7 Creative Sand Toys To Blow Your Kid's Mind (And Your Own)Morgan Shanahan
If your kid is anything like my water babe, a day at the beach is a world between mermaid and princess, surfer and architect. Our family likes to think of ourselves as design enthusiast and DIY-motivated (although not always DIY-completed) so you can imagine the swoon effect brought on by Battat’s Summer Sand Castle Play Set complete with turret molds, staircase molds, castle wall and castle roof molds, and a hammer and shovel tool to boot. Talk about kicking it up a notch! Want to build the best sandcastle on the beach? The kind that attracts the masses? I give you my favorite Sand Castle Molds for the season!
The straight up geniuses at Battat created this Summer Sand Castle Play Set which has kept us busy in Dee’s backyard (DIY) sand box for an entire afternoons, which in kid time is like a week.
