Painting with Sand

Heavenly Father paints beautiful scenes with the shifting dunes of desert sand. You can paint with sand, too. You will need: a sheet of paper, a bottle of glue, and sand of several colors. You can find colored sand in nature, or you can mix sand with powdered poster paint for a brighter look.

  1. Cover the paper with glue.

  2. Carefully drizzle one color of sand after another onto the glue to form a picture or design. Or you can squeeze glue onto the paper in pictures or patterns, then pour sand over the glue.

  3. Let the painting dry, then pour off any loose sand.
