My kids love sand and I’ve wanted to get them a sandbox for quite some time, but I wanted something sturdy (not a plastic turtle) and something that fit nicely in our backyard. After searching for something suitable, we decided to DIY!
We slapped it together with some extra wood and paint that we had lying around, along with an aluminum piece from Canadian Tire for the bottom. We made it a family affair and let the kids help paint. I think my 2 year old still has brown paint under her toenails.
We just need to figure out a cover for it so that our neighbourhood cats and raccoons don’t make a home there overnight.
This was so easy to make and it has already provided the kids with hours of fun! Now I just need to find a way for the sand to stay out of our house once they come indoors…
