Playing in the Sand

Headed to the beach this summer?  I’ve got a great new product for you!  I have four kids, so I know heading to the shore can be an ordeal.  Load up the car with coolers, towels, swimsuits, sunblock, drinks, the list goes on and on!  One of the things I hate bringing is sand toys.  They take up so much space and I don’t want to lug them all around when it’s time to pack up and go to the boardwalk.  Typically, I will buy a cheap set and we will simply pass them on to another family at the beach who doesn’t have them and has young children.

I was recently introduced to a great new product, Beach Stamps, made here in the USA. We received* some to play with and my kids think they are awesome! These small stamps can attach to a rubber band an easily slip on to your hands or feet for play.  Walk around and create a scene or sit and play using your hands.  Each kit comes with six stamps that make up a theme.  I particularly love the space shapes that have aliens, spaceships, stars, UFOs and a rocket ship.  These stamps barely take up any space.  In fact, you could easily tote them around in a ziplock container.  No cracking buckets or bulky toys to worry about taking with you to the beach!

I love that these shapes are flexible, fun, colorful and great for both little hands and their parents to play with.  Not going to the beach anytime soon?  Not a problem!  Pick up some of that cool kinetic sand at Michael’s or Target (that’s where I’ve seen them sold) and fill a rectangular box with the sand.  Kids and adults alike will have so much fun stamping the sand.  A great hands-on activity on a rainy day or when it’s just too hot to play outside.  You will be surprised to see how much everyone loves playing with these!

You can pick up your own Beach Stamps in a variety of themes online.

  4. My kids love to play in the sand. These look like alot of fun. Probably would be fun to bury them and have a hunt to find them again. 😉
