I really love things that allow my kids to be creative, but it is also important that they be safe and not destroy the house, so traditional crafts(using scissors, glue, paint, etc) tend to not be such a smooth operation.
Thankfully, I found something that embodies everything I look for in my kids' activities. text-Ur Foam is so cool.
I loved that I had an animal for each kiddo, otherwise they would have fought(more than they did). I helped my little girl make the bee.
I love that this is something that my son can do on his own if he wants, but is also great for us to do together as a family. Family bonding is so important, so anything that allows us to be still and quite is the perfect activity to talk. And the creative nature allows us to show one another our ideas and personal style.
Not only that, but the fabulous things you create can be on display in your home to show off your unique style. They also make great gifts for teachers, grandparents, etc. Kids love to give away pictures and other craft projects, text-UR Foam is perfect for that.
It may seem a bit early to be thinking about the holidays, but text-Ur Foam would make a fabulous stocking stuffer or modest gift. Perfect for any child on your list. Everyone needs ideas for friends' kids, children's classmates, etc. text-UR Foam would be a huge hit.
I love this stuff. It is so great to have a safe and quite activity that my kids really love.
text-UR Foam is available at Michaels, Joann's, Meijer, and A.C. Moore and is super affordable. It is priced for only $2.99-$8.99, so it is perfect for big fun on a small budget.
