I am build a sand box for my daughter. I have railroad ties for the outside edges, but not sure what kind of plastic/tarp to use for the bottom liner...Any ideas?

I'm not a fan of plastic for sand boxes - it will hold in moisture from rain or from the sprinkler. How about canvas or a canvas tarp? It will allow water to drain so the sand stays nice and dry but it is tightly woven so the sand won't filter through.
