Fun and Funky Sand Art Reviews

These reviews were sent to us or left on our Facebook page, thank you everyone!


Kristy's Music Studio
"" My children LOVE Fun and Funky Sand Art! My daughter had a Fun and Funky Sand Art Birthday party and it was a huge hit! Jayne is friendly, extremely well organised and affordable. And the gift packs make fabulous gifts for all occasions, I have purchased many!
 Lara Hodgson
"" My son loves his; every time we see you at an event he has to get a new one done! He has started naming them. LOL
 Rebecca Zammit

"" We were very fortunate to be the lucky winner of a Fun and Funky Sand Art kit when all my friends joined the Facebook page. The postage was unbelievably fast, and the service received from the staff was of a high level. We want to say a big thankyou for providing lots of fun not only to my children but to my sister in laws who joined in on the fun. Would highly recommend these to all mums looking for something creative for their children to do.
"" After our day at skidaddle, my kids have two big bottles and two shaped bottles and they love them so much they call them their "sand family".
Possums Family Day Care
" We had 2 great sand bottle days! For my family day care we had a birthday party where the 2 year olds really loved being able to do it themselves! But the older kids desperately wanted their turn... I must admit I loved mine as well. The package arrived much faster than I expected, and were very generous with the sand and accessories! Thanks for a great activity for the kids!!! Will def be looking to do this again!
Belinda Forman
"" We love Fun and Funky Sand Art at Flinders Early Learning Centre!! After the success of our fundraising stall at last years Flinders fair we are doing it again this year. The kids absolutely love showing everyone their creations and can't wait for his years fair to make another one! The best part as a parent running the stall, was the easy to set up and maintenance throughout the day. Thanks for such a fun activity for all the kids!
Mamma's Market
"" We are so pleased so have been able to have the pleasure of Fun & Funky Sand Art visit Mamma's Market. It was so popular with all the kids and is such an affordable activity with a lovely finished project to take home.

Our own children's sand art people take pride of place in their bedrooms and they proudly show them to any visitors in our home :)

Jayne is a pleasure to deal with and we would recommend Fun & Funky Sand Art for your next special occasion or fundraiser!
"" Excellent Service, very prompt delivery of the at home do it yourself kit, fun faced bottles and a wonderful product. Even after I kept adding to the order I still received great service. The kids loved the product at the party and it kept them very amused. I even had friends want cards to do the same at their parties. We had a bit of sand left over and continued to have fun for a few weeks after. Our little bottled men now stand in our kitchen. Really great idea for kids party.
Julia Tait
"" We had Fun and Funky Sand Art come to Kawana playgroup for our Christmas break up party! The kids loved doing the Santa bottles and it was something special they could take home and have as a decoration for Christmas. Jayne is very organised, friendly and this was a great activity for the kids. We would have her again.
Nicky Paora
"" We had Fun and Funky Sand Art at my son's 1st Birthday as an activity for the older children attending the party. I phoned Jayne in advance to discuss the theme of my party and within hours she had emailed me a design that she had created that matched the character. The children loved the activity, and even better I used the sand art bottles as a gift in place of a loot bag full of lollies! I have also attended a number of parties and playgroup sessions where my kids have made sand bottles and they love the opportunity to sit at the craft table and create their own design. I bought the take home kits last Christmas for friends and family as they make fabulous gifts for all occasions!
Joanna Bright 'Turner'
"" We had a Fun and Funky Sand Art Party for my son's 2nd Birthday party, we had a Wiggles theme, and Jayne came up with fantastic bottles Wags & Dorothy. All the children had a fantastic time and loved making the Wags/Dorothy bottles. Jayne was so professional and great with all the children. I would highly recommend Fun and Funky, great value & great service. We will be having another Sand Party for my daughter's next birthday by the request of my 3 children!!
Rebecca Cotter
"" We had the Fun and Funky Sand Art do it yourself at home kits for my son's 3rd birthday the other weekend... it was a huge hit! I was concerned that some kids may struggle as a few were under 3, however they all had a blast. The kits were all ready to go and so simple to use. It's also a very affordable activity. I HIGHLY recommend it for any occasion!
Karen Petfield
"" Hi there, We had a great time today at Skidaddle making your Funky Sand Art bottles with faces. My daughter had so much fun making her's and one for her sister. What a fantastic way for the kids to get into some creative crafty activity. I'll definitely be having you over for our next kids birthday party's. Thanks again.

