1 Metal Sand Bucket
1 Plastic Liner
Chalk Ink Marker in Chalk White with 6MM Wet-Wipe Tip
Note: I picked up my metal sand bucket for $3.00 at one of those dollar-type of discount stores. I also picked up a white plastic planter liner for $1.00 at the same store that fits down inside the metal bucket.
Wash and thoroughly dry your metal bucket to make sure all debris has been removed. Shake up your Chalk Ink Markers and use them to paint designs on the outside of your bucket. For me, I like the simple look so on one side of my bucket I wrote the word "Beach" and on the other side I wrote the word "Seashells". You can draw pictures, write words or decorate your buckets with squiggle lines, circles...whatever it is that you like.
The Chalk Ink Markers dry within minutes. I made mine on a very warm day and they were completely dry within 5 minutes.
This would also be a great craft project for kids to do over the summer. Just get some metal buckets and a few of the different colored Chalk Ink Markers and let them design their own! (Great birthday party kid's craft project idea too).
