Every time I take the girls to the neighborhood toy store, they always have to play with a tiny sand box for a good 10 minutes. It’s called My Little Sandbox.
They have all different themes: pirates (shown), castle, dinosaurs, farm and many more.
When we went to the beach we saved some sand and shells. I wanted to do a project with them but wasn’t sure what. Then I realized I could make a little beach sand box. Just like the ones they love playing with at the toy store. They can just add little toys to it.
I used 1×3’s at 12″ long. Assembled with my handy kreg jig. Then added a plywood bottom. Puttied the jig holes and sanded it all down. I thought about painting it, but decided au natural would be easier.
Then added the beach sand and shells.
This is going to stay a garage and outside toy. And when all the sand goes away, we will just have to make another trip to the beach. It’s only a 10 hour drive!
