Sand Dough Art
1/8 cup glue
1/4 cup sand
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup flour + more to make a non-sticky dough texture
Decorations: seashell, river stones, buttons, whatever!
*This recipe makes enough for one child's project, double or triple etc. depending on the number of children.
Mix all ingredients together, adding more flour until you have a nice non-sticky dough consistency. Roll your dough out into your desired shape (we made flat circles) and lay onto a piece of waxed paper. Decorate with seashells, river stones, buttons, etc. Let dry for a few days and you have a neat piece of art made by your little!
Heavy Duty Paper
Mix food coloring and sand to make desired colors of sand, set aside. Have your child draw all over the heavy duty paper with glue. Pour on your different colors of sand, wait a few minutes and shake off excess sand. Voila! Pretty 3-D sand painting!!
