Coloured Magic Sand

It’s so quick and Easy to Make Coloured sand. At my daughters rainbow birthday party the kids thoroughly enjoyed making a wide rage of colours in just a few minutes. I had everything ready to go so I was not running in and out of the house as this always leads to young children losing  interest. We used the coloured sand to make take home magic rainbow party favours in tiny glass bottles that I picked up from the two dollar shop.

STEP 1: With small Ice Cream/yoghurt Containers, plastic pots or Zip Lock up bags divide the sand into each container/or lock up bag.

How To Make Coloured Sand

🔵Put 5 heaped spoons of slightly damp sand into your bag. (Damp sand takes on the colour better than dry sand.)

🔴Add 1 spoon of powder paint.

🔵Seal your Ziplock bag and shake like crazy to thoroughly mix the sand and the paint. The children love doing this bit!
You’ll see the sand has turned a fantastic colour.

🔵Now just leave your bag open or spread the sand out on a tray to dry for a few hours. When the sand is wet the colour may transfer to your hands.

Ideas For Using The Sand

You can make lots of different colours then grab yourself some black cardboard and PVA glue, get the kids to make some swirly designs or a happy face etc with the  glue on the cardboard, then get them to put various coloured sand onto their design. Once done get the kids or maybe a adult to shake off the excess sand so that the sand only covers the design they have done. Let it dry and wella you have a beautiful creation for them to take home and stick up on their wall. They are also great for using as future birthday cards for kids birthday parties they may get invited to.

Kids Party Games are Fun filled and Make Parties a Success

Kids Party Games are Fun filled and Make Parties a Success

Party games are an essential party of a child’s birthday party. They are what essentially create the long lasting memories and fun. There are many different types of kids party games that can be played some can be purchased others are one’s that have been around forever and do not cost anything like “What’s the time mr Wolf” and musical chairs, there are more modern games that parents have thought off and kids love such as water bombs and nerf gun battles, or water pistol battles which is a great party game for summer time. There are also games which can be purchased such as pin the tail on the donkey, jumping sack races, pass the parcel, egg and spoon race, mini golf, duck fishing, pinata’s you name it check out this link for a great range of kids party games which can be purchased online  http://onestopkidspartyshop.com.au/?product_cat=kids-party-gamespinatas

It is a very good idea to have a plan of the how you will map out the party, if the party is going for two hours, you will want to divide this time into arrival, games, eating/cake, saying goodbye handing out the lolly bags. It is good to have a 15minute time frame at the start of the party as there will be guest’s that may be a little bit earlier, right on time or a bit late, I find it is a good idea to set up a craft activity that relates to the party theme for this arrival period.

Once all the kids have arrived introduce your first party game while you are running the party game, have your husband or friend make sure all the party food is brought out to the party tables and have another person preparing the party drinks as the kids will be thirsty after their party game. Once your first party game is over let the kids have some party food and drinks. After they have had some party food then introduce your second game. It may be a pinata, or pin the tail on the donkey or whatever you feel is suitable for the celebration and age of the children.  If the second game is only short you can also do the third game at this stage. Once your 2nd & 3rd party game is over let the kids have some more food and drink and have some free play and enjoy each other company. You may want to do one more party game or play some music and let the kids have a dance or musical status etc than it is time for the cake. Once the cake is done the party should be winding up to a end and you will need to make sure your party bags are on hand for when parents arrive so you can say goodbye and hand out the party bags.  If you find you have some guest’s hanging around and you need to finish the party up the party bags are always a good hint to say ok it is time to go home now!!
