To create a sweet sandcastle that no wave will wash away, you will need:
- gold glitter (optional)
- white glue, slightly watered down (or Mod Podge, left as is!)
- a brush
- paper tubes (from toilet paper or paper towel)
- small twigs, and small amounts of coloured paper
Sift the sand to clean out any rocks and twigs. Add optional glitter.
Using scissors, cut tubes into different heights, then cut little "turrets" into the tops.
Cover tube with glue, then roll in sand (didn't manage to photograph this step: picture one mama, and three kids with glue and sand on their hands!).
Cut little triangles out of paper, and glue on twigs.
Set everything aside to dry!
Glue everything together (I used WeldBond); secure with clothespins till it is all dry.
Display artistically for a lovely indoors beach scene!
