Well folks, our kids have been stuck at home for approximately 842 days now. Are your offspring bored yet? Mine are. Thankfully, we have a new and fantastic resource here in town to buy you a morning or afternoon of happy and contented children creating artwork that is beautiful and even a bit educational!
Eco Kids Village has put together themed kits full of super fun activities, and Stacy deliverd an Ocean Kit for my boys and me to check out. My kiddos are nine, five and a half, and three, and each of them enjoyed at least one of the activities included in our kit.
My eldest kiddo was immediately drawn to the cork raft craft. He was excited to follow the instructions and try floating his raft in the sink, and thrilled when it actually floated!
My middle kiddo was pumped about the salt-dough starfish. When I mentioned that someone had made the starfish just for him to paint, he about fell off his chair. Ha!
And my youngest (with a lot of my help) tackled the 'under the sea' scene.
After my two big kids were finished with their first choice, they moved on to the jellyfish activity and then to the matching game.
On top of being complete and ready to go (which is SO convenient), all of the activities were packaged so beautifully! The materials are all of a nice quality and oh so organized. Everything was so pretty and beach-y that it just made me want to throw everyone in the car and head for the coast. I think the best part of this Ocean Kit is how the activities could be stretched out or condensed to suit each individual kiddo.
We did most of the activities in one afternoon, but you could totally do one per day and stretch the fun waaaaay out. And, bonus! We found two projects that we didn't even notice until after the excitement of the crafts died down - a coloring sheet about the ocean zones as well as a simple, one page science experiment. What really impressed me about this whole kit is how intentional, cohesive, and well planned each of the projects was. She picked the best of the million ideas on Pinterest, prepped them for me, and dropped them on my porch. Eco Kids Village has found a forever fan and customer in my family!
