I love having play sands and play dough around the house for the kids to keep their minds busy during the winter months or rainy days. Sands Alive has several different themed sets and colors to keep you and your children occupied and happy. We received Sands Alive Sweet Shoppe and we were so excited to get it open and see what fun stuff to make with it. As an aspired baker myself, my little ones are always using my tools as they play with their own sand and play dough so it was nice to see that they actually will have a few of their own to “bake with”.
Sweet Shoppe comes with 1.5 pounds of white Sands Alive sand. 2 Cake Molds, Cupcake Mold, 2 Ice Cream Cones, Ice Cream Scoop, Cake Server and Play Tray (which will help keep those messes off the table and floor). What I really like the most about Sands Alive is that it’s non-toxic. Not that my 5 year old will lick it or anything but I do have a smaller child and you never know if she will think its a crumb and accidentally eat it- worry-free. Also, its reusable! If he’s playing with it and walks away from it for a few hours- like children do- I don’t have to worry that when he want’s to go back to playing with it that it’s gong to be a wasted toy and dried out. Sands Alive! is very easy to clean up. Just roll a small piece into a ball and just dab it out of the carpet or off the table. Whatever doesn’t come out of the carpet will get swept up. Be sure NOT to let your sand come in contact with any water as it will dissolve the sand!
