I am always up for a good craft experience and if you slap a big “mess free” on it, you know I’m game. The Melissa & Doug Mess-Free Sand Mosaics had my attention right from the get go, and this simple craft time was more fun than I expected!

Age Range: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 year olds

This craft project is packaged in a sort of fancy envelope. Inside the package are four large foam mosaics, ribbons, instructions and a booklet of “sand” paper. Melissa & Doug Mess Free Sand Mosaics

The Playtime Experience

The instruction manual directs you to pick a mosaic and begin by peeling the paper covering from a portion of the mosaic. Then select the “sand’ paper color you like, and lay it color-side down on the sticky surface. When you peel that away you are left with a textured, colored portion of your mosaic. Keep doing this with colors of your choice until you are left with a creation all your own. Mess-Free Sand Mosaics Review Mess-Free Sand Mosaics

Final Note

I wasn’t expecting a lot when I opened the Melissa & Doug Mess-Free Sand Mosaics. I was interested because it said mess free but I always take that with a grain of salt. This set is not only easy, beautiful, and entertaining, it is TRULY mess free! I totally recommend this crafting set and give it two huge thumbs up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-5ejAmDFs0 (You may also like: 20 Best Classic Melissa and Doug Toys)
