Sand and Water Play
Make a sand and water table out of PVC pipe. I love how you can easily switch out the tubs for either sand or water play. We built this last year, and it has gotten a ton of use.
Build your own mud kitchen from The Empowered Educator. My preschoolers would love this.
While you’re at it, make some mud kitchen play food – out of rocks. Super clever! Fun idea from Munchkins and Moms.
Build a sandbox with a lid that folds open to become seats on either side. Woodworking plans from Ana White. (She has a whole site full of easy-to-follow woodworking plans!)
Create a water wall for water play! Love this idea from Little Bins for Little Hands.
Use PVC pipe and a small pump to build a water fountain ramp toy.
