Getaway to Mexico: Work as Team
Building a castle by yourself during a getaway to Mexico is less fun when compared to working as part of a team. Come up with a plan with your family members and friends and let each one suggest the best way to build a successful castle. Assign a leader if your group is large. When your design is ready, assign each person to do a job and let each use their best judgment and creativity to contribute to building the best sand castle together.
Set Up the Best Spot During the Best Weather
Choose a day where the weather is forecasted as mild, with little wind, sunny skies, and no chance of rain. Building a great sandcastle depends a lot on the weather. Choose an area that is away from other beach goers so you don’t bother them. You will also have a larger space to work with.
Choose the Ideal Sand Texture
Find an area on the beach where fine sand is available. Although coarse sand can be used, finer sands are less complicated to handle. Ensure your sand sticks together by maintaining the sand as wet as possible. This means you need seawater, but you don’t want to stay too close to the waves because your castle might be easily destroyed. Have someone carry water to your area using buckets. You might also find digging a hole and creating a reservoir a helpful idea.
Ensure a Solid Foundation
A strong sand castle depends on a strong foundation. Start your castle with small layers of wet sand and make sure each layer is wet enough before another layer is added so that they remain as compact as possible. Add more compacting force to shade your work of art as needed before you add another layer during your getaway to Mexico.
Be Creative with Your Details
The real fun begins now that you have a solid mound to work with. Shape the sand using edges of objects such as shovels or knives. Different brushes will also come in handy. Don’t forget to keep the sand wet as you work and play. Don’t make narrow shapes which can easily topple over. Put your own mark on your castle by adding beach items like seashells or driftwoods. Enjoy working together as a team and then share the joy of your great experience by sharing your magnificent photos through social media. Instagram, here we come!
