GIVEAWAY and Review: Green Kids Crafts (3 projects!)



This was such fun review for my daughter & I. We were gifted with  a month subscription to Green Kids Crafts (one LUCKY reader will also win a free month with 3 crafts) that included 3 crafts for us to complete. Our subscription included Mermaid Puppets, Wooden Dragonflies and a Weather Board. Click here to see some of the sample crafts and tell me which one you are most interested in!






The Mermaid Puppets was the first craft that my daughter wanted to check out.

The project was the perfect skill level for her. Of course, we are avid crafters so other who are not such avid crafters or are younger crafters may need additional assistance.

This particular set included everything we needed to make two mermaid puppets and all we needed was glue, a marker (to draw on a face) and scissors. The kits come with instructions that tell you any additional supplies you need, which I find very helpful. Pretty much the only assistance my daughter needed was suggesting the steps in order to her so that she could make it.

What I most enjoyed about these craft kits is that I did not need to purchase the supplies and have a lot of leftover supplies and I did not need to plan out the activity. I simply needed get out a few things we needed (like markers, clue & scissors.)

This was the second craft we made: The Wooden Dragonflies. The kit included supplies to make 2 large and 2 small dragonflies ("a whole family" as my daughter said). Included were 4 large craft sticks, 4 small craft sticks, 4 clothespins, colored sand and 8 googly eyes. The additional supplies needed for this markers or paint to decorate the dragonflies and glue.

The project actually called for the wings to be glued on, but my daughter had the idea to slide the wings in the clothespin, which would allow for her to swap wings and change up her dragonflies when she wanted.

We had also thought that we might like to add magnets to the back so that we can put them up on refrigerator.
