Cinder Block Sand Box

I have had an excess of cinder blocks around my house and I was getting really sick of them piled up everywhere.  I decided that I will start making them into things.  The first thing that we put together was a sand box for our children.  Let me tell you, they absolutely LOVE it! 
Our yard is an obvious working project, but it is getting better.  My children loved making this sand box especially because on one side they planted some plants inside the cinder blocks.  They love to water the plants and so far they have been really cautious about squishing them.
This morning we even went and bought some sand toys at Walmart and they have been playing in it all morning!  It has been really nice!
Now I am excited to get the rest of the yard going!!

How handy are you? This is a great idea, so big and so pretty with the little flowers surrounding it. So great to see the little ones playing in the sand and creating and building and just being kids:) Thank you for sharing at Freedom Fridays. Have a fun week watching you kiddos play:)

That is a very nice way to repurpose something that has few (known) uses! Love that idea and I am sure your kids do, too!
Thanks for linking up this week!
