So this is such a fun craft! This post was featured at Honebear Lane a moth ago and enough time has passed that I can feature it on my own blog now. Don't let the 4TH of July theme scare you, you can turn your sand any color you want. There are so many combos to try and your kids really will have a blast: Here is my post minus the HBL intro:
To kick things off, I'd like to start with something patriotic since the 4Th of July is right around the corner! I love America and I love the 4TH of July! I love celebrating our precious freedom with family and friends and fireworks! Here is a picture of today's activity:
*Zip Loc sandwich bags (one bag per color per child if you want them to mix their own- it is part of the fun)
*Sand from the dolor store (one time I used salt and it works just fine)
*One baby food jar per child ( or whatever glass jar you want to fill.)
*Food coloring. To get a bright red gel food coloring is best. I used the regular liquid food coloring for the blue.
* Small funnel (optional)
Repeat this process with your other color(s).
Using a funnel is optional, but it did make transferring the sand to the baby food jar a little less messy. We filled the bottom third with the blue coloring first.
I hope you enjoyed this sand art project and I hope that you get to try it out with your little ones!
