A sand box in Rwanda which we designed ourselves. Yep, it is made of bricks, sand and cement.
Now that should be simple - but it is not! Sand comes from water sources like oceans, lakes and rivers. We have none of these close to our mountain. It was necessary to travel a distance to a small creek and buy bags of dirt called sand here. The sand used in contruction was too coarse.
The kids love to play in the sand! We're also looking at a wading pool which will be constructed along similar lines to the sand box. Not sure how that will work - but kids love to play in water.
