How to get shade into the garden?

I've just had to cut down a couple of big trees that shaded our garden (they were affecting boundary walls etc) so we now have no shade at all for our patio and small garden. I have 2 under-3s that adore being outside. Can anyone recommend any (cheapish) awnings or garden features that would give us some shade for sandpit/seating/playing so that I can avoid having to chase after them to replace hats/cream every 5 mins (I'm a little paranoid about too much sun). Thanks very much!

Search shade sail on Ebay. I got one for about £40 but there are all different sizes.
