Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lostfan1 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 colors are true to the photo and the price is competitive with my local big box stores. Originally I worried if there would be enough sand for the 2 dozen bear necklaces I bought (also available on Oriental Trading) and there was more than enough. I still have 8 practically full jars of sand post-party.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diggo Bright colors and plenty of sand
This is a wonderful set of colors. The sand is good quality
and there is plenty of it. The children say it looks like sugar.
I've worked out a way to make it easy to use by pouring it
into little cruets and setting the cruets in muffin tins so they won't tip over as children move them. I would like to know how other people have made it easy for the children to pour the sand carefully and have all the colors within reach.

These are very vibrant colors. This was more than enough to make 12 flowerpots.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by llewis Very sparkly
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.
