Don’t get me wrong. My kids love building sandcastles when we’re at the beach. They love filling up their buckets, dumping them over, tapping them just right, and creating a world of sand castles and moats. But I have a feeling they’re going to get a huge kick out of this Bag o’ Beach Bones the next time we’re playing in the sand.
That’s because these plastic sand toys are perfecting for building a skeleton in the sand. Yes, you read that right. Toysmith makes molds of bones, which are perfect for building skeletons!
The set comes with 14 bone molds total, and when they’re put together they’ll form a life-size sand skeleton. I love the description of the hands and toes: “Hand and feet bones are connected in one mold so fingers and toes will always come out intact.” Because intact bones are important.
But seriously. The possibilities for imaginative play with these bone molds are endless! I can already picture my kids having a “pirate adventure” after they’ve made some sand bones. Homeschooling? They are also a great way to teach your kids about the skeletal system.
Come winter time, don’t put those bones away. The Bag o’ Beach bones also work well in snow. (It’s a good thing the molds are blue — they’re easier to find that way!)
Toysmith Get Outside Bag o’ Beach Bones Playset is available on Amazon for a reasonable $17.99.
