Zen Garden Craft

Here is an unusual craft idea for a Japanese theme (it also makes a great gift for someone who needs a calming influence!)

Patterns are made in the sand to represent rippling water. A great gift for Father's Day or Teacher's Day.

Materials: Sand tray (such as chocolate box), fine sand, forks, pebbles

1. Place the sand in the tray
2. Fill your box halfway to the rim with sand.
3. Use your fork to draw a pattern in the sand.
4. Arrange your pebbles.
