I am trying to glue sand onto a wood block, but the sand won't stay. Any ideas how to maybe create an almost cement out of the sand so it can be molded to wood, harden, and still appear to be sand?

Just a thought - use sand colored paint and mix the sand with it! I have used white paint and mixed sand with it to paint my "snowmen" out of concrete blocks - except the sand darkens it, so I have to spray a coat of white over it - but looks like snow!
I lived in Tucson for three years. Once a summer, I got to drive back to Salem for a month. One year, I went to the beach down at Coos Bay. I took a bucket and scooper, and collected about 2 lbs of sand, shells, driftwood, and pretty rocks.
Does anybody know how to make colored sand used in sand art, the kind you fill bottles with?
As an elementary teacher, I often took the whitest sand which I could buy. Then I mixed food coloring with sand in a baggie. After that I dried the sand on a metal tray in the oven at 225 degrees. Stir a couple of times to make sure it all completely dries.
