Sand Art is an excellent hands-on activity for kids of all ages. Sand crafts are filled with imagination, fun, and accomplishment. The whole family can interact and make imaginative works of art as one of the many activities in the indoor hands-on discovery museum for children. Each child picks a bottle of their choice and cleverly layer colors of sand to fill to the top. They will have their very own keepsake piece of art that they designed to keep forever and be able to remember the fun they had at Nature’s Art Village!
