This past week was our first visit to the Farmer's Market this year. One of our purchases was fresh beets for you to feast on! After I was done boiling them for you that evening, I thought about saving some of the juice for our next project ~ coloring sand.
This was a simple activity to set up. All we needed was sand, beet juice, a water dropper, and a few pans (plus a tub to protect the carpet on the porch!). We showed you how to squeeze the dropper in the juice, then into the sand and let you have some fun!
This was a fun way to sharpen your fine motor skills, and simple enough to do on your own. We left the sand out on the porch to dry and see what we discover the next day! Maybe we can use this pretty sand in another activity later this week!
