DIY Sand Collecting Kits
Update: I recently learned that it’s frowned upon to take sand from Castaway Cay. So this project isn’t the best for a Fish Extender. However, it’s a great fun little project for other seaside vacations.
I took a Disney cruise recently (as part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration) and participated in the Fish Extender gift exchange, so I created these fun little DIY Sand Collecting Kits for the kids in our group.
By creating a label with the location and date really takes this from just a jar to a keepsake. There are some beautiful and creative ways to store sand at home, but this is the best way to collect it and get it home. It’s also a great idea for kids because I refuse to spend $10 on a tiny glass jar of sand that probably won’t even make it home.
Since I made these for a Disney cruise, I added the Mickey head to the top of each container with the back of a paint brush and some black paint. Just three dots is all it takes. Easy Peasy!
Give the kits as gifts to your kids for a cheap souvenir or use as part of your Fish Extender gift.
