We have a bunch of colored water in spray bottles left over from Mikey’s Messy Party. During the party we used these spray bottles for spray art on a fabric sheet
But I was thinking we have to be able to use them for something else. So I thought of our sand table
The kids first just sprayed the sand to create splashes of color and then they started thinking of other things they could do.
Kaia asked for a sand mold. So I gave her a cookie cutter she scooped sand inside and then poured the red water on top.
It worked (although) I should have made the red a bit darker
at the top left you can see the plain sand so you can see that there is a slight difference
She also used the water to make tunnels in the sand
My favorite thoguh was her idea to place the cookie cutter down in the sand and to try and spray only inside3 the cookie cutter
It worked GREAT! you could also place an object down and make a resist image by spraying all around it.
Mikey decided that the blue sand looked like ice cream so he asked for the ice cream scooper
And made some delicious ice cream cups!
