Make colored sand art by stirring a chalk stick in a bowl of salt. it changes the color. Stir less for light color and more for dark richer color. (I used to do this with salt and food coloring. but the chalk stick idea is brilliant!
(image) What a great idea for the kids / grandkids! Perfect DIY project & recycle those used / broken crayon pieces, too. Would make for a great party favor, gift for Valentine's Day (or other occasions) or gift from Teacher to Students! Love it!
