Illuminated Sand Art

We found an interesting way to create art with our light table - illuminated sand creations!

Cadence drew a picture of a butterfly on a clear garbage bag using a permanent marker.

Once she was happy with her design, we placed the picture on the light table. Slowly and carefully she scooped and poured coloured sand onto the butterfly.

The result - a colourful picture that appeared to glow as the light from the table shone through it. Beautiful!

After we admired the picture we collected the sand in a bag and are saving it for our tactile bins - it will be fun to use with scoops and funnels!
