A while ago my husband built my kids a sandbox. I’m still in the air about my feelings because the kids drag the sand all over the yard. Drives me nuts. But the kids LOVE the sandbox and spend a lot of time in it. During the spring, it’s fairly well shaded during the hours we’re outside, but as summer progresses the area gets a lot more sun. We use sunscreen, but I really wanted to add a little extra shade in that area to keep it from being super hot for them. This was a super easy project that I highly recommend!
Supplies for a Sandbox Shade
- Coolaro Kool Kolors Party Shade Sail: This is the shade I used. 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.
