Original Sand Treasures
In 1998, Sand Treasures began making its sand excavation hobby kits. Like many other original ideas, they have been imitated, over-packaged, and mass
produced in foreign lands, but this company remains committed to the minimalist approach, and continues to be made in Ontario. Just soften with water then go
searching for "treasures" from all around the world.
Sand Treasures each feature an interesting sea shell, a Canadian coin that is at least 50 years old and a selection of polished gemstones. This is a great activity for children aged 4 - 104 (yes I love doing them myself!). They take between 30 minutes and an hour to complete for most children. You have to work to scrape all the pieces out until you have discovered all the treasure - and there is always lots of treasure!
