Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PartyPlannerMom3 Easy Fun Project for all ages
These key chains were purchased for an end of the year party for 2nd graders. They were the perfect size and I was very happy with the response we received from the children. We had extras and I used them with my preschoolers who also enjoyed them. Please note, they do not take a lot of sand. I bought way to much. We will be doing sand art until my preschoolers are in college. Also the dolphins come with only 2 funnels so you may want to purchase additional funnels if you have a lot of children working at once. You need the funnels to complete this project.

Kids had a blast with this project.
The sand does settle some so if you're making a specific pattern... Be sure to tap it gently and some sand after adding each new color and fill it completely full

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sophsmom These are a good size for a key chain but the package only comes with one funnel.
I ended up putting superglue on the lids so we would not have sand everywhere. These would be better if they came with sand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jennig It was a hit!
My daughter had a Dolphin themed party for her 8th birthday. Keychains seem to be more popular than necklaces these days so this was a great activity. The quality was average because some of them did not seal completely and one of the links was broken to a keychain. Simple fixes for both but still an annoyance. I found glow-in-the-dark sand at a big-box store that made it even more fun for the girls. My other suggestion would be to make your funnels using cone-shaped paper.

I didnt realize until the box came in the mail that these did not include sand. My mistake for not reading the description - it does not say sand included. However, it does not say sand NOT included either. I guess I just assumed it would have the sand. Also, it only comes with one little funnel. If you have twelve kids doing the craft at once, you may want to purchase a couple extra funnels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Coops Okay, but the other sand art items work better
I bought these for my daughter's birthday. We have done sand art before and she really liked the dolphin idea. I took the other viewers suggestions and crazy glued the tops which seem to work. The only problem I had was that you have to be really diligent when filling these because the dolpins top may get filled but it may not be dense throughout the whole dolphin which will cause the sand to eventually mix. We know to fill it all the way to the top, but there is an area on the top of the dolphin that can remain empty that could be overlooked. So, when you fill them, make sure the sand is dense throughout the entire dolphin and not just up to where you put the sand in.

Picture shows sand in the dolphin. I just assumed it came with the sand. Oh well, couldn't use them since I got them in the mail on the day of the party and I didn't have the sand. Product description should specify "Sand Sold Separately" !!!! Also, they are junky feeling.
