A coloured sand activity set to create abstract compositions, inspired by the style of Wassily Kandinsky, a great master of abstract art. Designed by illustrator Philip Giordano for Djeco.
Children place the picture in the box, use the tool provided to expose the pre-pasted areas, and sprinkle over the sand following the colour-coded instructions. The free forms thus created seem to be playing with our emotions.
The kit has been designed as a no-mess activity as children work in the box, and so you can collect leftover sand back into the post. It includes 4 illustrated cards (20 x 20 cm), 12 pots of coloured sand, 1 plastic tool, 1 colour step-by-step instruction booklet, which gives information about the artist and the artistic movement they belong to.
Djeco is a family business, created by Véronique Michel-Dalès in 1954. Djeco’s games are attractive, intelligent and fun at the same time. Their games have been translated into every language for children in 60 different countries across the world. They have been hugely successful and won four Oscars for toys in the 1960s. The company name is a reference to the gecko, the lucky lizard.
