While strolling through Micheal's, my kids and I came across colored sand in the clearance section. I bought a couple of bottles to see if they were ready for sand art. My one year old daughter did okay(with some very close supervision) but she didn't really enjoy it. My three year old son however, enjoyed it so much that we had to get several more bottles before they sold out. I had an idea, with grandparent's day just around the corner(September 11th), I could decorate the sand filled bottles and give them as gifts.
