Creativity for Kids - Review & GIVEAWAY!


I love the brand Creativity for Kids.  My local Joanne's carries some of their kits and they are a go-to for me when it comes to children's birthday gifts.  So when I was contacted to do a review and giveaway of two Creativity for Kids kits of course I said yes.




When we received the box I opened it and pulled out this adorable dog house shaped box and my daughter automatically started jumping up and down and did that high-pitch sucking in noise that most young girls can do!  What comes in this fancy little Diva Puppies box?

 



3 pooches with paint, sequins, flowers, ribbons, heart charm collars, fur, boas and tutus. And when it is time for a nap each puppy has a soft furry bed to curl up on. Each bobble-head pup measures 5" x 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".  The age range on the box: 6 to 96!


These came right before my daughers birthday party at daycare so I sent it with her that day (no school!!)  The three kids that weren't napping were lucky enough to do this craft.


The kids (yes even the little boy had a great time) had a blast creating their little Diva Puppies.  There was plenty of paint and glitz for all three kids and the embellishments stayed on well with the glue. And no worries - these are not glass, they are a plastic material, so no worrying that things might break if played with!  Creativity for Kids has even put together an instructional video on YouTube for your viewing pleasure.


The second kit we received was the Create your Own Enchanted Storybook.  It is a super sweet castle shaped book for your little princess to record her own fairy tale.  The book comes ready to decorate with markers, glitter stickers, color-in-stickers and rhinestones. Open the drawbridge door and personalize the story with your name. You can add your picture to the tower window too!  The age range on the box: 5 to 95!

 

We are a book writing family so this really is a perfect gift for my kids.  My daughter will write and illustrate stories onto computer paper and then I spiral bind it with plastic covers.  Unfortunately if you handle these types of handmade books they tend to tear and rip.  Looking through the contents of this box I think this book will hold up.  It has a hard cover and the paper is a thicker gloss that will stand up to grubby little hands! 
 
We have not had the opportunity to use this book yet because it came during standardized testing, 5 birthdays and a weekend getaway for mom and dad!  I did tell my daughter to start brainstorming her story so that when we get a free moment she can start working on it.
 
So now that you know that these are kid friendly and kid approved you just have to have one of each for your own little girl, right?  Here is your chance to win a set! 
 
 TWO readers will win ONE OF EACH kit simply by leaving me a comment.  First visit the Creativity for Kids website and then come back here telling me your favorite product.
