When we were searching for a new home last year I was as bit disappointed when my desire for a yard would not be fulfilled. A yard has just become such a desire when you have too little ones who like to spend their time outside running around. While we didn’t end up with a yard we do have a decent sized balcony and have gotten a little creative to make it work for us.
Our balcony is home to a variety of things and while it doesn’t look perfect it keeps the kids happy and therefore it keeps us happy. One of the items that has been entertained this summer has been a sandbox. Now I know what you are thinking a sandbox on a balcony? Yes, it’s there and while I don’t love all the sand it keeps the kids entertained for hours.
The sandbox we have is the Cozy Coupe® Sandbox and when the cover is on it looks just like those little cars that kids love so much. I have to say that is a big selling point with this sandbox – the cover that is. We live in Oregon so while summers are usually pretty dry we do get a good amount of drizzly/rainy days throughout the year so the cover keeps us from having a mud box.
While an afternoon in the sandbox always requires a bath it’s worth it to see these two littles having so much fun. Overall this sandbox has been such a great addition to our small outdoor space. Do you have a small space? How do you make it work with your kids?
Side note these kids love the sandbox with or without sand. How cute is this little monkey?
