ACTÍVA is excited to unveil its newest product - the "no mess" Geometric Shapes Sand Art Kit! Peel, pour, and press your way to a work of art with this great new product! Simply remove the layers from the die cut shape, pour colored sand onto the exposed area, and press into place. Our "no mess" tray catches the excess sand, making clean up a snap!
This glow in the dark Terrarium is perfect for a child's bedroom. But you can make a very different Terrarium with changing the colors of sand and the objects you put inside your Terrarium to co-ordinate it with any room or theme. Learn how to make it on our Craft Projects page.
We have partnered with Guide Central this month to see what kind of projects
they would make using our products and we love what they have created.
The projects include re usable gift tags using PLUS clay, decorative colored
sand ornaments and sweet little ginger bread men jewelry. All 3 projects have
just been added to our craft projects page.
A cute little hide and seek party game project especially for toddlers and younger children.
Hide objects in the colored sand and let them find them! An easy to make fun project with colored sand
Three sisters from Indiana intentionally came together to create unique sandscapes using colored sand from ACTÍVA.
After suffering much loss the sisters decided to create a meaningful memory. Each sister selected a uniquely shaped vase, but used the same colors of sand to create personal sand art. Each vase will be placed conspicuously in their homes as a reminder of each other and how blessed they are. Eventually all three vases will sit side-by-side as a representation of each sister.
Thank you for sharing your story and beautiful sand art.
Sand Art is so popular at the moment and this creative project gives a fun twist to both sand art and a message in a bottle. A new way to send out an invitation to a party! To find out how to make this colored sand art project visit our crafts project page.
