If you use a thick paint instead of water color you can also sprinkle sand directly onto the wet paint and when it dries it will stick.

Looks like a fun week for you, we live too close to the beach to go as little as we do! I know what to do this weekend :)

Do you own most of these books or do you get them from the Library?

For this particular basket, we own the books (mainly because we live by the ocean and when we find good ocean book and like it, I buy it). Most of the time though, we borrow from the library. We do have a lot of books though... I taught first grade for several years and built up a personal collection and my children's grandparents and godparents tend to buy the kids books (which I love!!).
