Simple beach crafts are a great way to keep children entertained, especially on a rainy day when kids can get bored. This project requires only a few materials and is easy for even the smallest hands, as long as you are there to supervise. You'll need colored card or stiff paper, glue, and sand. Using the glue like a paintbrush, have your kids paint a picture on the card. When they're ready, pour sand over the picture, preferably on a flat surface. Wait about one minute and then gently shake off the excess sand. The sand will cling to the glued areas. Leave to dry, flat, for an hour or more. Try using colored sand, sprinkling glitter or small shells for variety, or accent the project with small shells, stones, and other beach finds.