Thank you for a wonderful idea - kids loved it‏

To Fun and Funky Sand Art, At home do it yourself kit.
"Hi Jayne,

They were really good, packaged well - good value and easy to understand. 
Because of the size of my Party we did all the faces before hand - but a 
smaller party I think you could easily get the kids to choose etc. They all did
a good job,and even the really young like 2 years had a go and came out successful. 
I didn't get a chance to photograph more of them as I was so busy - we ended 
up with 60+ people! But a really good day, thank you."

Sam Salta
"Hi Jayne.  
Thank you so much for the quick delivery.  It was sitting there safely when I 
got back from school drop off.  
The colors look great and I am sure the girls will have a fun time making the
bottles and all I have to do is get out the blower in the end to clean up.
Thanks again, your customer service is excellent and I will recommend your 
business to friends.
 Melanie Brain

"We had a wiggles theme for my daughter's third birthday and Jayne did such a wonderful job. She was so calm and professional, even with 16 super excited children. The kids had a fantastic time which was made even more special when they got to take home their Dorothy the Dinosaur themed sand bottles as their party favor. I would absolutely recommend a fun and funky sand art party"

Anonymous Facebook User

"We had a fun and funky party for my daughters 7th birthday and they all absolutely loved it, we added the craft table great value for money. We would definitely recommend, very professional and easy to book."

Kaylene Cullen

Facebook Media Drives Business



Using Facebook, it's a great marketing tool...

Being a work at home mum and running my own business I have a very small budget for advertising.

Facebook for me is a free utility, the only thing it costs me is my time! 

Do you have a Facebook Business page? If not I would fully recommend one, we are seeing more and more Corporate businesses publishing the  Facebook logo 'Like us on Facebook' on their marketing material, why? because they know it works.   Any size business can set up a business page, it is free!

I set up my Facebook business page Fun and Funky Sand Art a year ago last April after realising the potential  to use it as a free advertising platform for my business.

Personally I think Facebook is such a great network tool because it really enables you to network with other local businesses along with potential customers, it is another shop window to my business, showing a more personal aspect, it allows customers to interact with you, post comments and add their photographs sharing their experiences with you and others, that is something that my website window cannot do!  You can really engage with your page likers via their news feeds by simply publishing a wall post or product photograph, even if they do not comment, you know they are out there and reading your posts, that I know from personal experience, I read many posts from other pages but I don't always acknowledge them all by clicking the wall post 'like' button but I am still seeing it.

As the old saying goes, word of mouth is the best form of advertising, well Facebook works the same, you simply click the 'share' or 'Invite your friends' button with your Facebook family and friends, instantly sharing your page ......and hey presto, it's too easy!

I was delighted when the Sunshine Coast Daily Newspaper contacted me last week asking to write an article on Facebook and mums in business.........of course I said yes and what great free advertising for 
Fun and Funky Sand Art  too!!!!  

I've shared the article below, I know I am biased but what a gorgeous pic of my five year old son Josh!

Unity Wedding Ceremony & Naming Ceremony

Are you getting married or having a naming ceremony? 

Have you ever thought about incorporating a Unity Sand Ceremony at your wedding or naming ceremony.  This is a lovely way to incorporate family members especially children from a previous/current relationship into your ceremony and its also a great keepsake of your day.


The Unity Sand Ceremony

The Unity Sand Ceremony is a novel alternative for the popular "unity candle ceremony" incorporated into many of today's weddings. The essence is to symbolize the union of "two into one". This sand version is not only beautiful and interesting but also more appropriate for an outdoor setting and if you have other members of the family you wish to incorporate ie; children. The ceremony is also an opportunity to recognize those specific individuals who have played an instrumental role in the couple’s lives. The sand ceremony can be personalized in many different ways to fit the occasion. The ceremony usually takes place whilst exchanging the couple’s vows.

After the Unity Sand Ceremony, the couple has a unique keepsake to remember their wedding day.

Sand ceremonies can also be used for a naming ceremony.

The Meaning of the Unity Sand Ceremony


The flowing sand and blending of the colours in the Unity Sand Ceremony symbolize the bringing together of two lives into one. The two sands symbolize everything that the bride and groom have been or will become in the future.
The blending of the sand represents the union not only of them but their friends and families as well. The separate sands once poured into the unity vase can never be put back into their separate vases. They are forever entwined just as the lives and loves of the bride and groom.
Some couples prefer to leave a small amount of sand in their respective container to show that even though they now function as one, they remain individuals.

