Encouraging the kids to play and interact with sand can unleash a world of imagination, while keeping them amused for hours - it’s also very easy to build and can be done in an afternoon. With some sleepers, sand and basic tools from Wickes, plus this helpful step-by-step guide, you can create a fun back garden space for your little ones. Now all you need is a bucket and spade!
