Kids Craft-Spring Break Day 1 Sand Painting

It's Spring break here. Having 3 kids under 5 I don't actually have any children in school other than pre-school so our Spring break is not much different than any other week. However my son is home from pre-school this week so we needed some morning crafts to keep the kids from going crazy.

We started the week with an easy craft. Any kid over the age of 3 can do this. Sand Glue Art. All you need is colored sand (Hobby Lobby or Michael's), white liquid glue, paper, plates or other containers to put the sand in, and a spoon.

Pour the sand into the containers keeping the colors separate. Have the kids use the glue to draw on their paper. Sprinkle sand over the glue and pour the remaining sand back into the color coordinated container. Draw again.

The toughest part is teaching the kids to only use one color at a time so the colors don't mix together (unless you want that look). My kids had a blast. They created many pictures and spent over an hour working on their art.
