Want to give your child the sensory satisfaction of playing in the sand without all the mess? Get a Kinetic Sand Set and let your child loose with this combination of sand and putty.
The Kinetic Sand Folding Sand Box comes with two pounds of sand that sticks together. That might sound like a lot of sand, but it provides only enough to build a couple walls or towers. The sand acts as a solid when you apply pressure, but will also ooze when gently handled. This sand kit comes with two tools for smoothing and shaping, as well as several molds to set the scene. Each mold features a pattern block on the top for decorating as well.
The entire set fits inside the plastic suitcase, which unfolds to act as a play surface. No need for a sensory table or outdoor area to enjoy this sand. Since it sticks together, it scatters much less and in bigger chunks, making cleanup up a breeze. Once kids finish, simply close the case and store it until the next time. The castle theme enchants any kid with visions of their own kingdom.
The Rock Crusher Set works great for kids who enjoy construction. The sand has a thicker consistency with a bit more texture. The set includes a truck with a claw, a rock mold, a driver figurine, and a rock crusher machine for even more fun. All of it comes inside a printed cardboard box that opens to provide the play surface. Much like the plastic case, the box closes up to keep sand and toys safely inside once kids finish playing.
No matter which set you choose, you can’t go wrong with this kinetic sand.
