Where is the cheapest place for me to get some play sand for the garden?

B and Q are slightly cheaper than Toys R Us. Just check it is play sand and not the building stuff smile

Toys R Us were £4.99 a bag, and I needed 4 bags - so £20. That seems a lot!

Tesco had 10kg bags at 2 for £4 last week.

NB do not fill the sandpit

so long as you can't see the bottom that is fine

then top up as it mysteriously disappears (mostly into the bath IME)

definitely don't get builder's sand by accident - it's bloody sharp! That's what we had to play with, in an old sink...
ee, times were 'ard back then....
