How to store the Cards and the Sandcastle cutouts after play?
Proper storage is essential to prevent the loss of small game pieces, and the same applies to these sandcastle cutouts.
To keep them safe and organized, I recommend storing them in letter envelopes or pouches.
This method is not only practical but also a great way to maintain organization if you have multiple activities with similar small pieces.
