parenting hack: DIY covered sandbox for less than $20

When we first moved into our house I made a sand table out of some pressure treated wood and a covered plastic bin. The sand table was easily one of the most played with toys and treasured by both big kids. Sadly, the sand table met its demise when Elden leaned against it and it broke. We had been scouring the internet for a replacement sandbox but everything we liked was over $100. Since the plastic storage bin worked so well we figured why not make a sandbox out of the same thing?

We have plans to dig out a spot in the ground to make these "in-ground" sandboxes with pavers placed around them. For now these were a HUGE hit and for the price tag you couldn't beat it. In case you were curious, I used these storage bins and this sand.
