You can dye sand different colors and display it in decorative jars.
Put a handful or two of sand into a plastic bag with a zip-locktop. Add drops of food coloring to achieve desired color. Securelyclose the first bag and then double-bag it in case the first bagtears. Shake the bag to distribute the color. Repeat for a fewdifferent colors. Let the sand dry overnight, or at least for a fewhours. Choose an attractive container to hold your sand. Used jarsor old vases work well. It looks nice to layer the different colorsof sand on top of each other. You could also mix all of the coloredsands together.
