Maintenance tips for KidKraft Backyard Sandbox

Use a cloth to lay down beneath the sandbox since it doesn’t come with a floor. You can also put a wooden panel underneath if you have one. This would give more protection to the equipment and will also keep it clean.

In any extreme weather conditions, cover the sandbox with a plastic cover to protect the wood from decaying to make the equipment last longer.
