Homemade Sand Castles
The is the perfect centerpiece for a beach themed party. Kids can also help making this project.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup cold water
6 cups moist sand
Sand castle molds of various shapes and sizes
Nautical rope, rocks and seashells
In a saucepan, combine flour and sugar. Gradually add cold water; mix
well. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture thickens to pudding
Place sand in a large pail; stir in flour mixture. When cool to the
touch, mix together with your hands, adding more water if needed so
that sand holds its shape. Firmly pack into molds. Invert on a flat
surface; remove molds.
Let dry completely before handling. Depending on the humidity, this
may take a few days.
To create a centerpiece, weave rope between the sand castles; fill in
with sand, rocks and seashells.
Editor's Note: The sand mixture will keep for weeks when stored in an
airtight container. Yield: 1.
