Shape It Sand (formerly Moon Sand) acts and feels like wet beach sand but it never dries out. It is gluten-free, dust-free and allergen-free. Can be sanitized, simply pick out foreign debris, spread it out, mist with sanitzer, and allow to air dry. Therapist Note: Great for building fine motor skills, creative exploration, and sensory play. www.playapy.com
