So once you’ve selected your location on the
beach, next you want to pick out your area that you’re actually going to build your sandcastle
in. The most ideal place is to find a flat, level part of the sand. You can use a shovel
to dig down to build yourself a nice foundation, or you can also bring in some buckets of water.
And typically what we would do, is pour some of the water. It will actually create a flat
area and it will help out because it also packs the sand down at the same time. And
I, typically, would give yourself a five or six foot area, depending on the size of the
sandcastle you’re going to build. Today, we going to build one, I gave myself about five
feet by five feet in area here to work with.
