Children's sandbox with their hands

Games in the golden sand - not just for childrenfun and important part of the growing man. Young architects using pasochek-blades not only hone fine motor skills, but also develop a wealth of imagination, spatial thinking. So if you have a cottage, summer cottage, country house with a courtyard, playground for the construction of mini-towers and the castle walls to appear without fail. Especially since the sandbox with his own hands built relatively quickly and easily. That's what we try to prove.


  • Children's sandbox with their hands
  • More comfort - more complex project
  • Constructive in kids benefit
  • Finally

To avoid the most serious troubles,accompanied by the appearance of the future "micro-building site" (cats, "leakage" loose weight and weeds), will have to make some effort. Even for the simplest structures (closes at night), we need a lot: at least 8 of boards length of about 1.20 m, plane, meter-long timber, sand crust, plywood (thick, water-resistant), agrovoloknom (1.20 to 1.50), screws, screwdriver, stapler 8 door hinges. Add to the list of paint.


The easiest way to make a sandbox without cover, but cats have in this case does not delight


It covers a lot of options there for sandboxes, including hard board, shot down from the boards

Children's sandbox with their hands

Consistently describe the main stages of the construction of the simplest (but not devoid of comfort plaque) varieties of our facility.

  • Boards handled carefully: using planer cut off the spines, grind sandpaper surface. Absolutely smoothly it should be on all sides - in order to avoid injury to the child.
  • The next step - timber harvesting (to try onwidth of the board). When a board width of 10 cm saw off four 20-centimeter bar: on every ledge go two boards. Planer, sandpaper put in order bars.
  • Getting skeleton collection. Bruce set the corners, screws, wood screws to fasten it to the bottom tier of the boards (at least twice on each fold). Make sure that the metal cap is not sticking out above the surface.
  • There was all the second tier. After screwing the boards get ready box. Square or rectangular it to be - you decide for yourself (sandpit with a cover with their hands may well be elongated).
  • Case dimensions (side length, the height of the side) is recorded as accurately as possible - to mark the plywood sheet, which later transformed into the cover of our facilities.
  • Sheet rascherchivaem, providing its division into 4 parts: two horizontal seats and two holding supports their future shops. Cut along the lines veneer - obtain 4 rectangles.
  • Now for loops. They should be self-tapping screws to fasten the lid on the outside - that the inner cover strips are folded up when opened. We do the same on the opposite side.
  • Before you start to mount the cover elements to the sandbox, it is necessary to paint the frame and both halves of the cover (it is the same - the bench), from all sides. The best choice - nitro imposed in two layers.
  • Let us turn to the bottom. Agrovoloknom spreads on the bottom, and then attach it to the sides of the stapler capacity. Lifting and folding the edges in the corners, fasten a layer at mid-height. Turning out of the corner, we fix them outside.
  • Came the final moment - screwing the two-stalls cover the sidewalls of the box to the fragments of the future child "stroyuchastka". The course will screws.

Now we know how to make a sandbox with a lidhands - convenient for the kids and do not need a daily check for the absence of traces of cat litter in it. If desired, the structure can be improved by attaching a small handle to the upper horizontal line. All four rectangles are "working" on the outer fold. Double-bent so that each component is converted into a long-sidenitse shop for kids. Both the central line of plywood covering reached the edge of the land outside the box. Agrovoloknom pass water - the rain will not cause much damage.

More comfort - more complex project


Convenient sandpit with a double lid, turning into wooden benches

improved type bench - with backs- Can also be provided in the construction of the sandbox for the children with their hands entirely of boards. Why from the boards? Yes, because the plywood for such constructive ideas would be "rather weak" material. Since building the thing solidly, solid, calculated, may not one but two or three children, which will be able to join and adults, it makes sense to spend money on more serious Materials. Boards will take longer, but it is advisable to replace the hinges kalitochnymi.

The above - not the whole set of usefulons that can transform the subject of our descriptions in the construction, designed for years of successful operation. When the family grows a few children whose parents are hospitable and happy to take friends and family who are accustomed to "friendship families", they will think, perhaps, the details more important. For example, on how to make a secure sandbox, not only for young actors, but also for adults who like to remember his childhood and "off" in the architectural improvisation.

Advanced version of the sandbox with cover, turning into benches: backless (open part) and the backrest (now closed)

Agree, it would require moresustainable and extensive creative sector. Why not provide a sandbox with long support legs that will be included in the ground deep enough and informed frame stability. Many consider this innovation thoughtful and reasonable. And who hurt benches with backs? However, for such a "bouquet" of ergonomic improvements have to do the cover of the three bands-components. Seats will double, and the third "lid" will turn into a series of hinged stand at the back of children and "played in childhood" parents. Such a powerful bench all survive.

Constructive in kids benefit

What is most important for a child of tender age -say, from a year to three or four? Perhaps not overheat in the sun, fascinated by the game of crisp-pasochki slides. For the inhabitants of such a mini-sand quarries provide good roof - the wooden or cloth. It is quite difficult to pull over the impressive "buildings", but over the medium-sized malyshovom trough-square build - no question. Of course, need stand: in the corners of a square or in the center (on both sides). The latter will allow to realize the dream of a sailboat or yacht. Perhaps you will inspire a photo sandbox in the form of a ship with their own hands for the little ones?

Solid canopy can be made of a board, soand plastic, straw, reeds. Hold it could only wooden or metal frame, comprising two to four vertical rack. Sama piece of plate capacity for the sand in such cases is not large - usually site in Q2. m is sufficient for toddlers kids games. Simple skirting height of 30-35 cm would be more convenient if the top edge of the board to nail a narrow smooth all around. It will serve as a bench and do not give sleep sand. The depth of these small boxes, and a removable cover suitable whole - based on an adult's hand.

Cute, reminiscent of the forest and the hut onchicken legs house-arbor-sandbox you get, if you show imagination and garden area under a canopy in the form of the fungus-timbered bungalows Spila. Chain of decks will serve to jump-games. Sit on any of the stumps is always possible - as well as build-pasochki sovochki-molds in a row. Such a platform inside a natural fence of arbitrary configuration turns into a kingdom, if you divide it into several sections. And when the child grows up in a makeshift stumps, forming a barrier, it will be possible to break a flower bed. Sandbox also grow larger you build next.

For the legs need to smooth planed timber or timber 10-12 cm thick - square or round diameter. Since the lower portion dig into the ground by at least one meter, the total length of the beam, the beam will be 3 m, not less.
