Sugar art is just like sand art, but better because you can eat it! This easy and creative project uses colored sugar and shaped plastic containers. Just layer the colored sugar to make your own edible designs.
- Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- Small plastic sand art bottles
- Multiple bowls of colored sugar
- Small plastic funnels + spoons
- Creating sugar art is a simple, creative way for children of all ages to enjoy the beauty of sparkling color. Most craft stores sell various sizes of plastic bottles and small plastic funnels. Online sand art suppliers also offer empty bottle necklaces in lots of fun shapes - everything from cell phones to teddy bears.
- When it’s creative assembly time, line up your bowls of sugar, funnels and let the children pick their favorite shape of bottle. Hand out the funnels, and let them start layering colors.
- When the layering is complete and their containers are full to the very top, seal the plastic container with its lid. Watch as your children share, compare and trade their sweet creations.
- If you decide to eat your sugar art, sprinkle it on your favorite sugar cookie before baking, on your cereal in the morning, or pour some out on a plate and dip fresh cut strawberries in it.
