Green Kid Craft Creativity Kit
Little Miss loves to do crafts. Which is great! What isn't so great is the fact her mama is not a very crafty homeschool mama. Fortunately there are companies like Green Kid Craft, who specializes in putting together mama-friendly craft kits, like this Backyard Science Discovery Box we are reviewing today.
These discovery boxes have won a variety of awards including Dr. Toy's Best Green Products of 2013, PTPA Seal of Approval, a recommendation from Parents' Choice, MACT Excellence and MACT Green Awards and Red Tricycle's Award for Most Awesome Subscription Service.
The Backyard Science Discovery Box comes with three crafts to make. You can decorate a fabric bag, create a leaf pendant, make a nature sun print, and design a shadow box. We chose to decorate the fabric bag for this review.
The kits are designed for children ages 3-8 (Little Miss is seven).
Little Miss was super excited, and couldn't wait to get started! In fact, we did our first discovery craft the day we picked up our package from the post office (our camp is rural).
The discovery box had everything needed for this craft, except tape to tape the plastic leaf mold inside the bag (so it wouldn't move around during the rubbing technique). I helped Little Miss with the taping, but she did everything else by herself.
Spreading out for a fun activity! If you look carefully, you can see an open snack bag near the candle (top of photo). Little Miss loved the healthy apple snack that came with the craft - and mama thought that was a nice addition to the kit.
Such beautiful vibrant colors!!!
After Little Miss was done, I ironed the bag with a piece of paper on top of it.
Well done, Little Miss! Your bag is gorgeous!!!
