Throwback to my childhood

Did you ever make sand art as a kid? I always had so much fun mixing the colors and making new designs.

I came across this link on Pinterest and thought it would be a great way to kill some time this summer. It didn't take long to be able to put it into action! I got super lucky and found a box of sidewalk chalk on clearance and I had an extra 20% off coupon! I think I paid less than $2 for the box! I also had two small jars that have been hanging around our house for way too long, so this project cost around $3 for us! (I had to buy a new container of salt)

We I decided to take the project outside so I would have to clean up salt from everywhere. Best. Idea. Ever!
Even though it was super bright out!

The boys enjoyed the project. It is hard to keep a two and a half year old occupied long enough to get the salt colored, but he really enjoyed helping me pour it into the jar!

 Kyle's finished product! I knew that horseradish jar would come in handy one day!
