For the month of February CraftProjectIdeas is sharing the love with special giveaways and promotions on their site.
They so kindly offered to send us 2 of their new craft kits geared towards boys. So we had to check them out!
They are complete kits that your kid(s) and you can completely assemble and play with! I've said before that my boys appreciate a craft that actually DOES something after you are done. Since these are wood and use wood glue before I even read the instructions I figured that there would be waiting involved so I warned the boys ahead of time. (I find that to be very helpful) I also planned to start on it when we were going to be in and out of the house so we would work on it in bits and pieces.
The Rubber Band Launcher was completed first and the boys loved it as I knew they would (it doesn't launch them too hard since the rubber bands that come with the kit are larger but we still had the conversation about what you aim/launch at). They liked knocking down the paper figures that came with the kit and later moved on to Lego Darth Vader, Playmobil, and anything else they could set up.
We worked on the Catapult Wars set also but see this extra little head here?
Yeah she grabbed ALL the wooden dowels we needed to finish the kit and chewed them up. Just keeping it real ;)
We haven't gotten a chance to get to the store to pick the correct sized ones up yet but they boys are itching to try. It looks super fun. We'll finish it up this week and post our final review!
I didn't want to hold up giving 1 set away to 2 different readers though!
