Rainbow Craft Sand Assortment
Exactly what I was looking for.
I saw this sand on their website and it got great reviews. I was working on a project with some kids and thought I would need more. I had already bought some at another store for about $5 and it wasn't even 1/4 to what I received from Oriental Trading. I wish I had known at the time of their sand. PERFECT! It was just what i wanted so I bought 2 thinking it always looks like your getting more than you do. Boy was I mistaken! 1 box would of been plenty but now I have more for another project. Looks exactly the same as the other. I also needed it NOW! So I overnighted it. The box was very heavy with 2 things of sand in it but it was worth it and the shipping was alot better than I would of thought. I will always check Oriental Trading for all my craft needs first.

The sand is rather coarse and seems to be very sparkly or glittery for some reason. You probably wouldn't notice if you were filling bottles, but it was obvious for sand painting. If you are doing sand paintings, I would recommend finding a finer sand somewhere else. I actually had a child comment that it looked like more like salt than sand, especially when it appeared to be dissolving in the glue.

I purchased this sand for a preschool. We use it for art and for sensory play. The colors look great and the sand has a nice, fine feeling to it. The kids enjoy playing in it.

Great color variety
These colors will allow the kids to decorate their flower pots as personally as they please

We run a special needs home and we got many projects out of the sand. It was a big hit!

Try it as glitter substitute
Try this sand as glitter substitute. I design and prepare crafts and purchase supplies for a weekly church program for 100 preschool children. The church has outlawed glitter so we use this sand for projects instead, and it's just as good. What gets on the floor is easy to vacuum up. I place the colored sand into salt and pepper shakers for the children to manage. The wide mouth plastic jars are easy to pour the unused sand back into. So far we used the colors for it rainbows and the white for snow. The colors are great and you get a good quantity of each. About a spaghetti jar's worth. I am going to get some for myself to use at home with grandchildren also.

Liked the brightness of the colors.
My grandson enjoyed the sand craft. It allowed for much creativity and chatter.

very happy customer
Decided to dive into sand art with my granddaughters(5-9), they have finished about 30 bottles in varying styles. They also make sand art pictures on construction paper. Great little gifts for friends and relatives. It has lasted more than 2 years. Will buy neon sand next.

Great Birthday Activity!
We bought the sand, funnels, and plastic sea animal containers for an activity during my daughters 4th Mermaid Birthday Party. This was a huge hit and all the kids (and parents) LOVED filling up the containers with this sand! There is a lot of sand with this set but I am glad I purchased 2 sets....the sea animals (I had 2 sets of those for a total of 24) used about a set and a half of the sand to fill them up. Will definately do this again for another party!! The only issue we had was that the orange color in one of the boxes was kind of clumpy...almost as if it had been damp, but it wan't a big issue and it still worked fine.
