Features and benefits for Natural Play Sand – 5kg Bag

  • 5kg bag of play sand
  • 20 kg of our play sand is recommended for use with our sand and water tables. And 10kg of sand for our My first sand and water table (all sold separately)
  • Sand has rounded edges – non scratchy, gentle on young skin
  • Clean and non-toxic
  • Produced in the UK
Perfect for use with sand pits and the ELC sand and water tables, this play sand has been specially washed and smoothed to ensure it is not scratchy on delicate skin and less irritating if your little one should get it in their eye whist having fun building and sculpting.

Children can have endless fun building, sculpting and digging with the ELC play sand. It's ideal for using with sandpits, and the ELC sand and water table (both sold separately), and has been specially washed to smooth any rough edges so it is gentle on delicate skin and will not irritate eyes if some should get blown in on windy days or through enthusiastic play. The play sand is clean, and non- toxic and produced in the UK. We recommend between 10/20kg of sand to fill our sand and water table (or 10kg for the My first sand and water table).

Natural Play Sand – 5kg Bag is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality soft sand You will need quite a few bags of sand as each bag is not much bigger than an A4 piece of paper (length wise) but the sand is very high quality and very soft. Would highly recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ordered 5 bags of sand via Tesco. Two were delivered. When I called I was told the others were 'lost in transit '. Two more delivered today but we are still missing the 5th. I think I have spent more on phone calls than the value of the sand!

is that sand that you can NOT build sandcastles with? I'm looking for fine, free flowing sand, not stuff that you can use to build with. Many thanks. Ros

Asked by: Ros
Hi The sand is very fine, it's slightly damp when it first comes out of the bag but once it's dry it's completely free flowing. My children have it in their sandpit and add water to build sand castles but also when it's dry it runs through the water mill they have.
