This school year we are focusing on how letters are formed. As a fun way to practice, I made Xander this sand box.
It was super simple. I just started with a photobox and some colored sand.
To get about the height I wanted, I put the lid on and placed a ruler just under. Then I traced under the ruler.
I got to try out my sklls with a utility knife, but was able to get the box down to size without incident.
I put a white paper in the bottom for contrast, and poured in some sand. However, I quickly realized I had WAY too much sand. I slowly removed it until I had an amount the would cover the bottom, but still show up when I wrote in it with my finger.
Tadah! There's my sand box. A rubber band holds the lid securely, but it will still live on a high shelf!
