Not too long ago, we needed some colored sand for an art project. So, we decided to try to make our own! This is a easy tutorial in case you would like to make your own colored sand as well! Supplies: food coloring bowls aluminum foil
Seven Colored Earths, Chamarel in Mauritius is a popular sightseeing place where you actually see different layers of earth each of different colors including Red, Brown, Violet, Green, Blue, Purple and Yellow.
I hope this post will get you itching to try some sand art with your children. This has got to be my all time favourite activity so far! Rangoli inspired sand art was such a great avenue to explore transitory and collaborative art and for the children to experiment and develop confidence in their own artistic abilities. Take a peek...I think you'll love, love, love!
