Vague question. How old are the kids? How large is the space? Do you own the home? Fenced in yard?
Sandboxes our cheap. We grabbed some buckets from dollar store and cut and made little houses . You can buy little people there too. I hate there nice inside toys being dragged outside and ruined. They absolutely love making junk toys . That and the sand box they will busy. Here is a picture of a trash can we hide in our garden. They made a toad house out of it. If you look closely you can see there is a toad in their trash can house. They are so proud! Happy creating.
How old are the kids? Tic tack toe, corn hole games?
I made a sandbox with a cheap kiddie pool, got sand from Home Depot. Our town has a “Mom Swap”, “Yard Sale”, & “Buy Nothing “page on Facebook where I’ve picked up some great things! Step2 Water table , play kitchen, trike, & more.
I saw a thing on pinterest the other day. Dollar store pool noodles cut in half and notched on both ends. Over sized lincoln logs they can use to build with!
