For many people say colloquially sandbox sandbox or sandbox. In most cases, the sand pit a demarcated area bounded by wooden boards or stones. It is usually something built into the ground. Ultimately, the field will then have filled with sand. As a rule, a sandpit, a square shape, but there is also the option to individually create and to vary the shape.
A demarcation of the area is then possible for example with the help of palisades. Sand boxes can even be created as mentioned above, or the decision is in favor of a finished model. This is a prefabricated form mostly from hard plastic material, which can then only be filled with sand. A sandbox is to serve as a playground for children. He is mainly for children who find themselves in an age before enrollment.
The places where sand boxes are to be found primarily, playing fields, playgrounds and, indeed, domestic gardens.
