A great book for budding sculptors with ideas for creating sand sculptures at three different levels of difficulty. -- splashesintobooks
Sculpting sand is fun for kids of all ages -- especially because the magical, mess-free material is easy to handle and can be used over and over again. This book features guidelines for using sculpting sand to create cute little creatures, including a crab, lizard, caterpillar, and monkey. Author Terry Taylor provides simple instructions and lots of colorful pictures for 18 projects, as well as plenty of helpful tips, including suggestions for tools and techniques.
Projects with one star are the easiest and ideal for beginners. Two-star projects are a little more complex, and the ones with three stars are the most advanced. Kids can build their sculpting expertise with simpler figures such as the clown, octopus, and butterfly and then move on to the frog, dragon, and peacock. Meanwhile, they'll develop skills that will help them express their personal creativity.
