7/24/12: Creativity for Kids - Crafts for Boys and Girls

Contest Closed: Congratulations Missy for winning!
My kids love to do crafts.  We have been doing crafts since they were little so they get really excited every time I bring out the craft box and they get to make something creative.  One of my favorite companies for high quality craft products is Creativity for Kids Faber-Castell.  Read on and you could win one of these great crafts!
One of my favorite things about Creativity for Kids is that they cater to boys with crafts too.  In fact they have a whole Boy Zone on their website.  My son absolutely loves any type of vehicle and I can't tell you how excited he was to receive these Monster Trucks to paint and decorate.
 What little boy wouldn't love these!  This is what the set came with.  This set is only $19.99.
 Evan had such a wonderful time painting these.
 Here is the finished product.
 I was fortunate enough to meet one of the founders of Creativity for Kids when I was at Toy Fair.  I met Phyllis and it was inspiring to hear that she was a Mom just like me who was so busy at work and started this company with Evelyn from the ground up just by seeing a need.  She was so lovely to talk to and showcased all of their products.
We have been creating using these products for a long time.  We had created the Halloween Shrinky Dink Tree craft in 2009 and we put it out every year as a decoration.  Who didn't love Shrinky Dinks as a kid?  Creativity for Kids has a whole new line of items with Shrinky Dinks.  The kids love them.
Here are some of the other wonderful crafts I saw at Toy Fair.
 So many great crafts that turn in to great toys, decorations, or jewelry!
The other item I received was the Pop Art Necklace.
 Here is what is included.  The Bottle Cap looking pieces are made of plastic and totally safe for kids to create with.  The kids loved them.
 Lauren had such a wonderful time creating her necklaces.  You can also create bracelets and key chains.
 Here is a closer view of the bottle cap with the pop piece over it.
 Lauren stringing her beads.  With these you can either color in one of the inserts or use one that is already colored.  You could also put a picture in or anything you create on your own.
Of course Evan wanted to make necklaces too.
 Here they both are with their 3 creations.

We always keep a supply of construction paper on hand because they like to make paper dolls and snowflakes.
