Step #1

Print and cut out the Q is for quicksand template. We printed the Q on purple construction paper and the quicksand blob on brown construction paper.

Step #2
Fold the quicksand in half and cut a slit in it near the top. Be sure not to cut all the way through the paper.
Step #3
Glue the quicksand towards the bottom of the white paper.
Step #4
Glue the Q on the white paper so that it overlaps the quicksand and goes through the slit in the quicksand.  Part of the Q is hidden and it should give the effect that that the Q is sinking.
Step #5

Label your paper Q is for Quicksand.
