I just spend the last 30 minutes after dinner playing with the girls in their new sandbox. It's big, we made it 6' x 4' so the girls can climb in and play hard. My question is now, how do you get them clean enough to come inside? I didn't think of that part when I had dreams of this grand sandbox. All I was thinking of was the awesome sandbox I had when I was a kid. The sandbox that was so big I could lay down and get buried in it. So, mom, did I just traipse sand through your house?
Tonight my solution was to end sandbox play about 10 minutes before time to go in, then we washed our hands and feet in a bucket of water. Then we ran around in the grass, hoping that sand particles were falling off there instead of on my carpet later. Anyone out there with any tips or suggestions, I'm all ears.
Oh, and by the way... they had a really great time playing in the sand!
