Creativity for Kids and Mother's Day

It's that time of year that all mothers love... a day to celebrate us (aka Mother's Day)!  We work hard but it has lots of rewards when we see our children being kind, doing creative things and showing independence.  All the things we try to teach them in order to be productive citizens.   I was thrilled when I got this kit to create alongside my kids.

What's Creativity for Kids?  Creativity for Kids is our sister brand, specializing in activity products for children.  We thought we'd pair up with them for Mother's Day because our products marry perfectly well with each other.

DSC00486We tore into the package and the kids had ideas right away!  There are so many pieces included in this set that you could make lots of projects with it! 
DSC00494Our first project was making spinning "helicopters"... my oldest was set on this task.  He started picking out pieces and beads.  I got my Crop-a-Dile out and punched holes in the wood pieces easily.  We threaded them on sticks and pipecleaners.  They were super happy with this!

DSC00488Concentration at it's best... he was determined!

DSC00489My youngest made a car like on the box and then they were gluing popsicle sticks together to make frames. With 2 little boys, this is the longest we've sat and focused on a task!  YAY!

Here they are gluing the pieces together.

DSC00495Now onto coloring the pieces.  We used Gelatos because they are very kid friendly and fun!  Then we also drew on them with PITT Journaling pens!   This was about all they could sit and do... then they were off to something else! Well, at least we completed a couple projects with the kit.

Here are some of our finished projects.  I tried to get them to hold them up for me but they were too busy playing another game.  It was tons of fun to create with this kit and I know we will save the rest of the pieces for a rainy day this summer and create more art! 

To win this Classic Wood Craft kit and a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft prize pack (Blue Gelatos pack, and Journaling PITT Artist Pens), leave a comment here about what you'd make with this kit and who you would share it with.  

The winner  will be announced on May 10th.

I think my grandson would like to make the spinning helicopter.

I have nieces & nephews that love to build & paint. I can see them making airplanes, trucks, robots, necklaces.....

I would definately use this with my grandkids,and just see what they come up with.A couple of them are very crafty.Thanks so much for the great giveaway! "Happy Spring"

I think my husband's 2 grandsons would love this, so I'd share with them. Thanks for the chance.

This would be hours of entertainment for my girls...I think we could do some Father's and Grandparents day gifts with it. Thanks for the chance to win!

My boys love to build things, so I am sure they could come up with a lot of great ideas!! But for sure the cute picture frames.

Another fabulous kit! My kids would love it and I would love to get my hubby involved too he is a wood enthusiast but not much into the craftsy stuff, this will be perfect to introduce him to our crafty world ;)
Thanks for the chanc!

How cute those boys are! I'm sure my 6 year old daughter and I would have a blast, we could build a gingerbread house! I've always wanted to do that! Thanks for the chance to win! I really have been dying to try those Pitt pens!

What a great craft for boys! It would be wonderful for girls, too, because they can make just about anything. And thank you for the chance to win. I love FC products.

The beads would be great for my niece to use. She is very artistic, and would paint great little animals on them. She would also like to make a frame, no doubt, for her dog's photo. Don't you love to see kids creating?
