Featured BTWEA Business: Kids Sand Art Magic

Kids Sand Art Magic by Joanne Griffin

Organising a child’s party can be stressful enough and if the thought of keeping a group of children entertained fills you with dread, then “Kids Sand Art Magic” is the answer to all your woes. Andrew O’Brien, Owner of “Kids Sand Art Magic” offers a professional reliable and entertaining service. Andrew has more than an entrepreneurial spirit, he has a creative vision.

Kids Sand Art Magic is a new children’s activity which combines two of children’s favourite pastimes – Playing in sand and colouring.

How does it work? – From start to finish the adventure begins as each child picks a picture that they like, each picture has pre cut stickers and then brightly coloured sand is sprinkled on each self adhesive section until the picture is complete.  Kids Sand Art Magic offer your child a magical party where the experience will stay with them long after as once complete, each creation is placed inside a protective package to take home.

Kids Sand Art Magic is ideal for any gathering such as Birthdays, Communions, Weddings, and Corporate Events etc. and is suitable for children aged 3 to 12 years.
