Playdate | Sand Art


Have you heard of SAND ART?

I haven’t until this playdate. Deborah had learnt this from her Girl Guides seniors some many years ago, and I think all kids will enjoy customising their very own bottle of colourful sand art.

All you need are:

  1. Salt
  2. Coloured chalks
  3. A4 paper
  4. Glass bottles

You can read more about the activity on her blog site.

Here, I share with you some pictures we took while the kids play and eat!

While the girls worked on their sand art, Arnold played with his tool box on his mat (but not for long). He will eventually move to their table and make his presence known. Gee…

The girls at work. First, Deborah gave them each a piece of plain paper. On which, she poured a generous amount of salt on it.

They were supposed to colour the salt with their chalks.

See, I told you! Arnold wouldn’t stay on his mat for long. He has a strong need to interact with people! Unfortunately, he’s too young to participate. I wouldn’t want him eating the salt!!! Eww….

Sonia was very serious in her work. She refused help from me or anyone at all. Of course we had salt everywhere, on the table, on the floor, and on their clothes, but they are toddlers! I don’t expect them to work neatly. I expect mess, I expect fun, I expect creativity, I expect freestyle! Kids will be kids and I won’t want it any other way.

After colouring their salt…

They pour them in a glass container…

Sonia was using a toothpick to push the sand downwards from the side of the glass bottle to create “waves”. Making the “art piece” look more interesting!

The above were done by Heidi and Tiffany.

And these were done by Sonia (of course with my help).

After the whole “sand affair”, the girls continued with drawing and doodling with heaps of colour markers. Arnold wanted to join them but… I don’t want him to be eating the markers! Maybe next time. We will do a one-on-one session, just Arnold and I.

Heidi was very proud of her artwork. She draw a card for her mama and post to take a picture with it. Tiffany meimei saw that and mimicked her sister (see next picture).
