Elmer's Sand Art

Here at A.C. Moore, we sometimes debate over creating projects that are nostalgic versus ones that are a new spin on an old favorite. "New spin" won this round. Try this new take on the classic carnival or amusement park attraction sand art for hours of fun! Makes a great birthday party activity too!
