by Carrie with Children with 41 comments

Maggie is so in love with her new sandbox! It’s practically impossible to get her out of it!


  • Marilyn @ A Lot of Loves

    I love how much my kids love their sandbox. I’m not so in love with how much sand comes in the house. Tip: If you let her wear a tutu in there, you will have sand pouring from her skirts for hours to come. I learned that the hard way. 🙂

    • Carrie with Children

      Ha! I know exactly what you mean about the sand getting in the house! Ugh! Seems like we’ve got in everywhere the last few days. Thanks for the tip on the tutu 🙂

  • Andrea

    This sandbox looks awesome! That’s definitely on my list for this summer too 🙂 She looks like she enjoys it a lot!

    • Carrie with Children

      I highly recommend a sandbox. Maggie has played in it non-stop the last few days. She LOVES it! 🙂

  • mizhelle

    how cute! looks like she’s so focused!

    • Carrie with Children

      Very focused! Playing in sand is *very* hard work 🙂

  • Melissa

    Looks like so much fun!

  • Tara @ Mommy Head Adventures

    That is one amazing looking sandbox!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks! Maggie is loving it! It’s a Step2 brand and we love it because it has a lid! Keeps out the dog and neighborhood cats!

  • Mimi

    Oh I wish the weather was warm enough here for playing in a sand box!!

    • Carrie with Children

      We’ve been pretty lucky here in Florida the last week or so. It’s been in the mid-70s! Yay for Spring! I hope the warmer weather finds you soon!

  • Crissy

    Cute! I am wondering what the appropriate age for a sand box is…

    • Carrie with Children

      My Maggie is 28 months old and is in LOVE with this sandbox. It took her awhile to warm up actually sitting in it, she started sitting on the side. Now..she jumps right in, no problem!

  • Merry120

    She looks like she’s having a blast! Evan doesn’t have a sandbox but he does have a sand table. He often pours the sand out on the ground which drives me nuts but he thinks is great fun.

    • Carrie with Children

      Ha! My Maggie loves to pour the sand *out* of the sandbox too!

  • Carrie

    My girls love their sandbox too. Now if it would just dry out enough for them to play in it!

    Happy WW!

    • Carrie with Children

      Sandboxes are tons of fun, aren’t they?! We have a tough time getting Maggie out of hers!

  • Lolo

    That sandbox is awesome!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks! Maggie is loving it and we’ve had plenty of great outside weather this week!

  • Steph

    Sigh. I’m going to start running out of room in our backyard if I buy a sandbox….she looks like she’s having a fab time.

    Happy WW and thanks for the linky 🙂

  • Jessica

    Good thing spring is almost here so the weather will be nicer and she can spend more time in that sandbox.

    • Carrie with Children

      It’s already Spring here in Florida! Today’s high is 76! Yay for more sandbox time!

  • {Not Quite} Susie Homemaker

    Cute! My kiddo is obsessed with his, too.

  • Gina

    You’re very brave – I’m afraid to get my son a sandbox, he’d be a disaster in it!!

    • Carrie with Children

      Oh yes, Maggie is a disaster in it! lol She has realized that sand isn’t good to eat. 🙂

  • Jackie

    I want to get a sandbox this spring for my son… I think he’d love it! I just need to find a good sized one with a lid or else the area kitties will be using it for a litter box!

    • Carrie with Children

      Jackie – The one we bought is a Step2 brand..plenty of room for two kids..maybe even three and it comes with a lid, that was my main requirement. We are really happy with it so far.

    I miss those days!
    The sandbox was by far the coolest thing and the one activity they loved the most. And several Mom’s refused to deal with the mess, so I was the cool Mom since we had two. Covering them is a good thing – yes, Jackie, cats do like them!
    But hours and hours of peace and quiet …

    • Carrie with Children

      I know what you mean about the mess…but good for you for having two of them! A sandbox top is a “must”…too many cats in our neighborhood! 🙂

  • Magical Mouse Schoolhouse

    So sweet!

    Thanks for linking up at Tiggerific Tuesday and following Magical Mouse Schoolhouse! Be sure to stop by today for GIVEAWAY Wednesday!

  • Darcy

    I wish it was nice enough here to play in the sandbox 🙂

  • Amber

    We were just talking about getting G a sandbox when the weather warms up, how fun!

  • Emily faliLV

    You are one brave woman! My son would so be pooping sand, and my grass would be trashed!! We are going to try a water/sand table this summer though. “)

  • Miranda

    You always make me so jealous of all that warm weather :). We moved to our place last year and it already had a sandbox. My daughter was still too little last year to play in it so this year – let the fun begin!

  • Jennifer

    What a cutie! It looks like she is having a blast!

  • Vanessa

    Ah, so cute!!

  • A Mommy in the City

    Oh wow! I bet she loves that. So jealous that she can be outside in a short sleeve shirt!!

  • 1ne Proud Mama

    We have that same sandbox! But most of the sand ends up on the patio. I think we need to buy some more. Sanboxes are the best though!

    Hope you are doing well! XoXo

  • Lois

    Well I kinda botched up the Linky with my name instead of a title but HAPPY WW anyway
