monday's mom {review & a giveaway} CLOSED

A few weeks ago I was asked if I would
like to review & host a giveaway for
 Creativity for Kids' 
{Winner of The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval
& FunFare- All Stars Award}
A $19.99 value!
I couldn't e-mail back fast enough with a "YES, I'd love to!"
{The BeSt news of all, TwO lucky Ginger Snaps followers will be receiving one, too.  Wahoo!}


{Just so you know, I was given a Shrinky Dinks Monster Lab to review,
I was not compensated in any other way & all opinions are completely mine &/or my kiddos. :)}


Yes, my kiddos were super excited when this box arrived in the mail. 

It was stuffed full with the following:
50+ pre-cut Shrinky Dinks
assorted chenille stems
craft glue
assorted foam character stands
clear plastic character stands
wiggly eyes
jump rings
double-sided foam squares
double-sided sticky dots
Faber-Castell color EcoPencils
pencil sharpener
brads
3-D pop-up playscape {measures 16" x 7 3/4" x 6"}
& very detailed instructions


As most of you know I have 5 kiddos.  Ages almost 2 to 14.
This was a good nap time project to do while my little man was asleep.
As the box states it's for ages 7 to 97. So not a good project for the little ones,
but perfect for my 4 older kiddos age 4, 8, 10 and 14. :)
Love that there were plenty of shrinky dinks to go around.
{I even got to color some.  Wahoo! :)} 


My kids laid out the kind of monster they wanted to make.
Then they colored, colored, colored. :)


Now the fun part!  Little man was even awake for this!
We put them in the oven & watched them shrink!
So cool!  They even saved one to shrink when Dad got home. ;)
We didn't want him to miss out!


Here's our finished Monster Lab.





This was an {awesome} summer time craft project to do with the kiddos.
Loved, loved, loved it!  So fun!
