Art Activity- Sand Casts

I have a great summer activity for you to do with your kids. The two main things you need is a little plaster of Paris and some sand and water. This idea is something I have done myself with kids, but it was an article by Donna Erickson who has a syndicated column with family fun activities that reminded me of it. I hope you have fun. Click here to get the instructions to download and print.

Material: plaster of Paris, water, paper cup, empty quart-size (500 ml) plastic recycled food container, stick or old spoon, sand (do at the beach or use a home sandbox); optional – Paper clip (for hanger), shallow sand molds like fish, sea animals etc. or other shallow molds , natural objects such as shells, rocks, twigs, bark, driftwood

  1. Make a mold in damp sand, at least 2 inches (5 cm) deep.  If doing this at the beach where there is a tide, make sure you do this where it will be above any high tide line for at least 2 hours.  If the sand is dry you can add some water to it.  You could even put sand into a pie plate or old cake pan.  You can make a free-form design with your hands or use a toy mold. Press the mold into the sand to make the shape then remove the mold.  Note: any connecting areas in your design should be at least 2 inches wide to keep the final plaster project from breaking.
  2. Add any additional details to your design.  Rocks pushed into the sand and left there will create depressions in the finished product when removed after the plaster is dry.  An item pushed into the sand and removed before you pour in the plaster will create a raised design.
  3. Natural objects can be pressed into the sand mold and either left there to be incorporated in the final project, removed (as long as no plaster is on top of the item), or used to create designs and removed as mentioned above.
  4. Pour a cup or two of water into the plastic container and add the powdered plaster according to box directions.  Stir with a stick or old spoon.  The mixture should be smooth and thick like a milkshake.  DON’T over stir. This will cause the mixture to set up too quickly and makes the final product weaker.
  5. Pour the plaster into your sand mold, spreading it evenly to all areas with the stick.  Dispose of any left-over plaster in the garbage NOT a sink or toilet
  6. If you want to have a hanger on your art, poke a paper clip halfway into the plaster at the center top as the plaster thickens. If the project is large you may need to put two paperclips evenly spaced from each other.
  7. Allow the plaster to harden for about 1 ½ hour depending on the size of the mold.  Carefully remove the plaster from the sand.  Any leftover hard plaster should also go in the garbage. Sand will be stuck in the plaster, making it look like you have a item made of sand.
  8. You can wrap your art loosely in newspaper to let it dry completely.  Carefully brush off any loose sand.  Glue on any additional decorations if you wish. 

Note: This activity has been re-written from Donna’s Day Creative Family Fun by Donna Erickson.

. And please make sure you post pictures of your kids having fun doing it or at least their sand casts when they are done. Click here to get the instructions.

  3. cbd on March 16, 2020 at 3:05 am

    I think what you said was very logical. However, what about this?
    what if you added a little content? I am not saying your information isn’t good., but suppose
    you added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Art Activity- Sand Casts – Healthy
    Kid Play is a little plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people
    interested. You might add a video or a related picture or
    two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

  4. cbd on March 16, 2020 at 3:16 am

    Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thank you, However I am going through problems with your RSS.
    I don’t know the reason why I can’t subscribe to it. Is there anybody
    having similar RSS issues? Anyone that knows the answer
    can you kindly respond? Thanx!!

  5. cbd on March 16, 2020 at 3:16 am

    What i don’t realize is actually how you are now
    not really much more smartly-liked than you may be right now.
    You’re so intelligent. You realize thus considerably on the subject of this matter, made
    me in my opinion believe it from numerous varied angles.
    Its like men and women don’t seem to be interested until it
    is something to accomplish with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs nice.
    Always handle it up!

    • Healthy Kid Play on March 17, 2020 at 11:05 pm

      thanks for your three comments. I appreciate the thoughts you shared. I’m curious when you mentioned my “Additional Activity” about Sand Casts as a post title were you referring to the activity title on the Additional Activity page, or did you see a this “post title” somewhere else? I like the idea of creating a more interesting title, for sure. Will have to look into this. My original thoughts for this page was just to provide some extra activities, similar to what can be found in my book, not so much as a “blog”. As for the RSS issue, I have asked GoDaddy about it so hope to find out what that problem is. I have just discovered, having tried to purchase my book, that the website payment page would not accept my payment, so if that is your problem, I’m sorry. Hopefully this can be straightened out soon. once again, thanks for your comments.

    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hello superb blog! Does running a blog like this require a great deal of work?
    I have virtually no knowledge of computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the
    near future. Anyway, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.

    I know this is off topic but I simply wanted to ask.
    Cheers!

