My daughter loved this product. She loves arts and crafts and this was something that was fun and easy for her to do, yet challenging enough to keep interesting. She kept busy at it for well over an hour, but didn't want to stop as she was having so much fun seeing her work evolve. The materials were simple - sand, spreader and template - and easy to work with. My daughter liked the bright colors of the sand and even formed a small batch of mixed colors to customize it to her liking. Only thing I wish was that there was a second tool contained in the kit so that she can work simultaneously with mom or a friend to work on two of them together. Other than that, great product and a new favorite craft for my daughter to enjoy, and can't wait to play with again!
