At my daughters preschool there is an occasional problem with a local cat using the sandbox... well, like a sandbox. This is sand our kids play in, so we don't care for that. And we obviously don't want to put anything toxic or excessively nasty out there. Anyone have a good cat-be-gone trick?

I use dried up citrus peels and have had fairly good sucess.

I know a preschool that uses orange construction plastic net fencing to cover their large sandbox and it works great, so you don't need a solid one peice cover at all, just something to annoy the cats.

Thank you all for the responses! I spoke with teh Pres of the Co-op yesterday and she says fine... if I am willing to make the effort to do it, no problem. One of the reasons they aren't making a big effort and don't want to buy anything to cover it is that they are hoping to get funds to convert the surface to that rubberized stuff this year. They are willing to rake it clean til then, but heck, if we can do better than that... why not, right?