    • Healthy Kid Play on June 25, 2020 at 7:50 pm

      Hello. Glad you like my blog/pages. I actually paid GoDaddy to create my website and I also pay for the service of them adding/changing anything on the website. So I don’t do any computer programming myself. I would check with GoDaddy, or whoever you might have a website with currently about the options they have. I believe GoDaddy can also allow you to set up a website with them yourself, and it sounds like it might not be that difficult from the odd advertisement I’ve seen about it. Hope this helps.

    I truly love your site.. Excellent colors & theme.
    Did you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m trying
    to create my own blog and would love to find out where you got this from or just what
    the theme is named. Kudos! adreamoftrains website hosting

    • Elaine Hornung on August 10, 2020 at 7:09 pm

      Glad you like it. The graphics for the heading were designed with the help of a business mentor and created by a graphics artist. The website was put together by a professional service offered by GoDaddy, my domain company. I paid for it to be made, but they do offer a website builder when you purchase a domain from them. More than that I can’t tell you. Sorry.

  46. Skincell Free Trial on August 10, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of
    Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    • Elaine Hornung on August 17, 2020 at 2:50 pm

      I have a service from GoDaddy to work on my website. They use Beaver Builder to design the pages. Hope that helps.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    • Elaine Hornung on August 27, 2020 at 5:57 am

      Hello. Sorry to hear that you’ve had problems with hackers. So far I have not had any problems with hackers. My website is a Godaddy website, so I don’t know if that makes any difference or not.

  74. Mary on August 24, 2020 at 6:52 am

    need any coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

    • Elaine Hornung on August 27, 2020 at 6:08 am

      I pay for a Website Care Service from GoDaddy to put articles on my website (I also paid a GoDaddy service to create the website for me). I find it easier and less time consuming to do it this way. I supposedly can create my own articles with Beaver Builder but I haven’t taken the time to try yet. Sorry I’m not much help to you on your question.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you ought
    to publish more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but
    usually people don’t talk about these subjects. To the next!

    Many thanks!!

  89. Billy on September 6, 2020 at 9:34 am

    great publish, very informative. I ponder why the opposite experts of this sector do not
    realize this. You should proceed your writing. I am sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  90. Burt Coveney on September 7, 2020 at 12:27 am

    Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

    • Elaine Hornung on September 10, 2020 at 8:20 am

      Hello. I’m sorry I don’t know the answer to your question, but I can ask my GoDaddy web care team about it.

  91. artrolux funziona on September 7, 2020 at 7:10 am

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a
    blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem
    is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this during my search for something relating to this.

  92. Frances on September 7, 2020 at 8:32 pm

    Hi there, I found your web site by the use of Google whilst searching for a similar subject, your website came up,

    I don’t understand the reason why I can’t subscribe to it.
    Is there anybody else getting identical RSS problems?
    Anyone who knows the solution can you kindly
    respond? Thanx!!

    e-mail?

  95. Skincell Pro Australia on September 11, 2020 at 11:45 pm

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • Elaine Hornung on September 15, 2020 at 1:21 pm

      Hi. I guess I don’t think of myself as a blogger. I had a lot of information I wanted to share about the importance of fun educational activities for young children so I had it put onto my website. The main work I do on my website is to add new learning activities to one of the pages or possibly some other piece of information I find that I want to pass on. From checking out some other websites who regularly add comments or blogs it seems that it is good to write about subjects that are important to you and may answer others questions or to provide advice to people interested in the same subject as you. If you google blogging you will find lots of articles on blogging. Good luck with your venture.

  96. Gloria on September 14, 2020 at 11:48 am

    I was recommended this website by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about
    my problem. You are wonderful! Thanks!

    • Elaine Hornung on September 15, 2020 at 1:29 pm

      Hi Gloria I can assure you I am not your cousin. I am glad he recommended this website, especially if you were concerned about a child’s learning abilities. It is so important for young children to have some educational activities that are fun for them to do. As you can see from the information on my website, it has been proven to make a big difference in a child’s life even as they get older. I hope you will consider purchasing my book to provide you with many more activities similar to the ones you can find on my “additional activities” page. If not, keep checking for new activities, plus you can often find more on my facebook page (same name: educational kid play).

  97. Brilliance sf on September 18, 2020 at 7:43 am

    I couldn’t refrain from commenting. Very well written!

    • Elaine Hornung on September 18, 2020 at 11:07 am

      Thanks! I hope you found the information useful. And the activities page is updated with new material throughout the year, so be sure to check back. And, sorry I have to say this, the book has even more activities, including science, math, physical games, rhymes and songs, etc. So if you need activities like that to do with kids, check it out.
