A crafty way to entertain the kids

It’s no secret that our boys are crazy about Minions!

photo (2)This week we’ve been trialing Just Craft’s range of DIY craft kits for kids aged 4 – 10 years old.  Each activity is designed to keep little hands busy for up to 30 minutes and because they are all inclusive sticker based kits – you don’t need scissors or glue.  And there’s NOT a speck of messy glitter in sight!

The kits came onto our radar because they are light to transport and looked fun enough to engage the boys. They love anything with a Minion on it!

The boys started using the kits self-directed. They come with easy to follow steps that are picture graphics (think LEGO instructions). The only time we had to step in and help was to thread wool through a plastic needle and give them a tutorial on what to do.  These skills will no doubt come in handy later in life where as men, they’ll sew their own buttons and mend their own socks – I live in hope. 😉

Our favourite kits to make were the ‘Create Your Own Foam Friend’ and ‘Create Your Own Minion Puppet’. These kept bums on seats – a win for us!   The boys put on a puppet show once they were made, which was an added bonus – not to mention cute!!!

We think these craft kits are great for roadtrips, plane flights and eating out with kids. We’d definitely recommend families add them to their suitcase when planning a trip.

Just Craft products are available nationally at Spotlight, Toys R Us & specialty toy stores, along with online via Rainbow Fun.

No kit is over $10 so the price is pretty good. In my opinion it’s money well spent for a little non-screentime fun.
