    good rainy day project! I take projects, buy the necessary items to make them and then wrap them in an old newspaper. My son gets to open a package on a rainy day and we do whatever project is inside.

    It's been cold, windy, and rainy here for over a week. I think it's adult sandcastle time! Great project for kids. This mix, the recipe so it can be recreated, and some molds would make a great gift. And a small bucket would be a great gift bag.

    This sand castle is nothing short of spectacular! When I lived in the California Bay Area, I went to the beach frequently. I miss it terribly. I used to spend hours, making sand sculptures, and sand castles! How did you get the sandy look and texture out of just cornstarch , cream of tartar and water? Wouldn't it just be pretty much white? Not that that would be bad...but if you really wanted to get that beige look what would you add? I'm an older adult and I'm in! I wanna play too!!!

    This would be good for school projects also! Along with the modeling clay recipe!

    This would make a great gift for my nieces/nephews! Add some food color and you can have beautiful color castles!

    I am going to do this but use the pink & blue colored sands for baby shower gifts. This way they can do the hand and footprints to frame.

    This might also be a good therapy tool for kids with Rheumatoid Arthritis or or other motor challenges. If you let them use it while it's still warm, it heats up the joints, muscles and tendons so they will work better. Plus it sounds fun--I'm going to try it with my grandkids.
