#* Never place the sandbox in the ocean because '''''sandboxes cannot float''''', but why would you place your sandbox in the ocean?  All of the sand will be washed away if you build your sandbox in the ocean. If you want a mini-pool, maybe making a sandbox isn't for you. You can build it in the park (if you have checked that it's OK to do so), or in your yard - the classic option.

#Decide on the size and height of the sandbox and consider who will be playing in it. If it is in a public area, you will want to make it larger, to allow the greater number of users. If it is in a place where wild animals are present, take care, for they may mess with it. If there are wild animals, make sure to make the walls high and put a ladder on for the kids. If this is a playground for kids, make sure the edges are safe and keep your work-space clean and blocked off if it takes several days to complete.[[Image:Sandbox Step 2.jpg|center]]

#*Give the children enough space. Plan at least 1m³ for each 2 children. Read on for some formulas you can use to estimate the area A of the sandbox.
  +
#**If the sandbox has a rectangle shape, calculate: <math>A = l*w</math> (l is length, w is width)
  +
#**If it has an elliptical shape, calculate: <math>A = \pi * \frac{l}{2} * \frac{w}{2}</math>. If it is a circle, you can simply use: <math>A \pi (\frac{r}{2})^2</math>, where <math>r</math> is the radius.
  +
#**If it is a regular n-sided polygon, use the formula: <math>A = \frac{n}{2} * r^2 * sin(\frac{2\pi}{n})</math>, where the radius r has been measured from one corner of the planned sandbox to the centre of the sandbox.
 
#Decide where to place the sandbox. Do not place your sandbox under a tree. Dead trees and huge craters make the sandbox unattractive. Don't place it on a beach, as that will be pointless with the over-abundance of sand (unless it’s one of those ‘rock beaches’ but then the ground would be uneven anyway) and don't place it inside a mall or house (as that would make a humongous mess to clean up!).[[Image:Sandbox Step 3.jpg|center]]

# Ask an experienced sandbox builder to help you or simply enlist the help of your buddies. Give them an inspirational speech like, "Today we leave behind a legacy, blah, blah, blah". If they seem suitably impressed, refrain from telling them what you're really doing. [[Image:Sandbox Step 4.jpg|center]]
