Delicate Arch is one of the best-known sites in Utah. Making this will be fun. While making the arch, tell the boys some of its history, such as when it was discovered, by whom, and where it can be located. It can be a learning experience for all. Use a popsicle stick to help create the designs in the arch.
SAND ART SEAGULL
Materials: Colored sands or salts: (black, white, yellow, gray)
Board or Cardboard (5x7 or 8x10)
Draw out your design onto the board or cardboard. You’ll be doing sections at a time. Start with the white first. Brush on glue then sprinkle on the sand. Press it into the glue. Shake off excess. Next, do the yellow for the beak and legs. Shake off excess. Use gray just above the ends of side wings. Use the black for eye, the tip of wings, and the outline of Sea Gull. (Note: Utah’s state bird is actually the California Gull. That’s all right because the state tree is the Colorado Blue Spruce.)
