The ladies love the sandbox at their nursery school. This is the floor of their playhouse, which is in the dining room of our house. First Lady lay down on our bed while I was taking her sister to the bathroom and about a cup of sand came out of her shoes onto her father’s side.

So, today, after an appointment, I made this in about a half an hour from scrap wood:

The rule is now that shoes are removed before entry into the house. We’ll see if this reduces the beachy feeling.

It’s based on the one board bench. The length of the top is based on how much space we have, the height is roughly based on the height of their chairs (and cut down because I got the bevel wrong), and it’s a 1×6 board.
