Bring summer fun indoors with these adorable sandpaper sand castles!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 2nd grade / 3 - 7 years

You will need:

Before you begin:

Print and cut out the shapes templates and trace the pieces onto sheets of sandpaper. For younger students, you may also want to cut out the sandpaper pieces ahead of time.


  1. Give each student a sheet of blue construction paper or card stock to use as the background.
  2. Have students cut out the traced shapes they want to use from the sandpaper, and position the shapes on the blue background to create a sand castle.
  3. Note: You may also want to challenge students to deviate from the predetermined shapes and cut out their own designs from the sandpaper.
  4. Encourage students to glue the sandpaper shapes to the background to complete their sand castles.
  5. Have each student add the “Sand Castles” poem to the picture.
  6. Post their creations on a summer- or beach-themed bulletin board!
