DIY Tent Sandbox
If you have little ones – a sandbox is such a great way to keep their little hands busy and their imaginations active. But not everyone has the know-how to whip up a sandbox from scratch.
This DIY tent sandbox is an easy way to make a sandbox happen this weekend – plus you can do it all for about $25!
First you'll need a tent.
A tent with a waterproof bottom will both keep moisture out from the rain, keep animals out at night, and keep the sand clean. A tent that has the option of a screen window for ventilation is best, but if you have it positioned in the shade, any tent should be okay.
I recommend this Happy Camper 2-Person Tent because it's the least expensive (ONLY $13.47 Shipped!) and gets a good rating. If you have an old tent then that's even better (You can't beat FREE!) You could also check out the following options:
Ozark Trail Kids Camping Tent – $14.96
Ozark Trail Kids Tent (2 colors) – $17.44
Next you'll need about 5 bags of Play Sand.
And you're in luck! This weekend Home Depot has the Quikrete Play Sand 50 Lb Bags for only $2.50 each! So you'll wind up paying about $12.50 for 5 bags. (You can always go back for an extra couple bags if you like, but it's better to get 5 and see if it's enough so you don't have to return any bags)
Total Cost = $25.47!
Pick up a few sand toys from the Dollar Tree and you're ready to play!
Thanks, Faithful Farmwife!
