Review // Sands Alive Cake Shop

Recently I decided I would try and do more sensory play with Rupert, in a bid to get him to experience new things and my end goal of getting him to actually eat.

We have played with play foam, play doh, water beads, and his favourite so far....magic sand!
So when we were sent Sands Alive Cake Shop kit from John Adams I knew he would love to make up some cakes.



What comes in the kit;
1 play tray,
1 pack of normal coloured sand.
1 pack of pink sand,
2 rolling pins,
3 cake moulds.


Ru and I both love the strange feel to Sands Alive, Ru is a big pink fan, so he instantly was drawn to the bright pink sand and was keen to make some cakes.
He first had to squash it all down so it completely covered the play tray, once it was fully covered could he begin playing.

We tried out the cupcake mould first and we were both pretty impressed at how cool it came out.
Every cake I made, he destroyed!
He then re did it himself and looked very pleased with himself.


He loved the fact that the rolling pins left imprints on the sand and would roll it all out and then point to all the different fruit he could see.


For a fun filled sensory play session Sands Alive was perfect and it kept him busy for at least half an hour!

The Sands Alive sand is great as it never drys out and even when mixed in together it still looks pretty.
Perfect for getting out time and time again.
Knowing that the money you spent isn't going to be wasted and end up in the bin after only a couple of times of being played with.


It's Ru's birthday coming up next month and I know I'll be suggesting Sands Alive kits as present ideas.


You can find Sands Alive Cake Shop from Argos for £19.99

Christmas Gift Ideas // Sands Alive Glow



The twins have been asking for some magic sand since seeing an advert on telly. 
So when I was offered the chance to review the new Sands Alive Glow it was a no brainer!



I've never been 100% about the stuff as I thought it would be a load of rubbish and mess but I was rather wrong.
The sand feels strange but in a good way and it makes no mess, well none that isn't easily cleanable.


In the kit you get a bag of the sand, 
a magic UV pen, 
a play tray and some moulds.


The boys absolutely loved playing with Sands Alive Glow, even Noah surfaced from his room to have a play.
They all made a mini village and then enjoyed making the castles glow in the dark.



The boys loved switching off the lights and watching their village glow.
They screamed with joy that it had turned into an alien village, their imagination is limitless and having magic sand that you cans sculpt and mould to anything and everything is endless.

Sands Alive will make a great Christmas pressie and will provide hours of entertainment.
I've bought two more for the boys so that they can have their own to play and build with.



This magical sand never dries out or hardens, and is made from natural materials, and is bacteria-resistant!!
Mini castles.

You can buy Sands Alive Glow from Amazon for £19.97
