Summertime Fun: Crayola Play Sand Review & Giveaway


Crayola comes out with the coolest stuff! Their new play sand is the newest summertime product that adds a bit of color to your boring sandbox. We tried a sample of the different colored sands (pink, blue, purple, and green) last week and had a blast.

The sand is really soft and fine, just like the sand you would find at a tropical beach. My main concern was the color coming off on clothing, but it didn't (yeah!).

Although the sand is sold in easy carry 20# bags, we just had a smaller sample that we used to pour into a bottle. My son had a blast making his own sand bottle and the colors were really nice together (although they become a mish-mash of colors if you shake the bottle). So, even if you don't own a sandbox - this would be great for crafting!

I think it would be cool to see how it looks when mixed with regular sand in a sandbox. I imagine it would be like playing in a fantasy sandbox - how cool!

You can find the Crayola Play Sand bags at Wal-mart and retail for about $6.47. However, Crayola wants to give one of my readers enough sand to fill their own sandbox (about 8 - 10, 20# bags)!
