DIY Sandcastle Kit

 

It’s the end of August, which means it’s time to get in as much of that summer sun as possible before vacation is over and the kids go back to school! For the last few beach days, we suggest this home made sandcastle kit that proves you don’t need to shell out extra money for buckets and pails and cute little plastic beach shovels when you already have on hand.

Here’s a great list of what’s essential in every beach castle kit:

A bucket

  The bottom is cut out because large buckets of sand are difficult to lug around for kids, so this way they can just fill it with wet sand and slide the bucket right off!

Painter Spatulas

Perfect for carving out sand, smoothing out sides, as well as walls and stairs.  

Measuring spoons

For making different size towers in a very convenient package.

Brushes

For getting right into the cracks and crevices that need brushing off.

Funnels

For more funky shapes as well as castle roofs!

Flags

Just for fun, what castle is complete without a flag?
