Homemade Sand/Water Table

To keep the Wee Bairn entertained this summer in our Wee Backyard, I cobbled together a sand and water table out of an old planter and some bins from IKEA.
Now I've got a space between the two bins that won't fit another bin, but looks a little sad.
Any thoughts on what should go there? The gap is about 14 1/2 inches deep and 10 7/8 inches wide.

Awesome Shortcake

I have no pictures to share because we ate these up so fast, but if you have strawberries, they are worth making. Recipe for Shortcake Biscuits 2 cups AP flour 2 T sugar 1 T baking powder 1/2 t salt 8 T cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 1 cup heavy cream Stir dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture until butter is pea sized. Add cream and mix until moist. Kneed gently. Roll out until about 1 inch thick. Cut into biscuits. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Serve with strawberries and whipped cream. Delicious.
