As the Summer holidays beckon, it’s time to down tools and enjoy a break from home schooling. Crafts have kept us both entertained during lockdown and I have a feeling this will continue. Liv has always loved making things, with the So… DIY sets proving popular over the years. When the opportunity to try a So Sand DIY Case from Canal Toys popped into my emails, it was impeccably timed! We have previously featured the So Slime Factory which we loved, so had an inkling of what to expect. Read on to find out what we thought and how you can win you own So Sand DIY Satisfying Sand Tool Case!
So Sand DIY Satisfying Sand Tool Case
The So Sand DIY Tool Case includes everything you need to create different coloured sands for hours of fun sensory play. There is something quite satisfying and relaxing about playing with sand, but being able to make your own colourful sand and add extras such as glitter is even more fun!
It is very easy to mix the sand with the coloured packs and you will find yourself playing with the sand pretty much immediately! Now, it can get quite messy (the hoover was permanently out!), so I would strongly advise playing with this on a board or outside. As you can see from the image below, the pink and yellow colouring can stain, so protect your flooring and furnishings!
Whether you choose to simply play with the sand or you use the included round or square mold accessories to create shapes, there is no denying it is a very theraputic toy. With 3 packs of sand, 3 coloured packs and packs of glitter, molds and cutting tools, the possiblities are endless for what you can create!
The images on the box look amazing and I wish Liv could have created some exquiste sand art, alas, she clumped it all together and created a large mass of sand instead. At this point it was hard to make out all the different colours! With this, she prefered to shape and chop in her own way and played with it longer than expected. The sand does feel really soft and is easy to mold, but becareful of stray clumps! The sand does keep very well if kept in an air tight container or the tool kit and I have noticed her play with the So Sand on several occasions since.
There is something rather hypnotic about playing with and shaping sand. Whilst this is aimed at children aged 6 years plus, I defy most parents to not have a try too! This is where the sensory benefits of the So Sand range really do become apparent, it is such a calming toy and with the craziness of current life, is a great toy to bring much joy over the summer holidays.
Wondering how to keep the sand and included accessories tidy? The plastic tool kit box is seriously sturdy with a well sealed lid and a great place to keep your sand creations and all the accessories. It’s also very portable, making it ideal for taking with you on trips out.
Priced at a reasonable £20, you can buy the set from retailers such as Argos and Smyths Toys.
