Beach plaster plaque

Beach plaster plaque

This is a wonderful craft project that allows your child to preserve memories in plaster of Paris – and the final cast makes a great gift for grandparents.

What you need:

  • pie tin or other small container
  • small shovel
  • wet sand
  • seashells, driftwood, and other medium-sized beach items
  • plaster of Paris
  • water

Number of players:


Fill your pie pan a third full with wet sand.

Collect shells and other decorative items to put in your cast.

Stick the shells and items into the wet sand in the pie pan. Careful not to bury them in the sand.

Open the plaster of paris package and mix with water according to directions.

Spoon the mixture over the sand and shells until it reaches the rim of the container.

Leave the cast dry for a few days then gently remove from the container and rinse off.
