I haven't figured this out yet . . .

A Little Bit Of Beach

We’d wanted to get a sandbox for the kids for a while now, mostly so they would stop playing with dirt.

This didn’t really work, because they still want to play with dirt, but the sandbox is a nice alternative option. We got the Step 2 Naturally Playful Summertime Center and the nice thing about it is that it comes with a bench, table and umbrella for the kids to have snacks on.

If you’re in the market for a sandbox, I would recommend this one, although, like everyone who’s reviewed this product, I would say that the lid for the sandbox is flimsy and doesn’t keep water out in a heavy rain. But the kids seem to enjoy it enough.

I never had a sandbox when I was a kid. I think if I ever wanted to play with sand, we could have just gone down to the beach. But since we’re not in Hawaii, that’s not really an option year-round, and as I learned last summer, it’s a big to do packing up two toddlers and all the necessities for a trip to the beach.

This wasn’t an issue when we lived on the beach and had a giant sandbox in our back yard, but the kids seem to remember having a lot of fun playing with sand, so a sandbox was inevitable. The only thing this sandbox is missing are wide open spaces and tiny crabs for my children to chase back into their burrows.

    I think our sandbox has been one of the best investments we’ve spent on our kiddos. We’re also thinking of getting a water table for them. A friend of mine has one and my little ones LOVE it.

      We have a water table as well and that’s also a great playtime investment, especially if your kids love playing with water.
