So, I devised a plan. I got sand, typed up a few words in outline format. Then, I saw the puffy paint. I decided to play around. I made sand and puffy paint sight words. There was one slight issue-how to keep the sand on permanently. I thought of a few ideas but since I was refinishing a piece of furniture I had varnish out. Bingo! Varnish will adhere to that sand FOR*EVER!
I got this all purpose varnish at Hobby Lobby for another project a few months ago. At first it stained the cardstock but it dried beautifully. I applied a generous amount and they turned out great. Here they are.
I need to make more but this was my first attempt and I am pleased.
This photo shows the depth of the sand which is essential.
Here are the puffy paint words.
My daughter loves the paint words and my son loves the sand words. I am sure your students will love one or the other or both, toom and, hopefully, learn their sight words in the process!
