Magic Sand Desert


In stock

This is the PERFECT way to play with a sandy desert!

Did you know that 20% of our earth is a desert, and while there is not much rain, there is a vast number of animals, but, plants and other species living perfectly happy in these extreme conditions.

This desert play kit focuses on a sandy desert, there are other kinds too. A large part of the Arctic & Antartica is a desert, covered in ice, it’s called a cold desert. There are deserts on beaches too.


The Magic Sand Desert includes:

A 750g pot of magic (Kinetic/modelling) sand.

  • We use Creall Modelling sand as it is:
    • Made in the NL
    • Contains no preservative
    • In a recycled, reusable storage pot
    • Does not dry out and is not sticky.


A cactus cutter.

This can be used to stamp cactus shapes into the sand, filled with sand – it has a nice high side or it can be used for play dough play later on.

  • The cactus is food safe and can be used to bake with once you are done playing.
