Preserve a bit of sand to help you remember the wonderful time you've spent on beaches both near and far!

You will need:

Sand from as many different beaches as possible

Wood glue

Ready made paper tags

String or wire to hang

  1. Write the name of the beach the sand is from on the top of the tag.
  2. Cover the bottom of the tag with a layer of wood glue.
  3. Sprinkle sand on to cover the glue (as if you were working with glitter).
  4. Allow the tag to dry completely and repeat the last step if necessary.
  5. Hang your various tags in a cluster with a bit of wire or string and nails.
  6. Remember to add to your collection each time you visit a new beach!


This is a perfect decor project to do with your kids!
