Sand painting

Have you ever tried sand painting with your kids? It's so easy, so magical and keeps them busy for a good long hour.

Here's what you do:

Paint a picture with glue.
Sprinkle sand over your picture.
Or pour sand over the picture.
Dip your paper and get rid of all the extra sand.
Admire your creation.
Emma did this together with her cousin. They were both amazed how the picture appears visible when you pour the sand over it. It was so cool to watch them go and do this whole activity all on their own. They are getting so big, *snif*

All you need is glue, paper, paint brushes and some sand. And don't forget to clean your brushes in warm water after you're finished, that way you can use them another time as well.

And remember to take a picture of your cool sand paintings and send them to me so I can share them!
