During the Blow-a-Bubble experience, guests 9 and older blow a large, clear glass bubble, which they can upgrade with color ($7.50+) or a twist ($14). Alternatively, artisans of any age press their handprint or footprint into a medium box in the QuickCast experience, then glassworkers fill the cast with glass for a fun decoration. Both experiences take place during Hot Sand’s walk-in hours: Friday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., or Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Finished products are usually ready for pickup in a week; shipping is available for an additional fee.

Hot Sand’s studio buzzes with activity as instructors dip pipes into molten glass and then demonstrate how to blow the globs into recognizable shapes. Nearby, other students work on finishing their pieces, refining contours atop wooden blocks and polishing surfaces on a diamond wheel. Hot Sand's glass-blowing artists impart these techniques through basic walk-in experiences and immersive workshops, showing guests how to craft objects such as candy dishes, pumpkin-shaped ornaments, or one-time-use dodgeballs. Welcoming visitors of all ages, Hot Sand earned the distinction as a top kids' destination in New Jersey Monthly's 2012 Jersey Choice awards. The studio also expands the aesthetic tastes of the community through a gallery that showcases original works for sale.

The Groupon Guide to: Spicing Up a Monologue
Monologues are the most boring part of plays since they only involve a single performer and that single performer is never an adorable baby actor. To make these seemingly unending passages more interesting, follow these helpful tips:
Do something interesting with your voice. You could give your character an accent or, if you can't do a convincing accent, just yell the entire time.
Cut out all the unnecessary words, such as articles and any full sentences that don't foreshadow how the main character is a group of children hiding inside a man's suit.
Wear a funky hat or rad loafers. That'll give the audience something to look at!
Perform it with multiple people and tell the director you're going to start calling it a fun-o-logue.
Start at the end of the monologue and work backward. Then when you finish, tell the audience that they just got Pranked'd™. (If you're interested in buying the rights to use the name Pranked'd™, probably for a hilarious hidden-camera goof show, please contact Groupon for more information.)
