Sand Mosaics
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

This beach project is a sort of natural version of glitter designs -- except unlike glitter, your supply of sand is practically inexhaustible.

What you'll need

  • Scissors
  • Black construction paper
  • Shoe box lid
  • White glue
  • Sand
  • Assorted seashells

How to make it

  1. Sand Mosaics

    Cut a sheet of construction paper so that it fits inside the box lid -- this will be the portable canvas.

  2. To make a picture, draw with the tip of the glue bottle, then sprinkle on loose sand.

  3. Once the sand is dry, shake off the excess by gently tapping the side of the lid.

  4. For added detail, glue on shells, pebbles, sea glass or any other not-too-aromatic finds.
