Sand for a sandbox is available; it’s also known as play sand. The sand is sieved and rinsed, has a fine grain and therefore perfect for children to play in.
Do you already have sand at home? Check the following points:
- Is the sand sticky? With sand that is too loose, children cannot build sand castles and that takes away from the fun of playing in the sandbox!
- Is there any clay in the sand? Clay dirties the knees and creates brown stains on clothing.
- Are there no sharp pieces in the sand? If there are pieces of rubble in the sand, children can get bruised.
