We do the same but with kinetic sand my son got as a gift! It’s nice that he can play anytime not just during the summer
Thats a great idea, I was thinking of getting my girl a sandpit but was worried about the stray cats.
I’m gonna do this instead.
We do this indoors with uncooked/dry black beans! It’s super easy to clean up when they get everywhere.
Tote boxes with lids are the mvp of toddlerhood. Perfect for small ball pits, rice sensory bins, sand boxes.
For any parents of little little ones, chuck a few handfuls of cheerios into a food processor and blitz it until it’s like sand. We did that for our <1 year old to play with. Who cares if he eats it!
I do this indoors with rice! Old spoons, serving utensils, measuring cups, and funnels make it a lot of fun. I throw a blanket underneath for an easy way to put the fallen pieces back in the tub.
Ummm, I love this!!! I’m definitely gonna do it!
I would do that. But somehow my goblin manages to bring sand with her from the park to our kitchen. I don’t want to know how worse it could get.
This has been a big hit with both the baby and preschooler. Any shallow tote box works, and the 50lb bag of sand was about $6.
