Drawing in Sand

I have this beautiful purple sand that is great for putting in a tray 
and making marks with our fingers.
That's what I usually do but this time I put it in our sensory bin
with paint brushes (dry).
Using the paint brushes in the tub, instead of a tray, allowed the children
to make big movements without the sand flying out onto the floor.
They were able to make a lot of quick swipes.
Fast enough to clear the bottom.
Using a paint brush gives them another opportunity to hold a 
printing tool.
