Our girls (2 and 5) have a little sandpit type activity table for the back garden. It's like a table they dig and mess around in, build sand castles etc.
It's got a lid on it but UK spiders etc manage to get in there all the time...
I would imagine in Oz, there's some sort of arachnid that likes to hide in sand - before jumping out and attaching itself to your face or something.
Anyway - serious question..... Am I just asking for trouble bringing a sandpit/table?
