Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPliquidlandscape

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This weekend’s tag was #WHPliquidlandscape, which asked participants to take creative landscape photos that feature water. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

DIY Sand Trays: Click the links below to view directions on how to create each of the pictured sand trays (numbered from left to right, top to bottom).

  1. Wooden Sand Tray: The standard dimensions of a sand tray are 19 x 28 x 3 inches.  You can cheaply and easily build your own.
  2. Double Sand Tray: This is a more complicated tray to make, using wood and trays.  Double trays are great so you can have one side for dry sand and the other for wet.
  3. Plastic Bin: You can use any large plastic bin.  They are easy to transport and keep sand in very well.  The one pictured is from Michael’s Crafts (tip: download their iphone ap for a 40% 1 item coupon)
  4. Sand “Desk”: You can screw desk legs directly into a sand tray.
  5. Wooden Base: You can make a simple raised stand from 3 boards and then screw a sand container to it (other plans here).  
  6. Drawer Tray: You can easily turn a removable drawer in your office into a sand tray.
  7. Table Top Tray: You can paint an old table and then just screw a tray to the top.
  8. Raised Wooden Sand Tray: It is slightly more complicated, but here are directions for making a raised wooden tray with wheels and bottom storage.
  9. Sliding Lid Bench Sand Tray: This is quite expensive but someone crafty could build this on their own.  It requires a lot of space and a permanent office but it looks really cool and can serve as a table if you also see adults.  The lid slides out to create 2 benches on either side of the tray.
  10. Sand “Dish”: Large plastic flower pot dishes are cheap and make decent trays if you do not need to transport them.
