Sand in a Box


This Mold & Play Sensory Sand Set from Lakeshore Learning is fabulous. The sand is amazing. It's soft and moldable yet doesn't stick to clothes or fingers. It's easy to clean up. You've got to try it!(NOTE: I was given this Mold & Play Sensory Sand Set for review. However, that did not influence my opinion in any way.)

My family loves playing in the sand. At our extended family reunion (while our kids were growing up), we always went to the Pink Coral Sand Dunes in southern Utah.

For about 26 years, we’ve loved driving the sandy trails around Moab, Utah, and going to the Little Sahara Sand Dunes that is a short drive from our home. We love sand.

So I was thoroughly excited when Lakeshore Learning asked me if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. Boy howdy! Count me in!

When my granddaughters came over to play with the Mold & Play Sensory Sand Set, they could hardly wait to open the package and start playing.

They scooped, and rolled, and patted, and molded, and dug . . .

At times, little Emma was serious in her efforts.

“Look, Grandma!” Natalie kept saying as she played.

I thought that the sand’s texture was so amazing that I had to play with it a wee little bit, too. So did my daughter. So did my son-in-law. We were all captivated by it!

This sand looks like wet sand. It molds like wet sand. But it is completely dry. And soft. Wow! How in the world do they do that?

The set comes with tools, molds for building a castle, a plastic tub, and 2.2 pounds of sensory sand. A diagram of a castle is included so you can get an idea of how to build a castle with the different molds.

Isn’t that sand castle cool?

I was amazed at how this sand didn’t stick to clothing or fingers — yet it was so easy to mold.

When my granddaughters got exuberant in their playing and flung sand outside of the tub, the sand was super easy to clean up.

Emma got some sand on her shirt. Not to worry! It easily brushed off.

My granddaughters loved playing in the sand so much that they didn’t want to stop when it was time. That is the mark of a great product!

My granddaughter did say that she wished that it came with a shovel. My daughter said it would be nice if the tub had a lid. Are you listening, you makers of this sensory sand kit? These two features would really please your customers.

I was very impressed with this sensory sand set. I highly recommend it and give it two thumbs up!
