To say that the kids were stoked that we received 3 #CreativityForKids craft kits in the mail MIGHT be a bit of an understatement. Faber-Castell Creativity for Kids offers the coolest craft kits on the planet and they have a huge selection! My kids were lucky enough to try some of them out. OK, so I might have played along too.
We received the Mossy Meadow Gnome Garden, the Deluxe Glitter Art Kit (our favorite..you might notice it sparkles a bunch), and the Tile Art Necklace Kit. We were so fabulously excited to get started. As you might imagine, we started with the sparkles!
The Creativity for Kids Deluxe Glitter Art Kit brought so much enjoyment to my family. Seriously…we had a sparkling good time!
When I opened the kit, the kids went wild. I loved that they played together and the kit engaged all 3 of them. You can’t put an age on glitter! There were cards, and treasure boxes, and gift tags, and lots and lots of sparkles. It was a beautiful thing and the kids and I enjoyed every moment of this activity!
Bubby found the sparkles…and it was ON!
And by on, I mean, ON EVERYTHING! Thank goodness I laid out that blanket.
And Bug’s creation was beautiful but not as beautiful as the fun and bonding they experienced. Creativity for Kids helped us create beautiful keepsakes and memories.
The girls were especially excited about this one because they are always making jewelry. We liked the outcome and the overall quality of this kit. It came with everything needed to make these necklaces, even scissors. The colors are vibrant and the patterns are wonderful. I do need to point out that we ended up using our own glue because the glue and 2-sided tape provided in the kit didn’t work very well for us. Once we figured that out, everything went beautifully and the girls enjoyed their crafting time together and are excited to make more. The kit comes with enough supplies to make 8 trendy necklaces.
Bug is a little young for this kit (ages 8 to 98) so her big sister did most of the work.
Bug had fun working the tile.
Here’s Bug’s final project. Came out cute, don’t you think? She’s so proud!
The one thing Bubby is looking most forward to, we haven’t even gotten to yet. You see, here in The Woods, it’s either been way too hot or stormy for us to play with our Mossy Meadows Gnome Garden kit.
We are so excited about this. In the coming weeks, we will be painting and planting! Soon, it will cool off a bit and hopefully it will stop raining. We could do this inside, but you saw how the sparkles went. Please understand, dirt and paint inside might not go over well on our light carpet! For us, this is an outdoor activity, and Bubby and I will more than likely partake in this activity when the girls are at school as a fun learning lesson for him.
This is Bubby’s favorite character and I have a feeling he will be front and center in our garden. Stay tuned for updates. We will be sure to share how our garden grows!
Overall, we loved these kits and I encourage you to check out Creativity for Kids. They provide hours of fun for your kids and you to enjoy. And guess what? I have an awesome surprise for YOU!
