Sandbox for Kids: DIY Sandbox


Sandbox for Kids

This is a great Sandbox for Kids idea….I actually came across this  DIY Sandbox idea for a Storage Bin Sandbox earlier in the Summer and made these up back in June for my boys. Our sandbox was put out of its misery after last Summer (and I was not sad) …. it was such a mess.

I love this idea because it is not only economical, it is a great way to keep your sandbox clean…and when you no longer want your sandbox….well just throw out the sand and you can clean the storage bin to use elsewhere.


Sandbox for Kids: DIY Sandbox Cost Break Down:

Storage Bin with Lid $6.50 each

5 pound bag of Sand $4.00

So I was able to make 2 personal sandboxes for just $17 (or $8.50 each)


I made the mistake of only making up one storage bin sandbox for both boys to share…that lasted about 15 minutes before I sent my husband out for another bin. Two Sandboxes worked out much better than one since my little one can get spastic and sand goes flying…right into big brothers eyes. Plus big brother is so particular about his sandbox decor.

My kids are almost 4 and 6…so I think one box per kid is a good amount of real estate.

These Sandboxes have entertained my kids throughout the Summer.


…and when we are done I just pop the lid on and wah-la!

Enjoy! And Don’t forget to PIN it! (The Button is directly below!)
