Indoor Sandbox

I couldn’t resist it. My mother in law shipped out my husband’s matchbox collection and, wow, the light bulbs went off, in a crazy kind of way, for my preschooler. My son wanted to “dig in the sand”. So…what the heck…it is cold and rainy in Seattle…We had a bunch of really fine sand left over from a beach sensory tub last summer (if you go to a pet store it is in the reptile section)…

…and every once and a while you’ve got to say, “really, what is the big deal?” The clean up wasn’t too bad. I rolled the mat up and dumped it outside, then I swept (With the help of my toddler, of course) the floor, then I vacuumed the floor. Really, not a lot of time and no big deal, especially for the amount of joy it brought my sons for HOURS. I’d do it again, hands down.

Have fun! Get messy! Drag out the vacuum! Call it a day! Come back and visit soon!


  1. Once, when I was keeping my nieces for a week (in addition to my own kidlets), I inflated a kiddie pool in my kitchen, and let them swim inside. They thought it was the most fun thing ever. One of them asked my daughter, “Is it always like this at your house??” :)
