How to make a sand pit

In theory

  • Dig a hole.
  • Fill it with sand.
  • Put the child out to play.

In reality

  • Debate about whether to make one, buy one or just use the flower bed.
  • If buying or making find somewhere to place the sand pit.
  • If making, are railway sleepers suitable?
  • If buying, the yellow plastic tortoise or the wooden box?
  • Think about how to get a large amount of sand into it.
  • What kind of sand?
  • Realise that it rains a lot and the pit will need a cover.
  • Come up with a stop-the-cats-using-it-as-a-litter-box strategy.
  • Can I finish it in a weekend before the rugby starts?
