Ok.  Let's do this summer art project.

Grab a cereal box and doodle a castle with Sharpie markers.   Cut your castle out.

Dab glue onto your castle with a paint brush.  Then, pour and glue on some sand.  (We added some glitter to make it look pretty.)

Next, make your background by doing some scrape art.  Drop big globs of tempera paint onto a sheet of paper.  Then, use a piece of cardboard to scrape across the paper.

Once you're done, glue everything on and add extra details like sand or stickers or  pom poms.
