Crafting fun with Ana and Green Kids Crafts!

Dear Readers:

  Ana and I love to craft, we make several things every week, and if we are not crafting, Ana loves to color, paint, play with play dough or crayons.  She has a sweet artist's easel and has already learned how to draw suns and flowers and write her name. We are working on the alphabet and her numbers, and though she can identify all of them, she is just starting to write them. She loves writing, and painting and crafting. So you can imagine how pleased I was that we were sent a cool box of Green Crafts from Green KIds Crafts. We opened the box together and the theme was perfect because we had just come back from Florida and the Beach: The Ocean.

The first thing we noticed was how nicely all of the crafts were packed. Each craft was in a sealed bag with all of the ingredients or necessities for that particular craft.  We looked through them all and decide we were going to start by making the boat.  Ana loves pirates and boats and so she really loved coloring it with the cool pastels included and then inserting the sail into the boat. I took lots of photos of us making the boat, but first I want to show you a quick , cute video we made too! 

This is the first craft we made:

Our experience:
   We really had a blast making our first two crafts together and we cannot wait to make more. I love that all of the included elements were green, recycled parts, and were easy to assemble. The cards had colorful illustrations, easy instructions, and made it easy to work with a toddler. I think this is a wonderful, thoughtful gift and would love to receive a subscription like this. Not only would l find it useful, but it would be a fun way to have new crafts integrated into our crafting routine regularly. We loved it.
