Creativity For Kids Review & Giveaway




We have done a review for Creativity For Kids before with the Little Artist Texture Paint Set. This time we were sent the Beach Buddies Shell Craft
Avery is a little young for this project so I helped her and first we did those 3 big shells that our Hermit Crabs can use
\
Aren't they pretty?? Once they dried I flipped them over and painted the bottom portion too.
Those 3 little ones there on the left I then attached to the felt and made little critters. After that I put it away and I'm saving it until Next year so Avery can do it herself. I did a little big now though so I could give an accurate review

The paint was nice. It wasn't too thick or too thin. We used a little tiny brush and just the right amount was on the brush. The glue that came with it was good. It seemed runny and like the shells wouldn't stick but they did. The shells stuck on the felt with the glue with no problem. The googly eyes stuck onto the shells too. 

It also came with glitter, but I didn't use any of that. Overall this was a fun craft that I think Avery will enjoy later on. I would say a child under 5 or so won't be able to do this craft. But I will try it with Avery when she's maybe 4-4 1/2! 

Our crabbies haven't gotten into our shells yet. They are all in the cage, but haven't switched. However 2 crabs just molted so they will probably switch shells once they are done molting. I will then share a picture. Those painted shells go for $5.99 EACH at PetSmart.

Price: The Beach Buddies is $16.99 and so worth it. I think this could provide hours and hours of fun for kids!

Overall: ***** nice craft
