We had no buckets and spades, no swimming things and no idea where to go until someone said something about sand dunes.
I remember playing in sand dunes as a kid and loving it so sand dunes it was!
We carried on driving until we got to Southport where we helpfully found an ice cream van in the car park!
Then I set the kids loose on the sand! They discovered running, digging, jumping and rolling and had a great time!
We walked for a bit on the beach as the tide was out and dug some more.
On the way back to the car we took a different path and found some really interesting looking trees which we obviously tried to climb!
What a great way to spend a couple of hours in the evening!
Taking a child with an ASD to sand dunes?
Sand and beaches are brilliant for sensory fun.
Make sure you closely supervise your child as sand dunes are easy to get lost in. If you stay together you will be fine.
