Natural sandpit tutorial

June 15th, 2010 · 1 Comment · crafty, nature

Start with a pile of free logs from around the neighborhood.

Chop them up into different lengths with a borrowed electric chainsaw.

Arrange them in a tight circle. You can even notch the sides so they fit tightly together. I requested that one log be placed on its side for easier entry.

Add play sand, hand-me-down tools, and friends. Mix well and enjoy.


The sand pit was originally inspired by this beautiful photograph

Check out this series from Let the Children Play on creating irresistible outdoor play spaces. I’ll be mining the series and blog for more great ideas.
