I know all you mamas out there are trying your best to help your kiddos cope with the new restrictions and fears that we all are experiencing. At this point, I’m looking for any way at all to eliminate some of those worries, and I am so thankful I had some educational fun stashed away from Creativity for Kids.
Toys & Games
I’ve said it for years and I’ll say it again: Corolle dolls aren’t just any old baby doll – they are best friends. The snuggle of a Corolle doll has gotten my kids through all their childhood fears and the baby dolls they fall in love with remain beloved friends even after they grow out of the typical doll stage. Now, more than ever, we need simple pleasures and the reminder that things will be okay again
Our treasure hunting days were almost over, but they have been revivved thanks to Minelab metal detectors. After meeting with the Minelab team at CES, I knew I had found the solution to all of our treasure hunting woes of the past with the new GO-FIND 66.
My kids love literally everything about Modarri cars: the way they move and allow the kids to “drive”, the way you can take them apart over and over again, and the way you can build whatever you want with all the Modarri parts. And, now they love that they can create their own custom cars with the Modarri Configurator.
We love when doll accessories are also toys the kids can play with – even without the dolls. Such is the case with Julie’s new Pinball Machine from American Girl that actually works. It’s amazing fun to play with, even without a doll in sight.
Learn coding and take over the world. Or at least, be employable in the next twenty years. This new toy from Tech Will Save Us makes learning block coding so fun and easy that a mom could do it. I mean a kid. A kid could do it.
These kits seem like toys at first glance with their bright colors and cardboard housings. But, these are real musical tools that kids can utilize to learn the basics of music, layering, and even a bit about musical theory. I bet you will be surprised by the kinds of music your kiddo can create with just a few DIY kits.
With a growing Modarri collection that includes race cars, sport cars, street cars, concept cars, and off road cars amongst other things, I honestly thought we were done being wowed by Modarri. But, then we heard about the newest Modarri cars, the Monster Truck series.
It’s such a rewarding feeling when you find a project that your child really clicks with, and this kit from Creativity for Kids is definitely on that list. My little one was so into the placing of the gems for her unicorn project that she spent hours perfecting her piece and I had to convince her to stop working on it each time we had to end craft time.
This week we happened upon Crystal Creatures from Mega Construx and I already knew we were done for. I mean, it’s mystical creatures that you BUILD and it has some sort of reference to crystals. My kids were so in. So, I let the kids each pick out a mystery egg, and then a bonus extra one for when we inevitably ended up with a duplicate. Mom of the Year, right?
