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.
- yellow construction paper
- blue paint
- shallow trays
- small crab cutout
- Put blue paint into shallow trays and mix sand with the paint.
- 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.
- Cut a little crab or other sea creature and glue on your beach scene.
