- 4 paper frames for finished art work

4 Easy to Follow Steps When Using the Sand Art Painting Kit
Take out the mess prevent tray. Your child will need this special tray while he paints the images with the colored sand. This tray saves excess sand from falling to the floor, allowing the extra sand to be reused at a later time.
Take off the sticker that covers the design on the painting card. Help your child in carefully peeling it off by showing him first how to do it. The exposed portion reveals the design to be colored. This surface is sticky and actually serves as the adhesive surface for the sand to stick on.
Let your child pick from the 12 bottles of colored sand. He can fill out the design depending on the colors of his choice.
If some colored sand go beyond the edges of a design, carefully tap the edge of the painting card against the surface of the mess prevent tray to collect the excess sand. Again, the excess sand can be saved for future use.
