Sand Art

One great thing about family camp at Camp Sunshine is the huge Arts and Crafts building.  It is enormous.  And it is not my house, so it can get really messy and that's OK.  One craft which I cannot comprehend doing at my house which the children love is sand art.  It is so simple, yet they love it. 
They basically poured different colored sand out of mustard containers into smaller containers (sometimes using the miniature funnels, sometimes not) attached to strings, to be worn as necklaces.  I wish I had a picture of Sabrina wearing all four necklaces she made.  She was so proud of them.

This is one of the activities they returned to several times:
