Let your children get creative, in 1995 the Crazy Sand craft activity was created as a fun and imaginative way to give delight and joy to Children by filling up unusual shaped bottles with brightly coloured sand.
Crazy Sand is now recognised as the premier name associated with coloured sand in bottles.
All of the Crazy Sand bottles have been uniquely designed here in the UK, with Children in mind to capture their imagination and to stimulate their creativity when participating in the Crazy Sand activity.
The Crazy Sand bottle shapes have been developed to create maximum fun for children at events. There are 19 Crazy Sand bottles in the range including the Lion, Elephant and Dinosaur and we also have sealife creatures like the Dolphin, Seahorse and Angel Fish. The unique bottle designs are of the highest quality and by using our 10 vibrant colours children can create their own striking souvenir.
Sand Art in the form of bottles of different shapes with designs made from coloured sand was popular with the early Victorians, as noted in the ‘Handbook to the Isle of Wight’ by Thomas Bretell printed in 1844.
Queen Victoria in 1860 was presented with sand art gifts made from the unique coloured sand of Alum Bay and this led to the beginning of a very special souvenir tradition that is still as popular today as it was in Victorian times. Many people still remember visiting the Isle of Wight as a child and filling their own sand art souvenir straight from the beach.
We are very excited to be in the Little Dudes Den, can’t wait to meet you.
