First step in creating the Sandbox is a trip to the hardware store to purchase lumber and gravel. Or, in toddler world, a trip to the amusement park complete with make-shift playgrounds consisting of wheels, metal bars to climb and swing on, and long hallways to run down!
Thirdly you need to set out your boards and dig your corner holes:
At 19 months Blythe has already learned how the construction world works; one works while the rest watch!
Fourth step is to screw your corner post into your side boards. This creates a mud pit and if you are as lucky as we are, you have a cutie who looks like this!
Next it's time to dump in the gravel, transforming the mud pit into a gravel pit. Baby is please with this new pit as well!
And the final step is to invite friends over for dinner and fill up the sandbox with sand!
