Digging dog?   Create a sandbox just for his digging!  I like the idea of the short wall surrounding to keep the sand IN the sandbox!

What better way to keep your kids occupied for hours – oh the pain when you accidentally jab your toe with the spade though!

Leave plastic animals in a bin outside (near the garden, next to the sandbox, next to a patch of trees, etc) -- when children go outside to play, they can use them and let their imaginations run wild! My recommendation: the children should only play with these toys outside -- that way, they'll look forward to playing outside -- make sure they run around too ;)  GG
