Can one DIY during a beach vacation? Affirmative! If you brought a marker and regular crayons you are set to go to make this lovely game/storytime aid. My stepdaughter Katie once again came up with a brilliant idea. With closed eyes, one person will draw a stone and start a story based on the image on the stone. The next person will then draw a stone and continue the story based on their stone…etc., etc. She played this with her little brother while I documented their creation and they have been storytelling every day since.

This beautiful — and super sturdy — sandbox is a great addition to any backyard or cottage. The designer of this “cadillac of sandboxes,” the amazing Carla of Small + Friendly, has shared the instructions on her blog so any handy DIY mom or dad can build the same awesome sandbox for their own back yard.
With a hinged, retractable lid-turned-deck, as well as plenty of space for a few kids to build and dig, this sandbox easily buys you more time to sip a beverage or read a magazine while the kids play.
