Colored sand in a bottle

What you need:

-          Small glass bottles with lids, cleaned and dried well

-          Sand

-          Chalk, in a variety of colors

-          Wax paper

-          Funnel

What you do:

1.       Sprinkle some sand on wax paper. Roll over sand with chalk until sand is coated in color. Transfer to plastic container. Repeat process with different colors of chalk, until you have several containers of sand in a variety of colors.

2.       Using funnel, pour one color of sand into your glass bottle. Turn the bottle to the side slightly to get an interesting angle, and then add another color of sand.

3.       Keep adding different colors until the bottle is filled to the very top. (If you leave any air in the bottle, your colors will shift more easily.)

4.       Put lid on tightly.

    I don’t really like the colors they chose, but with my own colors, it would be awesome! If I had enough sand, I could bring it to the beach and dump it! LOL!

    I don’t know what is so special about colored sand. It’s just colored sand… All of you people that like colored sand are just plain strange. There is nothing special about them.
