Cool Sand Jars

Easy-to-make sand jars!

These jar-within-a-jar containers make great holders for pens and pencils.

Strain some white beach sand to remove any pebbles or debris.

Divide the sand into several bowls. Leave one bowlful white and color the others by stirring in paprika powder, instant coffee, dried mustard, or cinnamon.

Take a straight-sided jar or glass that is smaller in height and diameter than the jar you will fill with sand.

Place a layer of white sand in the bottom of the bigger jar and center the smaller jar inside so that the rims of the two are level.

Trickle a layer of sand into the gap between the two jars. Alternate layers of colored and white sand to make a pattern, filling the bigger jar to the top edge of the smaller jar.

That's it!
