Building sandcastles using a bucket or even a plastic cup are an easy way to have some creative fun.  Coloring those newly created sandcastles makes a summer day even better.  

Creating colors to use to spray or draw in the sand is easy and is part of the fun. 

What you need for making cool sandbox colors:

  1. Color My Worlds Color Fizzy Tablets
  2. White Sandbox Sand.
  3. Clear Plastic Spray Bottle or Squirt Bottle.  Clear bottles work best for making colors. Kids can then see the colors fizz and mix with water.
