Monday Sand Art

This was one of those rainy day arts and craft projects. Sand art is made for moms with much older children. But, as usual Miss Trinity explorer found it one of my office drawers and kept pleading: "please, open please."
And you know what happened next. I gave in of course. We worked on this together carefully. I'd showed her some tips in how to drop the sand onto the designs and not on the carpet. She did okay except when the tool was stuck, she shook a little too much.
I bought the whole set of sand art several years ago at Costco. They came with the pre-designed sheets, sand, and all the little tools. I had always enjoyed working on it with my sons, because it was a treat to see the end results. For something this easy and fast to make, it's worth it don't you think?
Dad thought it came out great, so we hung it up in the office to admire T's first sand art project.

Thanks for your visit, I am glad you've found your way here.
