Print out this free coloring page depicting a pail and shovel at the ocean shore. A “drippy” sand castle in the background and small starfish and sand dollar also decorate the page.

If you have never made a drippy sand castle, I’ll tell you that it’s lots of fun. I believe it works best on beaches where the sand is very fine and they must be made near the water where there is a good mix for some nice dripping action. They are easy to make in Florida.
Grab a bunch of wet sand and let is slowly drip out of your hand through your fingers. As each blog hits it will “melt” into a rounded blob and dry into its shape almost immediately making a drip. Make the drips smaller as you add height to the tower and see how high you can build it.
This blog shows some drippy sand castles.
