  • Bucket/Trash Can made into a Form *see below

  • Patience

*To make a FORM: Use heavy duty scissors or any kind of saw to cut the bottom off of your bucket. We recommend a 5 Gallon but they can be of any size. When finished, you should have a “tube” which we show you how to use to build a sand tower.

*Spray the form with your choice of lubricant before using. This prevents the sand from sticking!
