Wordless Wednesday - Sand Art

The Grandparents sent a sand art kit for Princess and I. We had fun making them!
I super-glued the lids on so that she can keep some of them in her room and I dont have to worry about them being accidentally pored out anywhere.

  4. We love sand art. When we was younger we would take table salt and chalk and make our own colored sand.

  7. I remember playing with those as a child. I look forward to playing with them when I get older too.

    Tip: You can make your own coloured sand by grating some coloured chalk into white sugar and mixing it up.

  13. Those are intense! You two really went to town using it all up. I will store this idea away for when I need a fun craft, and thanks to Marilyn for the money-saving tip! (Would just have to keep my child from eating the chalk sugar...lol.)

  14. That looks fun. Sadly The Dudes throw sand, a skill refined by spending every day on our lake beach, and while I can deal with it outdoors I wouldn't be so happy about the idea in the house. They think sand makes excellent explosions for their action figures so I've not entirely curbed the activity. Guess I should get to work on that!

  20. So pretty, what a great gift from the grandparents. Great idea about gluing the tops. I didn't do that when my boys made theirs when they were kids - YIKES, big mistake, I was cleaning up sand for WEEKS in their room. :-)
