Cinnamon in the Sandbox--- Did anyone else know this? Now that its getting warmer, the kids are going to want to play in the sandbox. Cinnamon in the Sandbox keeps the bugs away! I knew cinnamon repelled ants. but I never thought of this!
Tip of the Day: Keep bugs out of your kids' sandbox this summer with a simple, all-natural bug repellant: cinnamon! Just mix a cup of cinnamon in with the sand and it will repel ants, centipedes, flies, and even neighborhood cats. Really works great!
Love the idea of creating a natural "sand box". Let the children play: just add sand for really natural DIY sand box. I would just use a tarp to cover this play spaces when not in use to keep the cats out. Just add cinnamon to keep the ants out.
