1. Kraftic Sand Art Kit
This excellent all-in-one kit has 10 fun bottle designs, including one that can be turned into a wearable pendant, and 13 bags of brightly colored sand—the largest selection of colors of any kit we’ve found. The kit also includes an easy-fill funnel and handy design stick.
2. Creativity for Kids Rainbow Sandland
This sand kit includes all the supplies to create one large sand display. You get a curved plastic vessel and six bright colors of sand (including one that glitters) to create a fantasy world using the provided funnel and design tool. Once the sand is layered, the provided foam base and top help to keep everything in place. As a final touch, users can decorate the outside with stickers and place a mini unicorn figurine inside. More suitable for individual play than for a group activity, this sand kit is sure to spark your child’s creativity.
3. Creative Kids Sand Art Kit
This kit has some of the most exciting bottle shapes available, including a dolphin, butterfly, horse, and potted plant, with special looped caps to turn three of the bottles into pendants. There are nine bags of brightly colored sand plus one small glitter sand bag to choose from, allowing lots of room to experiment. While the package includes everything needed to complete the sand art project, there is only one funnel and detailing stick, so it may be difficult for two or more kids to work on their project simultaneously.
