Since we had all that fun making colored sand it is time to get a little artsy with it! We tried our hand at making Sand Art. A super simple activity and it actually was not as messy as I expected. Plus, I love the art they created!
What You Need:
- Something to write with (pencil, crayon, etc.)
- Colored Sand
- Cue tips or popsicle stick for glue spreading
- A plate
*Note: It worked best for us to do a picture together first and then let them make there own
Step 1: Draw a general idea of what you want to create on paper. Place the paper on a tray or pan with sides to keep the sand contained. We used a lid for my 9×13 pans.
Step 2: Squirt some glue on a certain section of the paper and then spread it out with the cue tip. We did it a section at a time because the glue seemed to dry quickly.
Step 3: Then take a spoonful of sand and pour it over the glue covered area. You may need to pat it a little with your fingers to make sure the sand sticks well.
Step 5: Enjoy a lovely piece of work!
Step 6: Now let your helpers create their own Masterpieces…
The loved being able to draw what they wanted
I think they turned out great!
