Under the Sea Sand Art Bottles
These bottles were a huge success. I was quite please with the quality, and the picture shows them (in my eyes) smaller than what they really are. Great price and an excellent product.

Purchased 2 sets of these along with the funnels and 2 boxes of sand. This was one of the hits of the party. (Mermaid Theme - 4 yr olds) Everyone loved it, including the parents!! I am glad I got 2 boxes of sand - it took a box and a half to fill up 2 sets of these. We will be doing this activity at the next party!!

Cute class project
I bought two sets of bottles (sea creatures and sand castles) for my daughter's pre-school class for her 5th birthday party. The sea creatures were definately more popular. They are very cute. I took the advice of another reviewer who mentioned using plastic bottles to help poor the sand in place of the funnels, but I found the funnels easier to use and layered the sand faster and nicer. I brought home the left-overs for my 7 year-old and her nieghbor friend. They loved them as well.

Expensive but worth it
We threw an ocean-theme party for my son and these sand art bottles were great. They are quite large and therefore use a lot of sand. Between the cost of the bottles themselves, and the craft sand, they end up being a relatively expensive activity. However, the kids (ages 2 to 8) loved them. The whale design was a little tricky to fill all the way -- it's difficult to get the tail completely full of sand. If the bottles are NOT completely full then the layers of sand start to mix together, so make sure your child fills them all the way to the top. I would recommend buying extra funnels; the box of 12 bottles only has one funnel.

Had end of the school year party for my daughter at our home. Twenty 4&5 year olds! All of them enjoyed this project. The moms raved about the idea and the craft was very age appropriate. Definitely need the funnels. best craft idea for a party. Unique and kept them busy. Clean up wasn't too bad as I just swept the floor and done!

They were very nice but I wished they came with more funnels. I really needed more than one. The kids were very excited about this activity.
