DIY Sandbox Idea

Is there a child who doesn’t like sand, buckets, shovels, molds and excavators? Really, sandbox is a bit of a headache for parents because sand is everywhere – in hair, T-shirts, panties, diapers… However, parents will usually get over it and let their children play and enjoy. Maybe you’ll go to some park with a sandbox, and maybe you’ll make or buy one for your own backyard or balcony. You need sandbags that you can buy at any DIY store. You can order these sandboxes, or you can make them yourself if you have old pallets. For this purpose you can also use boards from an old closet.

For the simplest solution, you will need boards, a saw or a circular saw, nails, screws, etc… Make a frame of planks, place stronger nylon on the floor, fasten it on all sides to the planks (for example with a stapler) and then pour sand from the bags on it.

Below you can see so cool and very creative sandbox – doubles as a deck and can fold into a bench!

“Rob says it’s very important to paint those multi colors on the slats before assembling the pit. (Otherwise, things can take an extremely messy turn.) After constructing the pit’s base, which provides drainage and extra strength for the bench, Rob moves onto the frame, sides and lid. Then, it’s time to pour the sand inside, which only costs $8 a bag. He puts the finishing touches on, like ropes to easily open and close the lid, and latches for locking and unlocking the pit”.
Cool idea for relaxation and playing with your loved ones. ENjoy!
