My friend Amy sent this to me that came in her son's Highlights magazine. I completely forgot about this magazine but totally remember this as a kid. Oh the memories (the ones I can remember in my ripe ol' age of blah blah). The pictures posted below are the directions along with the supplies needed, but I'll list them below as well.
Sand, food coloring, glue, cardboard and small jars with lids. Amy said that she used those small starbucks frapuccino bottles and used sand from her son's sandbox.
1.Pour sand into jars. Add a few drops of food coloring.
2. Put lid on and shake until sand is colored.
3. Put glue onto carboard, using the glue as your drawing utensil.
4. Sprinkle sand on the glue.
5. Wait 15 minutes, gently shake the cardboard and you've made sand art!
