Sand Boxes

Love the idea of sandboxes but hate the mess? My mom (oh she is so smart) would get a large, but very shallow Rubbermaid tub and fill it with elbow noodles. We kept the tub inside which was perfect for rainy/cold days. There were tools in the box like cups, large spoons, re-used crystal light containers (with lids) and all sorts of things to play with the noodles. You could have several children sit in the bin at the same time, and others sitting around it. When playtime was over spilled noodles just when back in the bin and stored under furniture. So fun, no mess.
