Indoor Sand Castle Stuff

Bring the beach inside even in the winter.

2 cups clean, fine sand
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup water

Mix all ingredients together in an old pan
over a low heat (200 degrees F.)
Remove when the mixture firms.

A solid base is the key to making
awesome sand sculptures.
If you are very ambitious, use a large
plastic garbage can with the end cut out.
Pack the sand down firmly and use a lot of water.
Let it set for a few minutes, then lift off the can.
Now you can use various utensils
to carve out your creation.
