Earlier this week I read about homemade sand clay in the beautiful blog Childhood Magic: A Homeschooling Photo Journal. You make clay from sand at the beach, water, and cornstarch (the full recipe is on Family Fun's website in their article How to ... Create a Sand Castle That Lasts). It looked so fun, and I decided that the next time we went to the beach we would get some sand so we could try making sand clay creations. We picked some up at Burfoot Beach near Olympia, WA, when we visited there yesterday, and here are our creations!
