Creativity For Kids - Coloring & ARTivity Books - With A Giveaway!



Coloring is one of my toddler's favorite activities! We often use coloring in the craft activities that we do together, since it is an easy way for her to contribute and add her own little touch to the craft.

If you are a regular Ladybug Soup reader, you know how I love using Creativity For Kids products with my daughter. We have had the best experiences using crafts from Creativity For Kids, so I was really excited to see how they did with their Coloring & ARTivity Books, Crayons,
and Colored Pencils.



There are currently 18 different varieties of Coloring ARTivity Books with themes that will appeal to both boys and girls. You can choose a theme that also is geared toward your desired age group, with some activities perfect for the younger crowd (like my daughter) and also more advanced activities that would be perfect for a school aged Child.

Some of the Coloring ARTivity Books include designs & themes such as:

  • Sea Creatures
  • Ballet
  • Farms
  • Fairies
  • Wheels
  • Fashion
  • Horses
  • Robots
Inside these spiral bound books you will find different activities depending on which themed book you choose. A few examples are coloring sheets, mazes, paper dolls, connect the dots, stickers, puzzles, games, and so much more!


MY THOUGHTS:

I was able to choose an Coloring & ARTivity Book to review (along with the help of my daughter of course!) and I picked the Pretty Princesses Coloring & ARTivity Book. There were so many that I liked, but I eventually decided that this book had the best age appropriate activities for her...and she adores Princesses, so it worked out perfectly!





Along with the book, we received the 12 Jumbo Triangular Crayons set and Colored Pencils so that she would be all set to color & create once the book arrived. The Crayons are non toxic and leave smooth marks, with no waxy build up. The shape is great for my daughter's little hands to grip and helps promote hand eye coordination. I thought the colors included in the box were great too, and appreciated that a light & dark version of both the green and blue were included. The Colored Pencils were also triangular, which prevented them from rolling off my Daughter's table! My pencils were colored EcoPencils, and were made from reforested wood. Like the crayons, these are non-toxic....a must for every Child.





The Book itself is made with high quality papers that work well with Faber-Castell Children's art Supplies like crayons, markers, oil pastels, colored pencils, and more! Each coloring book is spiral bound, which I LOVED!! I am sure other Moms understand the pain of coloring books not staying open because they are not spiral bound. the pages don't lay flat, and it can be frustrating for the Child (& Mom too!) Well, you will not have any problems when you use a Coloring ARTivity book from Creativity For Kids! I did notice that this book held my Daughter's attention longer than her other coloring books, and I think a part of that was because it was so easy for her to use, and comfortable to use as well.


Having Fun Coloring!



Some of the Stickers included in Our Book!






Our book also came with perforated pages so that I can easily tear out a sheet and proudly display it on our fridge :)

She drew this Princess - can you see her yellow crown? I was pretty impressed!




I also loved how affordable these Coloring & ARTivity Books are. Prices for ARTivity Books start at just $3.99!!They would make the perfect rainy day activity for your Child, or pair them with the crayons & colored pencils for the perfect Birthday Gift for all of those Birthday parties your Child will be going to this Spring & Summer!

Hi! It's hard to choose just one-- Faber Castell has such neat stuff-- but the _Ecology and Me_ ARTivity book really stands out.

I would love the Fun with Fashion Coloring & ARTivity Book (#6005)! I see it has ages 3-93...which is funny, because I was thinking this would be perfect for my daughter in college. A lot of the kids actually do color when they have down time. I think it's a stress-buster. Thanks for the review and giveaway!
