Messy Art Club: Sand Art

  • Program Goals
    • Younger kids - encourage motor development (pouring and stirring), create patterns
    • All ages - encourage creativity and experiment with different art techniques and supplies
    • Provide a flexible program open to all ages and skill levels
    • 40 children and adults in attendance
  • Attendance: 58
  • Connections/Feedback: Talked to parents about making art with kids - it's ok for them to make something too!
  • Notes for the future
    • 7-31-14: Small tubs of sand are perfect - a few left over and enough for everybody.
    • 9-26-13: Used leftover colored sand and shells. Kids really like to just mix it all up, so it's not worth buying the sand in bulk.
Project: Sand Art (with shells)

  • Sand, shells
  • Thick paper - recycled cardstock and/or construction paper, paper plates, pencils
  • Plastic tubs, spoons (dixie cups b/c someone took a bunch of my spoons)
  • Glue sticks, glue
