Sandcastles in Panama City Beach

By Lucia Ceydeli

Going to Panama City Beach, Florida to relax on the beach and swim in the Emerald green waters and looking for another fun activity to do? Here’s one; use your imagination and creativity and build the ultimate sandcastle. Shore Thing Beach Rental Supplies and Services has the Sandcastle building kit that will help bring your imagination to life that is fun for all ages.

To make a sandcastle, you need three main ingredients: sand, water, and your imagination. You can use a bucket, a shovel, molds and tools to shape and carve the sand; or you can rent the Sandcastle Building kit and build with ease.

First, choose a spot on the beach that is close to the water but not too wet. You want the sand to be moist but not soggy. Next, dig a hole near your spot and fill it with water. This will be your source of water for wetting the sand. Scoop up some sand and mix it with water in a bucket. You want the sand to be wet enough to stick together, but not too wet that it drips. A good test is to squeeze a handful of sand and see if it holds its shape. Pack the wet sand into a bucket or mold with the bottom cut out. You can use any size or shape of bucket, depending on how big you want your castle to be then flip the bucket over or remove the sandcastle mold carefully. You should have a solid block of sand that you can use as a base for your castle. Repeat steps 3 to 5 until you have enough blocks of sand to build your castle. You can stack them on top of each other or arrange them in different shapes. Use your shovel, molds, or tools to carve and decorate your castle. You can make towers, walls, windows, doors, stairs, bridges, or anything else you can imagine. You can also use shells, rocks, seaweed, or other items you find on the beach to add more details.

Enjoy your sandcastle and take some pictures before the tide comes in and washes it away. Let Shore Thing help create memories and rent the sandcastle building kit to build a Sandcastle with ease and have some fun in the sun!
