We received an email from Ohdeedoh reader Ellen simply asking: Suggestions for sandboxes/ water & sand tables for toddlers?
Well, Ellen, we've seen many small sandboxes and sand tables for sale at the usual toy outlets, but we're assuming you want something a bit better looking than those.
How about the sandbox pictured above? It's got a beautiful vinyl canopy that cranks down and covers the sandbox when not in use.
For sand tables, our first reaction is to make one yourself. We like this extremely easy table we found on Flickr. It's simply a plastic storage bin atop a bench/table. You can insert smaller bins to hold water.
If you've got some suggestions for Ellen, please share in the comments below!
