Last year my husband built my son a sandbox. I’m still in the air about my feelings because G likes to drag the sand all over the yard. Drives me nuts. Anyhow he’s recently gotten more and more interested in playing in the sandbox, but it’s hot and sunny a lot more. I don’t want him getting burnt or super overheated so I purchased this sun shade to go over the sandbox. Yes, using sunscreen is also good, but I think the shade is nice.
Here’s the shade I found. It comes in several different colors. In fairness, it looks a lot like a tarp when you open it and look at it up close so I suppose you could just use a tarp- but it looks a lot nicer once it’s up and the size was really perfect for the size of our sandbox.

We used hooks and rope to hang it from our fence so it hangs over the sandbox. It’s plenty big for the sandbox, plus a little extra so we can put a chair in the shade to sit and watch the kids. I think it looks great, even though it just looks like a tarp when you open the package!
