Creativity for Kids Art Kits - Review & Giveaway


Faith is really into the crafty fun things right now, so when we go the opportunity to review a few of the Creativity for Kids art kits, she was a more than willing participant.  And since we were on summer break, craft kits were the perfect diversion for those lazy at-home days.

Creativity for Kids sent us three kits to try out--the Mossy Meadows Gnome Garden, the Deluxe Glitter Art, and the Feather Fashions Kits.  We've been having a great time trying the three of them out.



The Creativity for Kids Mossy Meadows Gnome Garden might be my favorite, simply because of the gnomes.  It includes a large shallow dish that can grow grass seed to make your own little garden for the included gnomes.  Of course, the gnomes shouldn't live in grass alone, so they have a little gnome house, a little gnome pond, mossy rocks, stones you can paint, and toadstools to decorate.  We've got the very beginnings of grass seeds sprouting, so hopefully we'll have some awesome gnome gardens going on soon.

The Creativity for Kids Deluxe Glitter Art was a lot of fun as well.  Since it did involve glitter, it made for a great outside project.   Glitter pens, glue, stickers, etc, along with notepads, cards and trinket boxes, were perfect for making gifts for her friends.

The Creativity for Kids Feather Fashions was a hit with Faith and her friend.  The kit came with enough feathers and accessories to make at least a dozen hair clips, decorated with feathers and rhinestones, and we still have some left to make a few more.



Would you like to win a few kits of your own?  Creativity for Kids is letting me give away two more kits, another Deluxe Glitter Art kit and a Beach Buddies Shell Crafts kit.  Just leave me a comment below, telling me what your favorite crafts were as a kid!  Contest is open until 7-September-2012, winner will be picked via Random.org!

I received free products as part of a promotional program with MomSelect. All opinions expressed are my own. are my own.

  4. As a kid I loved painting - brush painting, finger painting, splatter painting, etc. I wasn't a stay inside the lines type of kid. I like to be given large paper and allowed to do whatever I wanted.

  6. I would love to win a craft kit!! My daughters and I have always loved all kinds of crafts. When I was young I liked making potholders, latch hook, and cross stitch. My girls love anything with glitter and lots of color! One of them is crocheting herself into a blanket cocoon!

  18. Well, I was more of a reader as a kid, but when I did do arts and crafts it was likely to be coloring and cutting out bits and pieces of craft paper
