Making the perfect sandcastle!

In science today, we wanted to find out how to make the perfect sandcastle! We investigated whether wet sand made better sandcastles than dry sand, and if so, how much water was the best amount. We made 4 sandcastles each; one with no water, one with one cup, one with two cups and one with three cups. We discovered that wet sand makes a more solid sandcastle, but too much water makes the sand stick to the inside of the bucket! In the end, we decided that two or three cups of water mixed into a bucket of sand makes the perfect sandcastle!
