Add a Pop of Color to Your Aquarium

Brighten your aquarium with our sand, and know our safe, nontoxic sand will never fade or bleed.

Crayola Play Sand is bleedproof and our all natural quartz sand resists abrasion better than typical sands. Each grain of sand has been screened and is completely round – giving it a smooth soft feel. Our sand is non-toxic, lead free and the colorant is bonded to the sand at 250°F which destroys any possible fungal material or biomaterial. As a matter of fact we don't even use chemicals in our cleaning process - it goes through an extremely hot water wash. 

And like all Crayola products, our Play Sand underwent extreme product testing, however, we don't do any animal testing. If you would like to find out more about the safe uses of our sand, we encourage you to visit official aquarium forums and blogs.

Bright, colorful, safe Crayola Play Sand lets children take their creative experiences outdoors. But how safe is Crayola Play Sand? Crayola brand has been a well-trusted brand for many years and all our play sand products are independently tested at Duke University &  BioScience Laboratories. Unlike beach sand, the smooth grains are thoroughly washed and dried to remove all contaminants and dirt. And be assured that absolutely no chemicals were used in washing our sand, only water!!!  To further ensure you that our Play Sand is safe, each grain is dried by heating them to 250°F which destroys any possible fungal or bio-material.

Let your summer be colorful and most importantly safe!
