This was fun to make today. I am getting ready for next weeks theme and this is one of the activities that we are going to be doing. Can anyone guess what our theme is going to be next week?


  1. Can you buy the sand in small quantities? I've only heard of 50 lb bags.

  2. I got my sand at walmart. It was in the craft section, near the flowers and vases. They have sea shells and different grains of sand. I got the super fine one pound bag, which had about four cups of sand in each. I hope that helps.
