How to use Sandbox Story

Sandbox Story is a great finger painting activity.

You may either draw with your fingers on the Sandbox Story surface sand background (thin, even layer of sand), or create picture by pouring sand on the cleaned glass plate.

To create new picture, either cover the existing drawing with sand from the sand trays or clean the glass plate and renew the sand background in a thin even layer.

To achieve better contrast of pictures we recommend reducing the light in the surrounding premises.


You can use different shapes, items and cookie cutters (for example, gingerbread cookie cutters, cubes, puzzles, combs) to create interesting illustrations and drawings on Sandbox Story.

Create your own sand animation!

Sand animation - it is the name given to a style of live performance art, where an artist creates a series of images using sand, a process which is achieved by applying sand to a surface and then rendering images by drawing lines and figures in the sand with one's hands.

Different results and paintings can be achieved with different fineness and color of sand.

Express your imagination!
