After each visit to the ocean, the Butterballs return with at least a bucketful of sea-sand( most of it brought home by 'accident')
We decided to put the sand to good use by creating our own
Material : A sandcastle color-in page, glue, sand and a few ocean-themed stickers.
* Outline the castle with glue (an adults help may be necessarily)
* Sprinkle sand onto the picture (great fine motor skill practise!)
* Dust off excess sand and allow to dry.
* Decorate with stickers or seashells.
The Butterballs loved this simple activity.
"just like sprinkles!' exclaimed Ethan, while sprinkling sand over his picture. ;)
