As I was thinking of things for Helayna to do at our house, I knew we really needed a few more kid-friendly experiences. When our kids were little, they spent countless hours in the sandbox so Grampa set about getting one ready. Of course last week it was second priority after some farming so today was the day to finally get it finished.
We headed over to a local landscape business and got a half yard of California beach sand. It's just beautiful - makes us feel like we are at the beach!
Once Grampa had the frame ready, Helayna directed him about where to put the sand.
We only needed half of this amount so we might have to build another box to use the rest up!
The smoothing out part was a cooperative effort.
And then the fun began!
We were shaking lots of sand out before she came in for supper! I hope this will be enjoyed by all of our little ones!
