Create a beachy scene this summer using sand and glue! This landscape-inspired art activity is a great accompaniment to a special summer vacation or even just a trip to the beach one day. Use sand from a fun beach trip or buy colored craft sand at an art supply store to create a seascape that brings the beach into your home.
This activity will help to teach your second grader learn about basic art terms such as perspective, foreground, middle ground, background, and horizon line. This project also encourages creative thinking, problem solving skills, and aesthetic development.
