Finding Dory is almost here!
The animated film reunites the friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the true meaning of family along the way. Boys and girls ages 3 to 7 will love this beautifully illustrated hardcover Big Golden Book that’s based on the film.

One of my favorite activities as a kid was to play in the sand on the beach. Enjoy my Beach Sand Bucket Coloring Sheet!
Another Cool Summer Craft-Activity is the Sandy Hand Mosaic.
- Total Time Needed:
- 2-3 Hours
On your next trip to the shore, add plaster of paris to your beach bag so that your kids can preserve their sandy treasures in a handy display.
- Beach treasures, such as shells, rocks, and sea glass (no seaweed)
- 1 1/2 cups plaster of paris in a quart-size resealable bag
- Water (salt water or fresh water)
- Wood (we used driftwood)
- Wood glue
- Have your child press his hand into damp, hard-packed sand, making a 2-inch-deep impression.
- Line the handprint with treasures, taking care to set them lightly without pressing them too deeply into the sand.
- Add 1 cup of water to the bag of plaster of paris. Seal the bag and knead it to combine the two. Carefully pour the wet plaster into the palm of the handprint, covering the inlaid items.
- Use a chopstick to push the plaster into the fingers and thumb. Add more plaster to the palm as needed.
- Set the chopstick in place with 2 inches of one end submerged in the plaster.
- Let the plaster set until it’s hard, at least 30 minutes. To remove the hand, carefully dig out the sand from around the plaster, then slowly lift the hand up by the chopstick handle. Wrap your project in a towel to transport it. For a tabletop display, drill a hole 2 inches deep and a little wider than your chopstick into a piece of wood. Insert the chopstick handle, and secure it with wood glue, if needed.
