Transform adult coloring book pages with colored sand paint!


  • ACTÍVA Products' Scenic Sand in colors of your choice
  • Adult coloring book (we used Just Add Color: FOLK ART by Lisa Congdon)
  • Beacon brand Kids Choice Glue
  • Container for mixing
  • Stirring or mixing stick
  • Small paintbrush
  • Optional: picture frame


STEP ONE: Begin by mixing Scenic Sand with glue and a small amount of water.  Mix it until you get a consistency that's not too thick, but not too thin - essentially the consistency of thick paint.

Mixing the sand paint is an important step.

STEP TWO: Using a small paintbrush, apply the sand paint to the coloring book page.  

Instead of coloring adult coloring book pages, paint them with homemade sand paint!

STEP THREE:  Allow to dry fully.  Once dry, place into a picture frame and enjoy the beautiful colors and textures of your adult coloring book sand art painting!