There are no set rules for the ceremony, you can adapt it to suit your own needs, one couple who purchased sands from us had every guest at their wedding pour in a small amount of sand into a glass container, they chose lots of different colours, other couples have left room at the top of the container to add their honeymoon sand and even a sand colour for future children. 


There are many Unity wedding sand glass containers on the market, some can be very pricey, however if you are on a budget, many of the cheaper shops these days have lovely glass vases and containers and lots of wine and liqueurs have fancy bottles with caps too that you could use.  Make a paper funnel for small brimmed bottle tops using your wedding stationery or choose a colour to match your theme.


Wedding Vow Example

(Groom) and (Bride), you have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings and this covenant is a relationship pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives. The most beautiful example of this partnership is the marriage relationship.
You have committed here today to share the rest of your lives with each other. Today, this relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two containers of sand. One represents you (Groom), all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. The other, representing you (Bride), and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the third container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual containers, so will your marriage be.

For children:
“(Children’s name/s) your mother (and/or father) and (name) love you very much, and want you to know that you are and will always be a very important part of their lives. Will you please pour some sand into this glass container along with your good wishes? That would mean so much to them." (Parents then hug and kiss their children!)

Craft table option great for parties and school vacation care programmes!

Kids Love Crafts!

One of our craft fun faced bottles.... the face says it all!

It doesn’t matter the age from toddler, prep to teenager, kids all love crafts!

Craft play is not only fun but it helps children develop many needed skills

Ø      Fine motor skills
Ø      Hand eye co-ordination skills
Ø      Colour recognition
Ø      Learning how to follow instruction
Ø      Creative thinking skills
Ø      Decision-making

Craft activity can be age related but at the same time it should be challenging and fun to allow the child to explore and express their own independence and imagination.  Thinking what to create, decision making and making a choice to processing thoughts are all vital skills along with having fun but with out the stress.

 Fun and Funky Sand Art  'Craft bottle option'

When making a sand art bottle children fill a bottle with different coloured sands using a spoon and funnel to create fun and funky designs. With the craft table option we bring along an additional craft table which has an array of different crafts, incorporating all of the above skills.

Once the children have had fun by filling their own bottle with different coloured sands, they can then move over to the craft table where they can choose crafts from the craft table to decorate. We allow all ages the opportunity to have fun with their imaginations and transform their bottle into fun characters from pirates, fairies, aliens, animals and whatever their imaginations allow, the end result being that of personal accomplishment, pride and pleasure is in itself very rewarding, it always astonishes me with the same crafts supplied no two bottles are ever the same!  We use non toxic craft glue and some self adhesive crafts, we are also on hand with a glue gun where WE will glue any crafts such as feathers that require that little extra glueing!

The craft bottle option is available for both birthday parties, workshops and school vacation care (OSHC) programmes on the Sunshine Coast.  We can come to you taking the stress away.  We bring along our sand and craft tables, so there is no work for you and the best part is... we clean up after!  

Both boys and girls of all ages enjoy the craft table option, we recommend from the ages 3 years and up with some parent supervision and child dependent, some may need more assistance. In my experience children ages 5 years and up by this age have quite made up their own mind about how they wish to transform their bottle and need very little if none at all guidance!

How much does it cost!?  

We charge per bottle, our bottles are plastic with a screw on lid.

$10.50 per bottle - this includes us coming out and hosting, setting up, the sand bottle activity, all craft materials and of course clearing up after!   (Fun faced bottle option without craft table $8.50 per bottle).

Minimum of 10 children or 10 bottles.

A travel surcharge may apply outside 20 klm radius of Nambour.

We do require please about 6m x 6m space for the tables to allow room for the children to be able to walk around comfortably, a dry undercover area with access to a power point, if it is really windy we will also require a sheltered area such as garage so that the crafts do not blow away!
Recommended for ages 3 years and above due to small craft parts.

Thank you to Adori Studios Photograpy, Mooloolaba for sharing these beautiful pics taken at her daughters Fun and Funky Sand Art craft birthday party.

No need for lolly bags they get to take their own special creations home to remember their day!



Our Sand table holds 16 different coloured sands!  and the table is height adjustable so it is suitable for all ages!


Other craft bottles!

Imaginations run free! every bottle is different!
