We have a small sandbox that grandma found for the kids way back when at a garage sale. Aren’t sales just awesome?! When we got it, we thought about what we would fill the sandbox with. I didn’t want to get just ‘plain sand’. When I heard that Crayola had a new product out, Play Sand, I was excited to see what it was all about!
Crayola Play Sand
Everything’s always better with a little color… and who better to add a splash of color to kids’ lives than the modern day masters of the color spectrum, Crayola! This season, they’re here to stimulate kids’ imaginations and brighten up their sandboxes with their new colored Play Sand! Let the long, sunny outdoor days begin!
Crayola’s new soft and ultra-high quality Play Sand transforms an ordinary sandbox into a colorful bed of creativity, in fun and playful hues. And thanks to 20-pound “mom-friendly” bags featuring an easy-to-carry handle, getting the colored play sand to the sandbox is a snap. The sand is great for summer time art projects to add a blast of color but don’t worry the vibrant colors won’t leave any stains on the hands.
Early childhood development experts agree that sand play is one of the most important and beneficial activities for children to engage in to develop a wide variety of motor, spatial and social skills. “Sand play is open-ended and allows children the freedom to build and strengthen development of their small and large muscle motor skills, eye-hand coordination, mathematical, vocabulary and socialization skills,” said Cheri Sterman, director of child development, Crayola.
So this summer, open the doors to your child’s imagination and make playtime more colorful with Crayola Play Sand. Available in pink, purple, blue and green for $6.47 at select WalMart stores nationwide.
I do have to say that other than playing IN it, why not play WITH it? We have art projects a lot in the house, and Crayola Play Sand is perfect for that!
