Sand tables are the best thing ever. As somebody said, buy supermarket sand as it's cheaper than ELC etc. I got some for about a pound at the end of last summer and stuck it in the shed til now. Our table has a lid that's hinged at each end so opens out as flaps giving extra space to build sand castles, etc. Got it in Argos but can't remember what brand it is. They're fun for all ages too - if you have an 8 year old round they'll be straight into the sand with the toddlers!

I've just read this back and I sound like I'm on commission selling sand tables! They are good though :D

We have a tiny garden but manage to squeeze in a few things: wooden play house (beanbag and books inside plus a table, chair and drawing stuff), a swing, toddler swingball, toddler croquet, a small trampoline, and a black painted wall for chalk drawing. Oh, sand table, sand pit with lid, and a space hopper too. We have a tiny slide that she's outgrown now but is still used so she can climb the fence to talk to next door's granddaughter!
