Designing a Sandscape

  • Full sheet of sandpaper
  • various pieces of yarn, small pom poms, feathers

How to make: 
Let your child unleash their artistic expression and design their own sandpaper artwork using the supplies that "stick" to the sandpaper.

For younger children, talk about different textures (rough sandpaper, soft feather), lengths of materials, colors of materials, shapes, etc. and allow the child to "freely design;" talk to your child about what he/she is creating.

For older children, give them specific designs to create (i.e., a house and tree, a beach scene, a bird)

As an extra activity, find other materials and scraps around your house that "stick" to the snadpaper to add additional color and flair to your design.
