Salty Sand.

We bagged some sand from our trip to Coney Island and this is what we came up with.

To brighten up the dirty Coney Island sand we added some salt.

We poured salt on top of the sand inside the jar and then swirled it around like a drink.

We ended up really liking this cool sweeping sand art effect!

"By the seaside, hoo, hoo, by the beautiful sea!"
