has sand for Deqlan to play in and 3 different size pebbles and a bridge to balance on- its reall beautiful! We cant thank you enough for all the hard work you put in this and all the pleasure its going to bring to Deqlan and Keaton! I think you could definitely go into a 'sensory garden' business for sure!
Uncle Edward from Edco, thanks so so so very much for this wonderful gift, just know how much i am going to love every minute playing in the sand and how its going to help all my senses! Thank you so very very much, you have the best play sand in the world!
God Bless, lots of love

We had one at one of the schools i taught at and the kids loved ....we also planted different flowers that had nice smells like lavender and jasmin.......and ferns that tickled them when they walked through!!!!! As the where was a sensory path!!!!

We also had water fountain that made a noise and some wind chimes....

Great fun....i hope to have one and a tree house when we settle one day and have a big garden again!!!!! Hope the boys enjoy it!!!!!!!!!!!
