Summer Beach Sand Fingerpainting Craft

Pin It



Here's a cute summer beach scene craft made with sand paint. I really love the idea of mixing sand with paint. It gives it such a neat texture for fingerpainting. Some kids may not like it at first, but they usually come around after a little bit. Sand is usually colored yellow for a beach, but for this craft, I really wanted to make blue sand like the water washing up on the beach.

Materials:

  • yellow construction paper
  • sand
  • blue paint
  • shallow trays
  • small crab cutout
  • glue

Directions:

  1. Put blue paint into shallow trays and mix sand with the paint.
  2. Put a big glob of sandy paint on the yellow construction paper and let kids spread it around with their fingers. Leave a strip of yellow at the top for the beach. Allow to dry.
  3. Cut a little crab or other sea creature and glue on your beach scene.
