Halloween Art for Kids: Drawing with Colored Sand
Quite a while back the kids and I created some artwork using salt. We had so much fun with it, I decided to change it up a bit and make the activity into a Halloween art project! What I love about this type of project is it really is perfect for any age. It’s also process based so there’s no real end product in mind~ all the fun is in the creating!

I decided to use our front porch since it was nice and shady. (It’s actually been super hot here the past few days- definitely not an autumn feel yet.) And since I was offering this activity as an invitation to create, I made sure to have the bottles ready to go and just drew a few simple lines nearby to inspire the kids.
This was so much fun for both Lucy and Theo. (And actually fun for me too~ I just had to join in!) We had lots of black and orange squiggly lines all over our porch canvas.
Theo was very busy making his infamous sand piles.
Lucy even drew a couple of jack-o-lantern friends.
At some points there was even some cooperative artwork. Lucy would draw something and then encourage Theo to color it in with his sand.
Definitely give this Halloween art activity a try if you are looking for something easy to set up that’s and fun for any age! I think you may even have fun creating too!
