{Mermaid Party} Part 2 - Sand Art Activity

For this girl only party I thought it would be great to have a craft activity, and what best than Sand Art for a Mermaid Party ?

I got all my Sand Art supplies at Oriental Trading, they have a fantastic selection of containers to fill and the Colorful Craft Sand Assortment was just perfect (we had more than enough sand and the colors were really nice and bright).
I ordered the Under The Sea Sand Art Bottles as the main activity since these containers are quite big, and also some small bottles that were quicker to fill (Dolphin key chains, Heart necklaces and Tropical fish necklaces).

Thanks to the online reviews, I was careful to order extra funnels. You definitely need one funnel per child if you want things to go smoothly !!

I was so pleasantly surprised at how well everybody did with filling their bottles ! Even our youngest guest who's only three managed to do it all on her own. I provided spoons for everybody and then with the funnels it was fairly easy to fill the bottles. They were enough colors to choose from so that nobody had to wait long for a color.
It was just the perfect activity for our group of girls !!

The weather was gorgeous that day so we were able to hold this activity outside, however it is definitely something that can be done inside too. I was expecting it to be messier but in fact it was OK! There was hardly any sand on the floor afterwards...
Just plan to cover your table with a plastic disposable cover and when they are finished, simply fold it and dispose of it.
