Concrete Sand Castles
My 6 year old Grandson loves to make sand castles so I thought, why not make permanent ones?
3 simple supplies...a sand castle bucket, sand mix concrete patch mix and sand colored/textured spray paint.
Mix up the concrete patch and fill the bucket.
Wait a few days for it to completely dry and remove the bucket. We did 2 sand castles. My Grandson's bucket was smaller than this one and was so hard to release from the concrete after it dried so I came up with the idea of heating up the bucket. I used a long lighter, the kind you would use to light candles or the fire pit. After only a few quick passes of the lighter over the bucket and it released the concrete sand castle! And bonus...it didn't damage the bucket!
I spray painted the finished sand castle and now it's ready to sit in the "beach" corner of my yard
This was my Grandson's.
I like the detail!
He was pretty proud
