For Henry's birthday I was planning on getting them a sandbox. While searching online I found plans for a sandbox that were way better (and cheaper) than any plastic one I found. The top of the box folds into seats...so cool! So with a little paint and some of Anthony's labor we made Henry's birthday present. I think it turned out great and the boys seem to love it, because they have played in it almost every day since we filled it with sand!
Sand and sticks...it doesn't get much better!
