Every Thanksgiving Day, families and friends gather on the beautiful sandy beach of Kiawah Island Golf Resort to engage in some good old-fashioned competition. Could this event be the annual Turkey Trot on Kiawah Island? It could be, but not this time. I am referring to what follows the Turkey Trot every year: The Family Thanksgiving Sand Sculpting Competition. The only thing that could make that Thanksgiving dinner better is a sweet victory for the entire family. The race has been run, and now it’s time to get those hands dirty or, in this case, sandy. We have compiled a list of Sand Sculpting 101 tips to prepare you for this year’s competition of sandy masterpieces.
It’s the start to the holiday season. Kiawah Island Golf Resort prepares for the grand feast and all the fixings! If you and your family are looking for new Thanksgiving traditions, look no further. We ensure you this island has something for everyone.

First of all, what is frit painting? Frit is crushed up pieces of glass. It comes in the same type and same colors of the regular glass we use in Kiawah’s Turtles’ Nest Art Studio. There are three types of frit: fine, medium and course. The course frit is too chunky for the detail in frit painting, but is occasionally used in regular glass fusing. The fine frit is almost a powder. It is good for a background or for added small details. The medium frit is perfect for frit painting! To frit paint, you outline a design of your choice with GlassLine pen. GlassLine pens are another beneficial type of glass. It comes in a container that you can attach a few different size caps to which allows you to vary the thickness of your outline. So how do you frit paint? We have put together a guide of essential frit painting tips to get you started.

Runners want to hear you! In between sips of your oh-so-delicious and festive Peppermint Latte, give them a shout out! Our runners’ bibs are personalized so we encourage you to personalize your encouragement. All it takes is a quick “Atta boy Steve!” or “Way to go, Martha!” as they run by to give them an extra pep in their step. After all, they are going to be taking quite a few thousand steps on race day… Make one of them a little brighter!
