Super Quick and Easy DIY: Tabletop Sandbox
Create this tabletop sandbox for your kids—it’s easy, there’s no sewing required and you’ll have it together in less than 5 minutes. Is it messy? Maybe. But will it keep the kids entertained, you betcha. All you need is a sturdy box with a lid, play sand (I found both at Michaels) and small toys and figures.
Pour the sand into the box, provide your child with a few toys and that’s it. Kids can create scenes for stop animation movies, excavate to discover artifacts, or dig for buried treasure.
Giving it as a gift? Turn it into a kit by burying some dinosaurs or toys, and tying it off with a small paint brush and a few wide popsicle sticks for digging and excavating.
