Sand art is a colourful and fun activity where children can select a pre glued picture, reveal a sticky section one or two pieces at a time and cover with coloured sand until the picture is covered in sand.  It is possible to mix colours, make patterns and get very creative. Children will then be able to take their picture memento home! Just register your interest in attending on the day.
