Have you ever seen anything prettier? This DIY Colored Sand is made with just simple beach sand! It’s the perfect DIY for a day at the beach or anytime.
This DIY Colored Sand would make the prettiest sandcastle or you could use it in a Terrarium too! This would make the most magical sand box and is super kid friendly.
The good news is you don’t need many supplies to make this DIY Colored Sand. All you need are a few simple ingredients. We used beach sand but you could also use sand from the hardware store. Both work great!
Plastic Bags (Or Any Container for Mixing)
First, fill you bag plastic bag about halfway full with sand. Next add a small amount of color. Measurements will vary depending on how bright and vivid you want your color to be. You can always start with a small amount and add more.
Be careful to keep the dye away from your hands and your clothes! Although food dye will eventually wear away, if you get it on your skin it will stain for several days. On clothing it may be permanent. BTW – we have lots of other DIYs with food color like this or like this.
Next add a small amount of water to your bag of sand and dye – just enough to moisten both the sand and dye.
Now, seal the bag and move and swish the sand around until it’s thoroughly blended. You can blend colors, you can order cool colors of food dye online and make a unique palette as pretty as this!
If you need to add more color, you can! If your color is too bright, just add a bit more sand. If you need it to blend more thoroughly try adding a bit more water. This DIY is super adaptable so have fun with it!
This DIY Colored Sand is all about making a gorgeous palette! So get creative with your colors and make something gorgeous!
