This morning I picked up large bags of play sand from the supermarket for £2.50 each, making the total cost only £11. That’s a budget sand box!
It’s just big enough for the girls to get in at the same time, though they are so active that there is usually one in and one out anyway! They added their sand and water toys and started on the sand castles straight away.
Cakie spent some time filling her muffin tin from her play garden and made me some delicious sand cakes.
She topped them off with grass and leaf sprinkles and some stick candles. Lovely natural imaginative play!
And we popped the shells and gold coins from the pirate small world play into the sand for some treasure hunting and seaside imagining!
Have you made your own sand box? I would love to see budget ideas or how-tos! Feel free to add a link to something you have made so we can see it.
