Our Homemade Sandbox

sandboxI was telling my my sister-in-law Sarah how much fun my boys had playing in a friend’s sand table and how I hoped to find one on clearance at the end of the summer.  She suggested making my own by using large disposable aluminum foil baking pans and filling them with sand.

Brilliant.

I got the idea to buy a long shallow plastic tub with a lid so that the boys could have a sand box on the deck and could be covered up for later use.

Here’s my recipe for a Mobile/Homemade Sandbox:

– (1) Large shallow plastic tub with wheels and a snap on lid = ($10)

–  A couple of bags of play sand ($2.89ea). (One bag filled the tub above)

– (1)  set of measuring cups and spoons ($0.97)

Total Spent $13.86

I also found this recipe for moon sand which I am planning to try in the next few days.

So what about you?

Any frugal projects that have made your summer fun?

Please share, you know I am not that creative and need some help in this area!
