All you need is a mason jar (the taller the better), clear labels, and sand from the beaches that you visit.
I started with sand from the town where I live. If you don’t live by the beach, just start with your first trip. You may want to start with your honeymoon or another special trip. I printed the location and the date on labels using Microsoft Word and just cut the labels to size. As I visit another beach, I add another layer of sand. I love comparing the color of the sand from different places. I keep this jar on my mantle and enjoy watching it fill up.
Happy Travels 🙂
