Hello, peoples! What do you like to do when you go to the beach? I’m not a very good swimmer, so I mainly look for cool seashells on the beach.
I think my SF babies like to make sand sculptures!
One afternoon, my son and I were so bored out of our minds, we decided to make some fun sand sculptures for my beach. We made the base shapes using polymer clay.
I made my mermaid tail so that babies can fit right in.
Once the clay hardened, I coated the surface with some glue.
Then I covered it with sand.
My son made a sand castle and a sea turtle.
Once the sand is hardened, I took a brush and drew details on the sculpture with some glue.
Then I sprinkled some sand over the glue.
Finally, I lightly sprinkled lighter colored sand over to mimic the dry sand on the sculpture, and let the whole thing dry.
This way, these sand sculptures are portable and replaceable. It might be a fun little summer project for your kids, too!
