Just got the kids a sand pit
Now - how do I prevent DS from tracking sand through the house?
The hose is fine for now, but it will get too cold for that soon.
What do you do?

Round to the laundry door and into the laundry trough!
I also fill up a shallow bucket (like the ones you use in the kitchen sink) with warm soapy water to wash feet at the back door when it's cold, a trick I learned in day care

Baby powder is good at unsticking sand from bodies too

That stuff hides. Even when you think you have it all you find some more! The only way to get it off is to hose them down

empty pockets, take off shoes and socks, run hand through their hair and wipe their feet before coming in.
it will still end up everywhere though!!

We keep a bannister brush by the back door to brush DS down, and if it is particularly sticky sand, then some baby powder helps.
