What you'll do

If you're looking for something that a couple, the whole family, or a small group of friends can do together and you're ready to learn some real sand castle techniques then this is the session you'll want to book. Your instructor is scheduled for the full three hours but with younger kids they often finish closer to two, so two to three hours is a good planning guideline. All the equipment for everyone is included so you won't need to bring anything and we'll show how to build castles like a professional as well as how to build with just a couple of buckets. We'll go over stacking (and we'll use multiple forms for lots of sand), hand stacking, towers, windows, doors, walls, stairs, textures, arches, bridges, and a whole bunch of cool little sand tricks. If you have anything else in mind we can also try to make it happen. No artistic experience is necessary!

We provide all the tools and equipment for your lesson.

We were in San Diego for an entire week and this was our favorite activity we did. Kristine made it awesome! She was easy to get along with. She does a great job at explaining things and demonstrating, but still allowing everyone to actively participate and make the same castle yourself. Also, Kristine explained it in a way that I walked away feeling like I was taught enough to at least make a relatively fun sand castle again for my kids. She is very personable. Overall it was an awesome experience and memory!

This was a wonderful experience! Kristine was so professional and making the sand castle was a unique, fun experience. She taught us the basic skills we needed and let us create on our own and helped when needed. I would highly recommend this experience!

This was so fun and was the highlight of our trip to San Diego. Kristine was very personable and was a great teacher. She was well prepared and helped us succeed in our first try. We got countless compliments on our sandcastle that we looked like professionals. That was thanks to Kristine. I left the lesson feeling like I could do it again only own thanks to Kristine's teaching. I would 10/10 recommend this experience.

Thank you Kristine for an unforgettable memory! Our family had an excellent experience! We especially appreciated how you engaged with each of us from our 5 year old granddaughter all the way up to our 62 year old grandpa with limited mobility. You gracefully encouraged us all to participate at various levels of difficulty and you were super kind. We had a wonderful afternoon building a beautiful sandcastle with you. Thank you! We highly recommend this experience to all and we wish you all the best Kristine! :)
