Next time you take a trip to the beach, why not use your bucket to collect beach debris and make a sand picture with what you find?

Method
Enjoy walking along the beach collecting interesting beach debris in a bucket e.g. shells, leaves, seeds, seaweed, drift wood etc. Look for interesting shapes, colours and textures
Draw a shape in the sand to make your frame. You could also make a more defined frame by arranging several pieces of driftwood.

We chose to draw a square frame


Have fun sorting through your collection and making a secret garden by arranging your items in the frame. You can lay items flat or make a 3D effect by sticking in pieces vertically.
