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!!

This our first time purchasing craft sand at OTC. My daughters enjoy filling green glass coca-cola bottles with sand. So, they want a large variety of colors. I was pleasantly surprised to receive our OTC sand... they were not only bright but were glittery, too. We made 6 full beautiful bottles and we have so much more sand left. Thanks, OTC.

I had this activity at my daughters 4th birthday, the kids had a blast! so much fun, a bit messy, I made sure we did the activity outside. The sand layered well, and the kids we're all happy with their creations. The sand does set after a while, so I had to add more sand and tap the bottles slightly, so the sand would be more compact and prevent the layers from mixing. the bottles that OTC sell are perfect, no worries of glass breaking...and the funnels work well, I did not find them too small. I purchased small Dixie cups to scoop the sand into their funnels.

lots of sand
Great value for the amount of sand you get! 12 jars of assorted colors was enough to fill almost 70 bottles. I purchased 12 Cupcake Necklaces, 12 Tropical Fish Necklaces, 24 Butterfly bottles (which are pretty big) and 24 Airplane bottles (which are pretty big). The cupcake necklaces were also a good size. I had enough sand to fill all those bottles and that accounted for LOTS of spillage and I even had some sand left over. I was afraid it wouldn't be enough but there was more than enough.

The bottles are not quite as large as I thought they would be. It would be helpful if the measurement was in volume and not weight. But the colors are nice and deep. The kids enjoyed this very much.
