Sand Castle Clay

Bring home some sand next visit to the beach, or buy some at the hardware store and make sand sculptures tides and time won’t touch! Make a small sand castle using tiny cups and boxes as forms, or triple the recipe for a king size castle.

What you will need:

2 cups sand

1/3 cup wheat paste (available at your hardware store)

1 cup water

Mix the sand and wheat paste powder together with your hands in a large bowl. Add the water and stir everything up until it has the consistency of clay. Cover the work area with an old shower curtain or newspapers to make clean up easy. Bring out the cookie cutters, paper cups, cans, spoons, forks and knives to sculpt this clay into fabulous creations! Use a piece of plywood or cardboard as a base if you are making a sand castle. This clay may take several days to dry depending upon the humidity in your home.
