Colorful Craft Sand Assortment
Lots for your money
Plenty of sand for your money. It's more than what I could find at any craft store. Lots of variations of colors also.

This sand was great quality. The only thing lacking is a really good description of how much sand to allow for each bottle. I bought large plastic bottles which was a big mistake. The plastic was very weak and allowed the sand to shift constantly. As I pounded down the sand and filled to the top it seemed completely filled but after the cork was on and the kids squeezed the bottles the sand settled and of course mixed. This set filled approximately 25 of the 48/5821 TROPICAL SAND ART BOTTLES. If I were to do this craft again I would go with the smaller sun shaped bottles on a necklace - my estimate is that this set would do about 80 easily of that size. Hope this helps.

I bought this assortment along with a couple different small bottles and keychain sized containers for the children to fill. I had children at a party from ages 4-10 and they were all crazy for the sand art activities. The quality is great and the colors were vibrant. There were many other activities that day, but this sand was the hit with everyone.

Lots of sand!
I purchased this assortment of Sand for a Girl Scout Day Camp and the colors are vibrant and there is more than I expected. Worked out great and had lots of leftovers to use for future events. My only complaint would be the Sand Containers were all dented, but none open or punctured.

As an art teacher for a pre-school I am always looking for great ideas. This collection of craft sand has a wonderful choice of bright colors. I used this for a sand painting project and the kids loved it.

This is a great assortment of colors and gave us more than enough sand for our 5 dozen pumpkin sand art crafts at our church Fall Fest. The kids had some difficulty deciding which colors to use...they wanted to use them all! Great buy!!

Great collection of sand colors
I bought this sand for filling the sand art heart necklaces for my boys classes for Valentine's Day. There was plenty of sand and great colors. I did not even use half of any of the bottles for filling 24 sand necklaces. Will buy more sand art bottles for more crafts!

Big bottles of colorful sand!
These bottles were much larger than I realized. A little sand surprisingly goes a long way! We purchased assorted sand art bottle necklaces on this site for the party, and they were a hit. I recommend purchasing the 12-pack of tiny funnels if you are using this sand for small bottles. We used the collage trays bought here to catch the sand and reuse, but there is enough sand not to recycle. Colors are super vibrant and fun. I am glad to have such a fun craft for little ones! These will for certain last fun several parties. I need to figure out other uses, because we have so much sand left over!

Perfect for what I needed
I used the sand to fill Coca-Cola bottles that I saved from the summer with the "Share a Coke with a friend'. I found both of my daughters, and nephews names and put the sand in the bottles for a Christmas gift.

When we purchased this we went out on good faith that we had no idea how many people we were going to have attend a fall festival. I thought well we would try it until we ran out. When I opened the box I was so surprised at the size of the containers and the ammount for the cost. We made 50 or so crosses with these and barely made a dent in each color of sand. (Maybe half if that) Everyone loved the variety of colors too. We have enough to do it again! It was fun for all ages.
