|Fit the wood and sand in the back of |
the Prius like the PROS we are. G wasn't
happy (because Daddy ran into the
store- he kept yelling "Daddddddyyyyy!"
We had to purchase:
- Cedar Wood
- Landscape fabric (which we already had down)
- Play Sand (Cost: $2.48 per 50 lb bag)... Calculate how much you need here.
Pictures of Process
When we mulched our back area, we left a space open for the sandbox in the corner. It's got landscaping fabric down to help keep weeds from growing up in the sandbox. Daddy B piled the sand in the middle while he worked on the box itself.
Here Daddy B is, measuring out the wood for a 4x4' sandbox. G is helping.
Cutting the wood down to the correct size.
Daddy B used wood glue to put the wood together. This required a decent amount of time to let it dry.
Obviously this is a lot of fun ALREADY.
Daddy B made some stakes and screwed them into the bottom of the sandbox, then flipped the sandbox over to put it into the ground so it'd wouldn't shift.
Fill with sand. Cover child's feet if possible.
Finished! We'll probably add a cover and also an umbrella of some sort (a permanent one) eventually.
