An easy craft with incredible results
There is no need to use messy glue, because the adhesive is already on the pre-cut cards. You just start by peeling an area of the picture and then pour coloured sand, which will stick to the card. Peel the next area, pour a different colour and repeat the process until the card is completely coloured. The end result is a beautiful and brightly coloured picture that is unique and will last forever. Sandart works well so that even young children can do it without getting frustrated. We recommend Sandart for ages 4 & up. Younger children can participate too, though they may need help with lifting the paper, but enjoy peeling & colouring.
See the “How to” page for an illustration of how to do SandArt.
SandArt is easy enough for the younger ones and also challenging enough for adults. Once you start mixing colours and experiment with different techniques, the possibilities are endless. Not only is SandArt fun but it is educational too.
