Sea Shell Sand Art Bottle Necklaces
Fun activity, break away works too well
We used the necklaces (50) and filled them with sand as a craft for my daughter's swimming party. They were a huge hit! The only problem was that the break away safety feature works too well. The sand makes them heavy and 3-4 fell off, broke and spilled sand. This was very upsetting to the little ones, but we had enough for them to make another one, thankfully. We ended up going around tying all the necklaces instead of snapping them together.

We used these for a Girl Scout Encampment. However a few broke easily so we just gave them replacements.

Great for our craft project
We used these for a sand art craft for Creation celebration. Instead of using sand we used colored sugar. A very popular project!

Good for a birthday party craft
Bought these for my daughter's 6th birthday party (as well as the funny sand art bottles). This set only came with 1 funnel (but the funny bottles came with a bunch). I taped up the ends since according to one reviewer they could break apart when the necklaces were heavy, but we didn't experience that. The kids had fun filling them up, though they do have to be completely full so the colors don't mix when you move them. But it was something new for the kids to do, and they didn't need much help with it. Shells were okay quality.

Very Cute, but Very Fragile
While we loved the appearance of these little shell necklaces, we were disappointed by 2 things...
1. They came with only two tiny funnels
2. The sides of the shells cracked far too easily. If kids bumped them too hard on anything we had a great sandy mess.
If you're going for a beachy theme, buy the fish necklaces! They are sturdy, and come with larger funnels (one for each fish!) that are just the right size.
