Sand Art - Great for kids parties or if you need to entertain the children at a special event.
Colourful creative hand s on entertainment for all ages make sand pictures to take home
If you’re looking for a fun and exciting way to entertain the kids then sand art is the one for you
Suitable for children of all ages and those with disabilities and special needs also makes a great sensory tool for people on the autistic spectrum
The pre-cut nature of the pictures and the stickiness of the sand mean that it is very difficult for the activity to "go wrong" giving everyone the ability to make fabulous flawless colourful pictures using their creativeness. The pictures cards are pre-adhesive; also importantly it means that the children can make their pictures in stages over whatever duration of time suits them.  This is great for parties where there is food and other entertainment on offer.
We specialise in birthdays, weddings, craft fairs, fetes, and fun days. Also workshops for schools, nurseries, brownies etc. in fact any event where children need entertaining.
