So, the next thing we’re going to build is
I’m going to build a cone. So, what I’ve done here is dug a hole, and placed a bunch of
loose sand in it, and I filled a few buckets of water up, came up and saturated the sand,
so I have good working sand right next to the site where I’m building my sandcastle.
To begin with our foundation, I’m going to build starting with the inside out. We’ll
use scoops of the sand we just got ready. Here is where I’m going to use the technique
of hand forming. I’m going to build a cone and using your hand forming technique, keeping
the base wider than the top. Once you build your base, you can begin to add on the top
of it by using just hand forming, packing piles of sand on the sides. You also want
to remember to keep pouring water on it because the wetter it is, the more compact the sand
will be and it will stick together and make it easier to build. So, here we have our foundation
that we started with. I began building from the center point of my area and I’ve designed
my cone shape that is going to be the central part of the sandcastle.
