It's no secret that we love repurposing things. It's the true key to being a great resourceful and thrifty parent (and non parent alike). Sometimes it gets trickier when the item you're repurposing was made specifically for one thing. In this case, it's an under the bed storage box with a lid.

With the addition of a bag of sand, a sandbox was made. It's just the right size to keep things in control and perfect for small spaces. It would be a perfect fit on a small patio or terrace even to help keep your little one's entertained.

to see just how easy it is and check out another great use for this style of container just in case a sandbox isn't your idea of a good time!

We picked up this great little idea from the Mom mastermind behind Filth Wizardry. She credits Thrifty Craft Mama for the original idea and both creations look like a Summer full of fun!

Filth Wizardry also shows us that these boxes make for a great impromptu pool. Her kids decided to paint each other with sidewalk chalk paint and had a blast doing so!

Check out more Summer fun ideas from the two great blogs mentioned above! You're sure to come away with some inspiring ideas to keep the good times rolling!
