                                  Answer:
   
   For traditional Jews, there are some aspects of sandbox play that
   cross into traditionally prohibited activities for Shabbat, such as
   straining, constructing, or digging. Although young children need not
   be prevented from engaging in these activities, parents should not
   encourage them to do it. As the child gets older, they can be taught
   about the prohibited activities.
