Let's see a show of hands...How many times throughout the week do you hear "I'm bored." or "There's nothing to do."? I'm willing to be that each and every one of you would raise your hand. Tell me I'm wrong.
(Ok, don't tell me that!)
I'm about to share some great crafty kits that will have your kids too busy to complain.
The first one that we worked on together was the Recycled Cardboard Zoo by Creativity For Kids.
I'm going to be honest with you, When I first opened the box I was feeling a little overwhelmed with all the pieces.
However, my fear suddenly turned into relief when I found out how easy each piece was to assemble.
The kit comes with everything you need to create an entire zoo.
(decorative paper, stickers, cardboard animal cut-outs, glue and markers)
Lions and Tigers and Bears OH MY!
The kids thoroughly enjoyed coloring each animal and setting up their zoo HOW THEY WANTED it set up.
I enjoyed watching their creativity flow.
The Recycled Cardboard Zoo is a great project on any day but would really be a sanity saver (for MOM!) on rainy days.
The project from start to finish took us approximately 2 hours to complete. The majority of the time was spent being "creative".
Oh, one more thing that I must note: The box/packaging that the product came in is fully recyclable. It is the base for our zoo and YES, you can color it too!
Here's our zoo...
A fun time indeed!
