Props: Soft toy teddy bears, sand.
In the kindergarten sandpit, one child says they are playing hide and seek with the teddies - that beds are being dug for them. The sand is piled on top of the hidden teddies in a conical sandcastle shape. A girl who seemed in charge of the teddies objected to this explanation and said, "No, we're burying all the teddies what died." The children dug holes with their hands, buried the teddies, uncovered them, then re-buried them again.
