The Life of Jennifer Dawn: Mini Adventure Sandboxes

Mini Adventure Sandboxes

Make Your Own:
I used photo storage boxes, small toys, and sand--all from Hobby Lobby--to make these mini sandboxes.  Each box lid was decorated with stickers and coated with a layer of Mod Podge to secure the stickers to the box.  Lydia Grace had a blast with them and even little Eli got in on the fun!

Oh the possibilities!
Have a happy playtime!


  1. Very cute idea and a lot less of a mess than a huge sandbox! Love it!

  2. Your kids are the cutest and what a fun idea!! Oh how I miss those days - my girls are 12 now!

  3. What a darling idea Jen! So very cute! And your fairy box is perfectly beautiful too! Have a lovely week! Angie xo

  4. This is a really, really great idea! Perfect for a babysitting kit, or an activity during a family gathering. I LOVE the green sand safari- so out of the box for sand! Hey, if you have a second I'd love for you to link up to Sweet Sharing Monday!

  5. Very Sweet. Makes me want to play. I loved sand boxes.

  6. What a fantastic Idea! Will have to remember this for when my bub is a bit older! Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog! I'm already a huge fan of your blog too :) Have a great day!

  7. What a fun idea! My boys would love that. They play in sand quite a bit, but never their own mini boxes. I really like the colored sand. You got it at Hobby Lobby?

    1. Thanks! Yes, all of the supplies came from Hobby Lobby. Don't you just love that place? I went armed with a few gift cards and this idea. :)

  8. Such a cute and fun idea. Thank you for linking to my party!
