Did you know that kids aren’t the only creatures highly attracted to sandboxes? When your sandbox is not in use, whether it is during the day or overnight, it is important to use a sandbox covers to protect the quality of the sand. An uncovered sandbox is an invitation to any number of different animals and insects who would love to spend time in the sand. Animals such as outdoor cats, raccoons, chipmunks, and squirrels, among others, like to dig in the sand, bury their treasures, and leave behind droppings that contaminate the sand and make it entirely unhealthy for children.
Additionally, uncovered sandboxes tend to collect all kinds of debris, such as dead leaves, twigs and sticks, rocks and pebbles, and the occasional piece of trash or broken glass. Any of this debris can pose a danger to children who like to bury their hands and feet deep into sand and may not see what may be hiding below the surface.
A sandbox cover is an easy and inexpensive way to keep sand unavailable to animals and free from potentially harmful debris.
