This sand jar project lets your kids turn ordinary sand into colorful artwork. If you think sand should stay at the beach, think again!
What You'll Need:
- Small dishes
- Powdered poster paints
- Clean glass jar with lid
- Acrylic paints
How to Make Sand Jars:
Step 1: Cover your work surface with newspaper. Mix small amounts of sand with different colors of powdered poster paints in small dishes.
Step 2: Carefully pour one color at a time into a glass jar. Tilt the jar and add about 1/2 inch of one color of sand. Tilt the glass the other way and add another 1/2 inch of sand using a different color. Keep tilting the glass and alternating colors until the jar is full.
Step 3: Decorate the lid of the jar with acrylic paints. When the paint is dry, place the lid on the jar. Be careful not to shake your sand picture.
