Ever since visiting the Motoi Yamamoto salt exhibit at our local museum last year, we’ve been crazy for creating with salt and sand! (Recently we used salt as the main sensory material of our winter small world.)
With spring quickly approaching we decided to do some sand drawings outside using spring colors! (This post contains affiliate links.)

Now you’re ready to draw!
We drew some Easter eggs with different designs and colors.
Lucy was very proud of her spring flower!
