Super Simple Sand Painting

Take a little bit of the beach home with you! 
Create a beautiful painting using sand, glue, and paint.

Craft Project Directions:
To make this craft project you will need sand, powdered tempera paint, glue, paper to paint on, several bowls to mix everything together, spoons, and brushes.

To begin, make sure your sand is nice and clean. Pour some of your sand into a small bowl and add colored tempera powder to the bowl.

Make sure you choose a color you want to paint with. Now stir these two things together until they are well mixed. Create many different colors in many different bowls. Set aside.

 Now select a piece of paper on which to create your super sand painting. Think about what type of design, pattern, or picture you would like to create.

Next take your brush and cover it with glue. Brush the glue onto the paper and then sprinkle the sand over the glue spot you created on the paper.

Blow or brush the excess sand back into the bowl of sand you created earlier. Repeat this process again and again until you have just the picture you want. Let your creation dry and place it someplace special.

Enjoy Crafting!
