The Sandbox: Part Deux
The discussion on sandbox sand nearly two years ago (where does the time fly) is surely one of the most referred to urbanMamas posts. Amy would like to broaden that discussion a bit to see your take on the best DIY boxes as well as alternatives. She emails:
We're redoing our backyard and considering a sand box. I've read through the old post on safe sand (good to know!), and there were a couple of ideas on alternatives to sand boxes, and that got me thinking. I'd love some more thoughts on the pros and cons of sandboxes, ideas on making our own great sandbox (with a lid or cover!), comments on store-bought sandboxes you've tried and loved/hated, or alternatives to sandboxes that allow that same kind of tactile, messy-fun play outside.
