Win It Wednesday

Share

Whether we are ready or not, the Fall & Holiday seasons are steady approaching! I am already seeing the Halloween, Fall, & some Christmas stuff out in stores. I'm getting so excited as this is my favorite time of year. Not to mention it means I'm getting closer to meeting this little baby that has been fluttering around inside of me...due on December 23. :)

In preparation for Halloween, I would like to share a review & giveaway with you for a Halloween Craft from Creativity for Kids. Creativity for Kids has been around since 1976 & offers lots of fun craft kits & art supplies. Today I am reviewing & giving away the Shrinky Dinks Halloween Fun Kit. This quick and easy craft makes a spook-tacular Halloween decoration. Includes genuine Shrinky Dinks®, 11" x 8" sturdy black velvet tree, colored pencils, sharpener, mini hole punch and all the extras needed for decoration and display.

What we liked about the Shrinky Dinks Halloween Fun Kit:
1. Having never used Creativity for Kids' Products before, I enjoyed the fact that this was a family craft. My 3 year old even helped, even though a lot of it was out of his age range.
2. My kids loved it!
3. The age range printed on the box was ages 7-97 & it was accurate. My daughter is 7 & while she definitely had to have parental help on this, it was still good for a wide range of ages.
4. We all had a blast watching the paper we had just colored & cut out shrink & harden. That was cool for all of us to watch!
5. Lots of fun & will get you in a festive mood!
6. All supplies we need were in the box, except of course a cookie sheet & foil. ;)

The Shrinky Dinks after we colored, cut them out, & shrunk them in the oven...

What I didn't like about the Shrinky Dinks Halloween Fun Kit:
1. The instructions stated it included a pencil sharpener for sharpening the pencils because they would get dull coloring on the rough paper. My daughter & I actually had to sharpen a lot & the pencil sharpener was tiny so that was a bit frustrating.
