It was Saturday and V had to work. So, I brought Little Edison to the library at Compass Point together with my helper. After our reading session, we went down to Basement One for some kiddy rides.
We walked pass the children’s art and craft corner and Little Edison was showing some interest. I asked the lady if there is any art or craft suitable for a 3-year-old like him. She recommended the sand art to me.
So, we picked a picture to start. It’s actually quite easy but requires a lot of patience. All he needs to do is to peel off a die-cut piece of paper to expose the adhesive beneath, pour colored sand onto the adhesive until the artwork is completed.
I help him to peel off the die-cut piece of paper. He decides on the colors. It wasn’t too crowded that day, so he got a whole table and variety of colours to do the sand art all by himself.
It took us slightly more than half an hour to complete the art work. His concentration and interest really amazed me. And I really like that sense of satisfaction on his face after he completed his art work.
This is his first sand art! I proudly display it in my kitchen today.
