Winter Sand Art


Winter Carnival Activity - Christmas Themed Sand Art


Supplies for Holiday Carnival Activity - Sand Art:
Craft Sand in assorted colors
Sand Art Bottles - one for each user - see winter themes below
2 Long Tables with Tableclothes to cover each table 
Shallow Containers for each color of sand (clear looks best)
Buckets for holding sand art containers in the middle of the table (as shown above)
Mini Funnels 
Plastic Spoons for scooping the sand

Carnival Booth Supplies: Sand Art Booth 
Before your carnival - set up your tables with the shallow containers each filled with a different colored sand and place the sand art bottles in containers on the tables.

In a perfect world, place each color of sand about 1 1/2 or more feet apart so the children need to move infront of the different colors to prevent the accidental mixture of the colors when they are too close together on the table.

(Note: The picture above shows the colored play sand too close together - we had to remind children not to mix colors - so have more tables to space out the sand!)

How to Play: 
Children choose a sand art container and place one funnel in the top. Next, each child will begin filling their container with sand of thier choice! If the bottle they choose is a sand art necklace, have the children put the necklace top on while they fill the bottle, it helps to prevent them from loosing the top! :)

This booth almost runs itself! Volunteers help children remove the lids to each sand art bottle and help them to make sure the sand is in the container to the very top so the design stays in place when the leave the table!

The sand art booth is a super fun activity for ourdoors or indoors too! Belive it or not, it is not really that messy! Of course, it is NOT recommended for inside a home, or on a school's wood gym floor, but we have seen this done in school cafeteria's with no issues that a good broom and dust pan could not handle. Just remember to have plenty of tables with the sand spread out so the kids keep most of the sand on the tables!

 Once each child has thier sand art bottle filled, have vollunteers tell children to "tap on the side of your bottle" to help settle the sand and they will have more room to add another color!
