Over the last year we’ve reviewed both the glow set sands alive and the cake shop sands alive set, but it was only Alice who was old enough to play with it.
So, when we were recently sent the Sands Alive Sweet Treats set, Holly was really excited when I told her she could now play with it. Holly LOVES sand, when she is in the garden I can’t get her out of the sand pit. But now the colder days are here we are spending less time out in the garden.
Sands Alive is perfect for my sand loving little girl. Her eyes lit up and she couldn’t wait to start playing with it.
If you are not familiar with Sands Alive and wondering what I am going on about. Let me explain. Sands Alive is a super soft modelling sand set and it comes with sand, a tray, cake and ice cream moulds. A great feature is that the sand doesn’t dry out!
The Sweet Treats set comes with an ice cream scoop, cones, cake moulds and a cupcake mould, perfect for Holly whose favourite food is ice cream.
She couldn’t wait to get started and didn’t need any help from me, which is great as I can get on with some jobs around the kitchen while she sits happily making me ice cream and cakes out of sand.
Alice was outside with Andy, but it wasn’t long until she spotted what Holly was doing and wanted to join her. It’s great that this is something they can enjoy doing together, with enough accessories to go around.
Alice set about making the cake!
Carefully tipping it over…
I honestly think my girls would happily play with Sands Alive for a couple of hours, they never seem to get bored of it like they do with other things. It’s always me that instigates tidy up time.
I do try and get the girls to keep it in the tray, but of course there are always going to be bits that end up on the table and floor, but its hoovers up really easily.
Once the girls have finished it’s really easy to pop everything back in the tray and into the box ready for next time.
The Sands Alive Sweet Treats set is RRP £18.40 and available to buy from Amazon.
