Colored Sand Collage

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)


What you'll need:

  • Craft knife
  • Colored card stock or construction paper
  • White and clear Con-Tact paper
  • Colored sand (available at craft stores)
  • Salt shakers (we got ours at a dollar store for $1 per pair) or other empty containers
  • Tape

How to make it:

  • Use a craft knife to create a frame by cutting out the center of the card stock, leaving a 1-inch border.
  • Trim the Con-Tact paper so that it's slightly smaller than the frame, then set the Con-Tact paper face down and peel off the backing. Carefully lay the frame over the sticky surface and press it in place.
  • Pour the sand into the salt shakers, then put on the lids and cover some of the holes with tape. Give your child the bottles and let him pour the sand over the sticky surface -- one color at a time or all at once, as he likes. Dump off the extra sand as he fills the space. When he's done, you can set a piece of clear Con-Tact paper over the front to help preserve the design.
