Sand Squiggles

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • Construction paper
  • White craft glue
  • 1/2 cup of sand
  • 1 small spoon
  • Glitter (optional)

This simple project is very easy and yet creates a beautiful result. Add some glitter to the sand for a special effect.

  1. Show your child how to squeeze the glue bottle to drizzle a design onto the paper. You may need to put your hand over his to guide him. Fine squiggly lines work better than big blobs.
  2. Have your child use the spoon to sprinkle sand all over the picture.
  3. Help your child tilt the paper over a garbage receptacle so that the excess sand falls off. Let the picture dry.
