Well, that order seems to work -  the more "basic" the stuff the closest to the text.

OK, bloody show off!

I had problems getting things to work so had to play with it - Tank said the order was important. So I opened a sand pit to play in...  just in case others needed a playplace as well.

Castles made of sand, fall into the sea, eventually.

Ah, but sand pits are destined to be used, wiped clean if necessary, and used again. Used to be a useful classroom accessory in ancient times, especially in sandy places without much in the way of chalky and slatey rock. Kids could practice their writing without wasting much more than energy and time. The Chinese made much use of them I think!

Sand pit!

 :desert:

I like my sand pits with at least cool drinks available, maybe even a pool!

How about a tumbleweed?

Those are cool.

Is a sandpit the equivalent of sandbox?  Sandbox: That would be the tidy place that sophisticated felines obligingly defecate.

Erm, "sandbox" might be the more correct term... But defecating felines are banned, on risk of acquiring a bung.
