This next idea is a hit with the kids. You can go to the bulk section of the grocery store to find any kind of small multi-colored candy. These can be chocolate pieces, gummy bears, jelly beans, etc. Once you have bought the candies, take them home and separate then by color (and by type if you have bought more than one type of candy for another sand art jar project). Fill your candy jars with alternating colors. One candy that works particularly well for this candy sand art project is pixie sticks. In case you are unaware of what a pixie stick is, a pixie stick is a candy that is packaged in a paper straw. The candy looks like sand but it is actually granulated and flavored sugar. You can use this candy treat just as you would use sand when making a piece of sand art.
Now that you have a few more ideas of how you can turn sand art into an edible treat, have fun creating these projects on your own. Be creative and think of other treats or recipe ideas that would work as a sand art craft project!
