I did this simple and fun project with my headstart class. They absolutely loved it and the art turned out amazing! For the most part, they all turned out looking like creepy crawlies.
Step 1: Supplies and Getting Started
You will need a piece of paper, glue, colored sand, and a try or something to catch the extra sand.
First, randomly or by design, squeeze glue on your paper.
Step 2: Fold
Fold the paper in half and rub it.
Open the paper up again
Step 3: Sand
Sprinkle sand on the paper over the glue.
Lift and tilt the paper to spread the sand to all the glue areas.
Dump off excess sand.
Step 4: Reveal
Take a look at your work. See if you can spot a bug or other creature.
