Drip Sand Castles

Drip castles are a fabulous beach activity for all ages.  Just dig a hole in the sand until you reach water, then pick up some really wet sand out of the hole using your hand and drip it in a pile to create a castle.  They look like sandy stalagmites!

Beach Mermaid

A sandy beach is the perfect canvas for some fun ephemeral land art.  Use seaweed, shells, pebbles and any other bits and pieces you can find on the ground nearby.

For more inspiration, see the work of Land Artists Richard Shillings and Andy Goldsworthy.
