“One day during filming, George Clooney was wearing his surf shirt and board shorts, and my six-year-old daughter was in the background as an extra, playing in the sand – playing herself. She and Clooney suddenly looked equally Hawaiian, equally related to the place I call home.” – Kaui Hart Hemmings
History of Play in the Sand Day
The creator or founder of Play in the Sand Day is still unknown. Initially, it was making artistic sandcastles and soft sculptures out of sand and water, but now it embraces anything you can do in the sand. On Play in the Sand Day, various contests will be conducted on the many beaches around the world. Many beaches have easy access to food, water, and fun near them, but it is not a necessity. Bring some small trowel, a couple of Pails and enjoy the creativity which generates from you. Build a trench around your stuff, and fill it with water. Make sand beds, so your comfort is perfected. Set up a small building with sand, put the smallest child in and make them the king of the new sand kingdom.
