KidKraft Sandboxes: The Ultimate Sandbox for Kids

Get your backyard ready for outdoor fun with a large sandbox that will give your kids plenty of room to play and create. Choose from a variety of contemporary styles of kids’ sandboxes - from a boat sandbox and a sandbox with a canopy to a sandbox with seating or a cabana - to find the one that's best suited for your child and outdoor space. Then, fill the box up with sand and let the playtime begin!

Sandboxes with Covers

A sandbox with a cover provides numerous benefits, such as preserving the quality of the sandbox, sand, and toys from weather. For example, in colder seasons, a covered sandbox protects from the wind and rain when the sandbox isn’t in use. Sandboxes with covers can also be more aesthetically pleasing in your backyard since they can be used to store buckets, shovels, and other toys.

Wooden Sandboxes

A wooden sandbox is a more durable and sturdy option than plastic versions that children will enjoy for years to come. The sturdy material will keep the play sand right where it belongs – in the box and out of the grass! Wooden sandboxes are also generally more visually appealing than plastic sandboxes and provide a natural look and feel.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What are the benefits of playing in a sandbox?
  • Playing in a sandbox encourages kids to use their imagination and creativity, as well as develop social skills. Sensory play provides many benefits, including helping children develop their fine motor skills and improve their hand-eye coordination.

  • Does play sand need to be covered?
  • While it’s not necessary to cover play sand, it’s generally recommended to prevent contamination, keep sand dry, reduce fading from UV, prevent animal waste, and enhance safety.

  • What's the difference between play sand and regular sand?
  • Play sand for kids contains a much finer and smaller particle size than regular sand. It makes building sandcastles and playing with trucks much easier and more enjoyable because of its ability to stick together better. This sand is safe to use and is the best sand for sandboxes and sand tables.

    Regular sand, on the other hand, is coarser and made of slightly larger particles. Since it’s designed to be used for building, construction, and landscaping, it’s sharp and is therefore not ideal for playing.

  • How often should play sand be changed?
  • Play sand should be replaced every year or, if necessary, more frequently. Factors such as seasonal changes, frequency of use, and quality of sand will determine how often it will need to be changed. For these reasons, regularly inspecting the sand is suggested to identify when it needs to be changed.
