Instructions for First Use

We recommend that you wash and dry your hands thoroughly before playing with the sand.

Sands Alive! needs to breathe! For optimal play remove Sands Alive! from the plastic bag and loosen it up with your hands as the compound comes compressed. Allow it to sit in the open air for 12 - 24 hours for it to become light and fluffy. The more you play with Sands Alive! the faster and fluffier it becomes.

Because the sand is made of natural ingredients, it may have distinct scent. We recommend that you air the product for about 1-2 hours.

You may see granules in the sand when you first open the product. As our ingredients are natural, these granules arise naturally in the production process. If you start playing with the sand, the granules should mix and disappear completely.

Instructions for Storage

Store the sand indoors and avoid excessive humidity or moisture. Just make sure to avoid putting sand on top of anything that can potentially absorb oil - such as paper, porous stones such as marble, limestone, etc. If you're not planning to use the sand for a long time, we recommend that you flip the bag or bin every 3 months so as to prevent the oil from settling at the bottom.

If you find that the sand has become gluey or doughy after reopening the container, continue playing with the sand, it should go back to normal level of consistency.
