The new Cra-Z-Sand Deluxe Purple Playset from Character Options was bound to be a hit with my two children as they love sand, they love arts & crafts, they love being creative and they love making mess!!
My children’s eyes lit up when they saw the set and they couldn’t wait to play. Fortunately with the recent run of good weather, we took the opportunity to play outside. The set consisted of a pack of purple coloured sand, a sturdy plastic tray to play in (although my children preferred to play on the art mat), a roller and various scrapers to cut and sculpt the sand any way you wish.
The sand is a really pliable texture and can be moulded and shaped anyway you wish. Just as easily as it can be broken up and flows through your fingers, it can be compacted and moulded into a perfect shape.
I have to say my two didn’t need any encouragement with this, they just got on and happily played, loving pressing there fingers into the sand and rolling it into balls etc. The sand is a really satisfying texture that feels soft and is totally non-sticky!
We used some sand moulds we already had to make shapes and they really do turn out perfectly formed with a simple tap and wiggle of the mould. This makes it really satisfying for children to see and feel that they have achieved something quite amazing.
I really liked Cra-Z-Sand and can confirm that my children loved it!! They have already asked if I can get them some different colours to play with. I think this is a fun, enjoyable, tactile play substance that although really isn’t that messy. It’s dry, non sticky and can be brushed off or hoovered up quite easily. The tray and accessories are strong and sturdy making this a good quality set.
We give Cra-Z-Sand a big thumbs up as we all enjoyed it, had lots of fun and loved the texture of it!!
