Colored Sand Craft

My 2yr old and I had fun creating these colorful fish this weekend. Here’s how you can do it to!


What You Need & Where to Get it:

Instructions:

  • Pour small amounts of colored sand into several toddler friendly containers. I used small plastic snack bowls. We had one red, one blue, one yellow and one purple.
  • Allow your child to insert the funnel into the plastic fish and dump the sand into the funnel. A little goes a long way, so as long as there is only a little bit of sand in each container, you’ll be able to create more colorfully layered fish.
  • Tip: We made several fish pretty quickly, but my son still wanted to play, so I just let him dump a fish out and play with the leftover sand. Of course the colors got all mixed up, but he didn’t care and he was entertained for a while, so it was a win for both of us!

Whether it's an idea that comes from a friend, or from a local shop, if I like it, I will try to make it. My mission is to pass that inspiration onto others. I will post new projects or craft tips on a weekly basis. I hope you enjoy taking this crafting journey with me and please, if you find something you'd like to make, but don't have the time or energy to try, send it to and maybe I'll make it my next DABBLE.
