Fab Family Fun: Portable Sandboxes
I saw this in Family Fun magazine a few days ago and thought it was brilliant, probably because I always wanted a sandbox and never had one. I thought about buying my kids one of those plastic crab or turtle ones but they cost more than I wanted to pay.
Instead of buying a large, expensive sandbox, make each child their own portable one with a plastic storage container on wheels!
Fill the container with sand and let the kids play in it with toy shovels, rakes, etc. At night, cover it with the lid to keep out bugs and rain. Then in the winter, just wheel it into the garage.
I love it!
