If you’re still not done shopping I have the perfect, fun, gift you should check out. Sands Alive! Glow by Incredible Novelties. It comes in a box with black light glow glasses and a glow pen, as well as glowing Sands Alive! and a box to play with the Sands Alive in. Both the pen and glasses come with the batteries needed.
The directions recommend opening the sand up and letting it “breath” to be more pliable. After it set out for a few hours my kids were ready to play. (You can watch a video review from them below)
Some reasons this product make a great gift are many. My favorite reason is that it doesn’t dry out. So my kids can start making a creation and leave it out and we don’t have to worry about it being dry when we come back to play. I also like that there is little mess. Unlike real sand, Sands Alive sticks together, leaving less mess and allowing it to be formed in to many shapes. With Sands Alive!b Glow it’s even more fun. You can create shapes and then draw on them with the black light glow pen or light it all up with the glasses. My kids love playing with it in the dark.
We all love playing with Sands Alive. We’ve had hours of fun and have come back to play every day. I think my girls want to add more so they can each have a set to play with.
