Life on a Sandbar in the Outer Banks Offers Del Sol’s Color-Changing Technology!

Enjoy Del Sol Products In The Outer Banks

Del-Sol’s unique color-changing technology that you see in the Outer Banks is called Spectrachrome®. NASA originally discovered this advanced technology for space programs. Now, Del Sol is making this obtainable to everyone! The organic crystals used in Del Sol products, when exposed to sunlight (UV radiation), change color immediately. This one of a kind color changing technology is guaranteed for life! How dramatic the color change depends on the amount of the sun’s UV rays. Even on cloudy days, 80% of the sun’s UV rays still cross through the clouds, so don’t fear, color change is near!

It is a one of a kind technology. The OBX sun shines on Del Sol nails, shirts, or bags and the crystals react. This reaction is due to the Spectrachrome technology. Once the crystals react they change color.

Check out the infographic. It is a quick diagram of the technology you see here in the Outer Banks at Life On A Sandbar being used in Del Sol items.

The Perfect Outer Banks Souvenir

Whether the day you first arrive in the Outer Banks or the day you leave you have to have the perfect souvenir. You can go the route of the traditional t-shirt, or keychain. But why not get a Del Sol Outer Banks T-Shirt that changes in the sun. Or how about some Del Sol color changing polish for your fingers. Every time you are in the sun and they change color it is a fantastic reminder of the fun in the sun you had in the Outer Banks. Even in winter, when you are exposed to sunlight, you can get a “warm” feeling as the products change color and remind you of that warm fun summer day at the beach.

Keep Your Outer Banks Family Memories With Sand Art

Use Sand Art to Make Your Baby’s First baby memories outer banksOuter Banks Beach Memories

Babies should learn to love the beach too, but first memories probably won’t be of sand and surf. If you want a keepsake for your little one to remember, come on over to Life on a Sandbar and check out our unique sand art. Your little one can make an art project that will bring joy for years to come.

A Rainy Outer Banks Day? No Problem!

Beach vacationers don’t have control of the weather, and that is why we are more than just a retail store providing what you need for a sunny day at the beach. We also offer fun activities for families indoors for when the weather refuses to cooperate with your vacation plans.

Infants may not have enough hair to get hair wraps and braids yet, but there are plenty of other enjoyable activities. Stepping stones and other forms of sand art are perfect for little ones because the texture of the sand and stones are perfect for tiny hands. The bright colors also attract a child’s attention.

Young Kids and Older Kids Love Arts and Craftssand art for kids outer banks

Even infants can create sand art by pressing their tiny hands into the sand. Hand or footprint art can also be colored with shells and stones, producing a family keepsake that will be enjoyed by all. Babies don’t stay little forever, but those hand or footprints will stay the same with time, making a perfect memory for mom or perhaps grandma.

Whether you need a place to get out of the rain or just want to drop in to create your keepsake, Life on a Sandbar is your Outer Banks destination. And don’t forget to bring the older kids in for hair braids and wraps that can add a touch of style to your coastal getaway.

What About Toddlers..

Entertaining a toddler, even in a town overflowing with fun like the crafts for toddlers in the outer banksOuter Banks can sometimes present a challenge. Bring them to Life on a Sandbar in Nags Head and entertain them for a while. At our toddler friendly environment, your boy or girl can make sand art or wood art creations. Beads, shells, and sounds stimulate their imagination. And most importantly, it keeps those little hands busy doing something constructive.

Dog Art in the Outer Banks?

Maybe the family dog is with you. Dogs love to go places, but not many places will accommodate them. We have things for them to in our Corolla or Nags Head locations. We can braid your pooch’s hair. They can make dog art with their paw. If you want something more elaborate we can take a cast of the dogs paw as a fun reminder of the trip the ENTIRE family made to the Outer Banks
