Fall 2003 Home Video
Ages: 2 & Up
VHS Price: $12.99
The builder and artist in your children - and you - will respond to watching this wonderful video on how make an impressive sand castle. Digging in the sand is always a part of family beach vacations, but after watching this video, someone in the family will be dubbed the next I.M. Pei or Frank Gehry of the shore.

Having the tools that accompany the video are helpful, but just watching, listening to the tips offered and finding a few simple tools - a paint bucket without a bottom, a straw, and maybe a spoon or spatula - will enable you to create an amazing two-towered castle with steps, brickwork and windows.
