sand art

Parents and carers love our sand art party packs and our range to choose from. Everything you need is included and the kids get to take home their own unique piece of art.

To create a sand art “masterpiece” you start with a specially designed laser-cut card and the coloured sand. Simply remove the cover paper on the laser-cut card to expose the sticky section. Little sand artists cover the sticky bits with coloured sand of their choice – using the spoons and sticks provided. Ta-dah – an amazing sand art creation!
