Beach Relief

Today we met up with some other home schoolers at Owen Beach for some beach play in the rain... which only lasts so long before a little one is cold and wet. Hollly had a good time on the beach, we'll have to do a lot more of this in upcoming good weather. The kids also made a beach relief art project.

Holly collected some rocks and shells from the beach. Then she filled a container with a bit of sand and created a design in the sand with her finds. After she was happy with her design she then mixed up some Plaster of Paris and covered her little design. Once dry you pop it out and rinse off to expose her design. A wonderful little art project. I think we will be doing a lot more with Plaster of Paris very soon it is really cool and I have a lot left over!
