Bring the beach home with this easy-to-setup activity box.

What you'll need

  • Large container
  • Bag of sand
  • Shovels and toys

Ask your child to help you find the perfect container from around the house to make the sandbox: an old drawer, a worn-out suitcase, even a Tupperware basin. Take your pick outside, then fill it up with sand. Add a few toys, then dig in!
