Permanent Sand Castle
Sent in by:
Stephanie of Sharon, MA
What you need for this ZOOMdo:
sawdust -- you can usually find it free at your local hardware store or a lumber yard
wallpaper paste powder -- you can also get this at a hardware store, but not for free
sand castle molds or cans and paper cups
forks, knives and spoons for sculpting and molding
What you do for this ZOOMdo:
Mix 2 cups of saw dust and 1 cup of wallpaper paste powder with your hands in a large bowl.
Add 1 cup of water and stir until it's all mixed together.
Pack the mixture into your mold and carefully take it out.
When you're done, let it dry in a sunny place for a few days.
If you really want it to look like a sand castle, you can decorate it with sea shells or paper flags.
