Build the base for your beach with air dry clay or homemade salt dough.
c.) Palm or coconut tree - create a palm tree out of paper.
d.) Clay details - form colored air dry clay or salt dough into little details like a beach ball, a starfish, a sand bucket, a pair of flip-flops and even some beach-goers.
You can even make a sand castle and other sand sculptures out of uncolored salt dough or air dry clay. Place them on the beach then cover the scuptures with sand to blend in with the sandy beach.
