Build your own Sandbox

Kids of all ages love to play in the sand. It can be a construction site, made into a sand castle or add water for a muddy mess. It is easy and inexpensive to build a sandbox in
your own back yard to enjoy for the entire summer.

When you are deciding where to put your sandbox try and find a location that gets a lot of shade throughout the day. When the sun is hot, and the kids still want to be outside this
will be a great activity for them if it is out of the sun. Build your own Sandbox
