Creativity For Kids: Our Valentine Fun & A Giveaway (Winner's Choice Of Kit!)


One of my favorite companies to work with has to be Creativity For Kids! They make a huge selection of kids crafts & activities, all in a convenient kit that comes with all of the necessary supplies. My daughter and I have had the chance to try out a couple of different kits, and they have each been so much fun! My daughter loves to do crafts and enjoys seeing what we can create together.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, earlier in the month we got to make the Shrinky Dinks I Heart You Cards. This adorable Kit came with everything we needed to make friend's & family some cute Valentine's!


Kit Includes:


12 Cards

Envelopes
Ribbon
Colored Pencils
Shrinky Dinks Film

We have made Shrinky Dinks together before, and my daughter remembered the steps to making them. First we colored the Shrinky Dink Film, which had designs like hearts, butterflies, candies, flowers, and sweet sayings like 'I Love You' Then we baked them in the oven for a few minutes, and my daughter watched them 'dance' and change size! This is always a fun part for the kids!

Then we got to decorate our cards! I let her choose what color card she wanted to do first, and which ribbon we should pair with it. Then I stuck the Shrinky Dink in the middle of the card, and she colored the inside.

MY THOUGHTS:

I thought this kit was a really fun way to celebrate the Holiday! 12 cards was just enough for a kid her age, we made them for members of our family. She was so excited and so proud of herself when she handed them out!

As a Parent, I appreciate that Creativity For Kids actually gives you everything you will need to crate the project. When our Colored Pencils got wore down, I found that they had included a pencil sharpener in the Kit! They thought of everything! The directions are also very clear and easy to follow, which is great when you are reading them to older children.

Now that my daughter is closer to three, she is becoming more involved with the crafts that we do. And Creativity For Kids has such a huge selection of activities, I know we will be using them for years & years to come!

CHECK OUT A FEW OF THE GREAT PRODUCTS AVAILABLE AT CREATIVITY FOR KIDS!



These Kits are great for everyday craft/play time to use with your kids...and they also make a great Birthday Gift! Some of the kits also include projects that could be done with a group of Kids, so they would be great for a Playdate or for a Party Activity!

BUY IT:

Kits start at about $10.00 and can be purchased online or you can use their store locater to find a retail location near you!
