Outdoor Sand Art With Crayola Play Sand
This time of the year we want to have the kids outside as much as possible. The snow had melted and we are ready for the sunshine and fun outdoors. My kids can find activities to do outside on their own most days but sometimes they need a little direction in deciding on how to entertain themselves. That being said, both Jude and Teagan are super creative when it comes to drawing and painting. I decided that for our first spring outdoor day we would try to bring a little art to our sidewalks.
Sure, we could have grabbed our box of sidewalk chalk but I wanted to do something a little out of the box….out of the sandbox!
What is Crayola Play Sand?
Crayola Play Sand has been filling the most popular sandboxes in the neighborhoods. Kids can’t resist the fun bright colors of Crayola Play Sand. Parents love knowing that our safe and non-toxic sand is from a name they’ve trusted since they were kids. Make a big splash with our colorful Play Sand by using it for your arts & crafts projects, sandcastles, sandbox play areas, wedding decor, school projects, fish bowls, terrariums, floral arrangements, kids’ activities and more!
Crayola Play Sand comes in four different colors; pink, purple, blue and green. This high-quality play sand has been washed and coated with safe, non-toxic, durable colors.

Condiment Squeeze Bottles
These directions are so easy you will laugh but I guarantee your kids will play outside for a long time with this fun Outdoor Sand Art activity!
Pick up some of the Crayola Play Sand – we decided on two colors but before the summer is over I am sure we will end up with all four colors.
Grab your funnel – if you do not have one, you can make one out of a piece of paper, watch our video below to see Jude demonstrate this piece.
Take the lid off of the squeeze bottle and using the funnel pour some of the play sand into the bottle.
Place lid on bottle. Repeat as needed depending on how many bottles you need.
Carefully squeeze bottle close to the sidewalk and start drawing!!
Tips We Want To Share
- If the sand has trouble coming out of the squeeze bottle, cut the hole a bit bigger.
- Pink Play Sand can be hard to see – use a little extra when drawing with pink.
- Do not fill bottles to the top – we found that when there was TOO much sand in each bottle it did not work well.
- Spray designs lightly with a spray bottle of water if windy out. Makes sand stick a little to the ground.
This was such a fun activity to do as a family and now we have these bottles of sand sitting in our garage for easy access so the kids can get creative outside whenever they have the time.
Pick up some of the Crayola Play Sand at your local Walmart and start your spring off in color!! Make sure you check out our HOW TO video on creating the best Outdoor Sand Art with Crayola Play Sand. Time to make play time more colorful!
