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!
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.
Make your own edible play sand in vibrant colors- this is a great sensory material for babies who are still in the mouthing stage. While I doubt they will eat much it is nice to not have to worry if they sneak a taste.
