Beach Explorations with Moon Sand®!

Hello. I’m Amy Foley, an Educational Consultant with Discount School Supply® based in Ohio. Although I am new to Discount School Supply®, I have worked with teachers in early childhood classrooms for the last 10 years.

Growing up in Central Ohio, I didn’t get a chance to see or feel sand on a beach until I was a teenager. Finally, we went to spend two weeks over the 4th of July holiday, and I can still remember that feeling of warmth and calm between my toes. Do you remember what it felt like the first time you felt sand between your toes?

Everyone can get that same feeling with Moon Sand® (PMOONSET) from Discount School Supply®. Let your senses be excited with this unique product that shapes into whatever you ask it to- sand castles to letters and anything in between. Moon Sand® is specially coated sand that molds without adding water, and it retains its shape until you want to make something new.

Little ones will love using simple shovels and rakes (SHOVRK8) to play and practice gross motor skills while others may want to mold T-Rex dinosaur bones with our sand molds (EXBONES). My personal favorite would be to practice letter recognition with our Uppercase Alphabet Sand Molds (CAPITAL). By filling these primary colored sand molds with red, blue or yellow Moon Sand®, children can recognize and practice their letter recognition and learn to spell their names. What fun!

Where to store and use my Moon Sand®? How about a sand activity tub (TUBS)? Or for toddlers, the Sand and Water Table with Shelf (2856) keeps your Moon Sand® clean and fresh, while storing your sand toys underneath on the birch shelf.

Moon Sand® is sure to offer hours and hours of fun, educational play time for kids of any age: preschoolers to grandparents and anyone who loves to remember that first time they felt the sand in their hands and between their toes.
