Mini Sand Art Bottle Key Chains
Fun to create
I have ordered these for 2 years now. My 6th grade kids love them. They create all different designs. I have different colored sand & I bought the funnels which I use over & over again. The secret to these is once they fill, check them before the kids put the lids on. I make sure they tap so sand settles. Refill, retap & refill as needed. I remove all lids before I hand out-If lid is down in bottle I just use pin to bring up-no big deal

The kids loved this activity! it was the first time I had tried them - will definitely repeat!
This was our 1st attempt at sand bottles and the kids LOVED them! Will do this again in the future!

A little too small
These plastic key chain bottles were just a little too small and "cheap" for a craft for 13 year-old girls. They had fun, but the end product wasn't really as cool as a glass bottle that was a little bigger would have been. The caps seem like they should be tighter, so I worry that some of the girls' bottles are going to open and spill. This size would probably be better for younger girls (or boys).

Cheap blastic bottles. Ball chains are poorly attached with zip ties. Rubber tops are ill-fitting, don't use this as a sand art keychain unless you'd enjoy a pocket or handbag full of sand.

Great but could be a little more solid
We used these as a craft for my daughter's Ariel themed birthday party. The kids loved it! The corks were shipped separately, (I know that was a major concern for others) so there wasn't an issue there. The only thing we had a problem with was that the plastic seemed to be a bit thin so the bottles would collapse when you were trying to put the cap on. This may be due to the fact that we didn't fill them the whole way as we were putting both sand and shells in them. Everyone at the party thought they were a great idea and a huge success!

Needs to be re-designed
The bottles are shipped with the corks inside. When removing them to fill with sand they fall down inside the bottle and are not retrievable. This left us with about 25% of the bottles not being able to be used. Aside from that, they are cute and worked for what we needed. I'd also recommend gluing the cork in
