I'm not gonna lie, I'm feeling pretty smug right now. Finally a cool repurposing idea that's NOT "Pinterest-inspired", that I came up with all by myself! My brilliant idea was to turn a kids pup tent (pup tent? pop tent?) into a sandbox. You see, we have a fenced-in pool and lots of concrete in our back yard, so I wanted to spruce things up for baby #3 - a water table, a basketball hoop, maybe a slide or a playhouse, and now a sandbox.
Sandboxes are ridiculously expensive, in my opinion. Even the cheapies at WalMart are around $30, not to mention the cost of the sand. I was looking for an old school hard plastic kiddie pool, or a small inflatable one would have done fine, but then I realized that this tent that my daughter used to use as a clubhouse was just the thing!
And it's actually better than a sandbox because you can zip it closed to keep cat doody out...
And it provides a shady spot to play!
Our tent is roughly 4x5 feet, and we bought 5 bags of sand at WalMart for $3.88 each. And of course we needed a pail and some new shovels to celebrate.
Help with baby pool2009-07-12 07:21:04 by Shar-peiLover
I have one of those hard plastic baby pools. It has a small hole in it. About the size of half a pencil lead.
Any way I can plug it? Duct tape? I thought of trying to melt some plastic and try to "fuse" it shut. Just don't want to spend $ for another one and that's a lot of plastic to throw out!
Thanks for any suggestions

These kinds of arguments, no matter how much they try to confuse you by being obtuse and arguing everything through insinuation, never work unless you buy the premise that men and women will not be with each other unless they're forced to.
