Recommended Depth

Determining the depth of play sand to fill a sandbox will depend on your child's age. Typically while infants and toddlers are being introduced to play sand they will only need a few inches for sensory stimulation. Adult supervision is strongly recommended to avoid potential ingestion, eye rubbing, etc. As development continues into the preschool and gradeschooler years children will prefer a deeper adventure.

The following table is simply a guideline based on sales trends:
