Give your backyard a twist with one of these homemade sandboxes

When I was a kid, I distinctly remember playing for hours in the sandbox with my brother and sister. My dad had built it for my older brother before me and my sister came along, but it eventually became all of our favorite hangout 🙂

Now that me and my family have moved into a bigger house, I finally have the backyard a space for an amazing DIY sandbox. My husband and I looked and looked for the perfect sandbox to make, and finally settled on one similar to #12 on this list. It’s not a project that can be done in one day, but we are having a blast making it! If you’re interested on working on your own homemade sandbox, check out some of the fantastic ideas below.
