Finger Painting Fun with Sensory Sand Finger Paint

Sensory Sand Finger Paint for Toddlers

Finger painting is always fun!* Kids have permission to cover their hands with paint and slip, slide their fingers through gooey color. Finger paint is the epitome of sensory art and, for young children especially, sensory art is important for development and even helps them learn.

We recently tried a newly-developed kind of finger paint from Discount School Supply called Sensory Sand Finger Paint. It added a whole new layer of sensory fun to the activity!

Sensory Sand Finger Paint for Toddlers 01

Discount School Supply sent us a set of the paints to try out and review along with some finger paint paper and a big ole plastic finger paint tray.

Note :: They no longer carry the sensory sand finger paint or the tray (bummer!), but we often use and love their regular finger paint. It’s the best finger paint out there for kids. And if you like the idea of a tray, you can use a baking sheet or an art mat. Or buy one of these finger paint paper and tray sets.

The finger paints feel as slippery and finger paint-y as any finger paints, but they are also slightly gritty. It sounds like a funny combination, but the kids liked it, and it worked really well. The sand element is very fine—not coarse at all—but you can definitely feel it.

Here’s what we did with our finger paints

Squish, squeeze it…

Swirl and rub it around…

Draw and write in it with a finger…

Mix colors…

Make monoprints…

Drum, drum, drum with it…

Play back and forth with it…

And draw in it with all ten fingers at once…

Using a Finger Painting Tray

We started out using the finger paint paper in the tray, but about half way through the kids switched to painting directly on the tray.

It was the perfect finger painting situation! The paper was okay, but it kind of got in the way of a full-on sensory finger painting extravaganza. It bunched up a little and you had to be a bit more careful.

Painting directly on the tray was freeing.

I generally like to keep things basic and don’t usually go in for “extras,” but boy, I have to say I like that finger paint tray.

We’ve painted directly on the tabletop plenty of times, but it felt different with this tray. It’s extra smooth for one thing. It’s plenty big enough, but the space is defined. And I really liked knowing that I could take it outside and spray it down with a hose when the kids were finished painting. (If it were winter or I lived in an apartment, I’d probably wash it in the shower or maybe the sink.)

Again, the tray we used is no longer available, but you can use a baking dish or art mat or buy one of these finger paint paper and tray combos.

The Finger Paint Art

It is nice to have a painting on paper to display, though. Here’s one of the dried paintings. You can make prints from the paint in the tray (and we did lots of that!) but they have a very different look than the the finger painting that was done directly on paper.

Sensory Sand Finger Paint for Toddlers 47

Here’s a close up of one of the dried paintings so you can see (barely) the grain of the sand from the sensory sand paints.

Again, Discount School Supply no longer sells the Sensory Sand Finger Paint but their regular Colorations-brand Finger Paints are excellent. They also have glitter finger paints which look fun and sparkly.

*Note :: There are some children who don’t like the sensory stimulation of finger painting (or other messy art projects). It is more commonly a phase that a child goes through but it can also be a more ongoing preference. (And, occasionally, it can be the result of a sensory processing disorder.) If the child doesn’t want to touch the finger paint, you can let him paint with a tool (a brush or chopstick, for example) or put some paint in a plastic bag and let him squish it around with his hands. Next time, he may be ready use his hands.

    Wow, what a great idea. Having 4 yr old twins and a 3 yr old we do arts and crafts everyday and to be honest it’s a lot of paper that the kids want to see on display. This idea of the tray just for them to have fun practicing their letters ect and to add the sand, WOW never thought about that! What a great idea:). Just nice that you can let them go wild with just the tray or place paper in the tray if you choose. Contains the mess, which of course is a plus for me with so many young kids. Thanks for sharing!!

    thank you for including the bit about how some kids don’t like finger paint. We tried finger paint a year ago, my older son hated the icky feel (he’s like that) and my younger son, who is very kinestetic, kept licking his hands, FYI: finger paint tastes awful!!! I could not get them cleaned up fast enough. now that the little one is older, I would love to try this. Maybe i will add some sand to the paint I still have and see how it goes. I love the idea of the tray. Im going to spray paint an old cookie sheet glossy white and try that.

    My kids would love that tray (oh, and the paint too). They love mixing paint and smearing it around — it almost never stays on the paper, usually ending up all over their arms and the table. (ps. Did the ice and paint thing today. Food coloring worked great.)

We usually use shaving cream because it’s so creamy-feeling, but I think my kids would really like the sensation of sand in their paint as well. Thanks for the generous offer… fingers crossed. And now to go fingerpaint with my girls…

The crazy part is that my son 3 yr told me the other day when we had our finger paints outside that he wanted to paint sand,lol. So he didnt want to put the sand in the paint so we played a little different but he got to paint his sand:-) I have used disc school supp. before to order supplies will have to go back and check them out. thanks so much for sharing- Jaime @FSPDT

    We love finger painting! We use some very inexpensive trays I found for $1.50 each at the dollar store. The children can select and squeeze their own colors, mix however they want – add other textures if desired (playground sand from Discount School Supply is awesome)and make prints. They even share well…..

    My daughter who is turning 2 years old on Monday would love these! She loves to color & paint. These would of been perfect when I was teaching preschool, I always had aleast one painting activity a week and I only used Discount School Supply paint because they have the best paint. I would love to paint along with my daughter with these :)

    I love all stuff discount school supply! I have two of those trays in my classroom and they are awesome for all things art. I have also had the same experience with them replacing things messed up from shipping. I ordered an easel for my classroom and it came with a big chunk missing from the dry erase side. I called and they sent me an entirely new easel! I used their finger paint to make sensory paint with salt and this would be awesome…I wish I had known about this when I put my order in for this school year :)

    What a great idea to put the sand into the paint – I know my four children have each had little phases of sensory likes & dislikes. I would think this would feel amazing – exfoliating!! And the tray… brilliant!! When my 4 sit down to paint, I quickly run out of places to hang and place pictures to dry. I have lengths twine pinned all around the room to clip pictures up on but eventually have to kill the painting time when there walls, counters and tables are all covered with drying art work!! And honestly, they don’t care too much about all the pictures once they dry – we select a few to keep and a few to share with family & friends. The rest goes into recycling :( The tray would give them more time to just enjoy the experience!!

My home day care is 100% discount school supply and I would not have it any other way. These fingerpaints were not in the catalog but I would love to try them. My kids and the kids who attend day care in my home would love it. We love playing new sensory activities. Thank you artful parent and Discount School Supply you both make my life much easier!!!
