Cleaning up my sons toys I noticed this recently purchased sand toy. It has a lip and can be stacked with others. 1" balls work well with it although no three ball stacks.

Could be a nice routine based on a castle story, or a beach based routine (beach balls?) with a sand castle finish.

How many of these cups do you have? If you have 4, you could pre-pack one with sand and trade out so the sand castle idea. Which I think would play out nicely.

... or have a paper shape insert with sand glued on it and sprayed with darker paint to look wet...

I was thinking paper insert too. it could reside in the cup the whole routine if it was made well enough.

I was two of the cups. Wife got them at Target I think.

As far as a castle routine I was thinking something about Repunzel. Balls on the table could work out a way to get her off the top of the turret. Just patter ideas for anyone to use...

If you have a cat, look under your sofa. I'll bet you will find a hairball or two.

A little loose sand in the base to fall off the top as the cup is lifted before the insert goes in would sell the illusion perfectly

Is that The Magic Castle?

Someone had to say it.
