Here’s a really simple way to Dye Regular Sand for Craft Projects – using just three ingredients!
What you’ll need –
- Craft or Sandpit Sand (generally light in colour)
- Food colouring
- Antibacterial Gel
- Large Zip Lock Bag
- Baking Paper
Simply pour the required amount of sand into your large Zip Lock Bag, add one teaspoon of food colouring and two teaspoons of Antibacterial Gel, shake and poor onto the baking paper to dry.
*The Antibacterial Gel is optional – I just find it helps the sand to dry faster and helps to ‘lock’ the colour in…it’s obviously something I don’t allow my children to ingest so I supervise them if I’m concerned they will taste some.
