I was so excited when I was contacted to review the Martha Stewart's Favorite Crafts for Kids book. Oddly enough, the day I received the e-mail asking if I was interested in reviewing it, I had just got done Googling "things to do with the kids" and how to cure the "I'm bored's" and the "there's nothing to do's" yup I Googled those things and perused good ol' Pinterest but couldn't find any ideas using things we already had in the house.
So would I be interested in reviewing this book was the question. My answer was "YES-PLEASE!!"
I looked through this book for the first time with the kids and they really wanted to try something right away. They were curious about this one:
So we tried it!
I forgot how much fun this stuff was. I played too and we made a mess but it was all in the name of fun... and science which was pretty cool too.
Both my kids couldn't get enough of the book, I found Sweet Girl on the floor of the bedroom with the book open to this page:
And she was surrounded by these little guys!
Little Man needed a turn too - I found him and a friend in the sun room with the book open, they were looking at these:
And the room was covered with these- this is just a sample stack.
And we have a lot more pages bookmarked and supplies to purchase. Also, we are really enjoying the new crafts for kids video collection, you need to check that out as well.
I think this a great book and I am super excited because I get to offer one lucky reader a copy of the book as well as some fun surprises from the Martha Stewart Crafts collection.
I was provided with a copy of Martha Stewart's Favorite Crafts for kids to review. All opinions are my own.
