If you are looking for something to keep the kids entertained either in the car, on holiday or at home, then you can’t go past the Just Craft! Mega Craft Pack. The pack contains 4 different activities (which are also sold separately as DIY Craft Kits) and include foam mosaics, air-dry clay, a hand puppet and a fridge magnet. These activities have been specifically designed to keep little hands busy for up to 30 minutes and are suitable for children aged 4 to 10 years.
Create your own Mosaic Poster
This activity took the longest to complete and would be perfect for the car! It is simply a matter of placing the stickers on the spots to create a shiny mosaic poster!
Create your own Clay Model character
This activity was fun! There is step-by-step instructions, although you can be as creative as you wish. The clay dries without the use of ovens etc. but doesn’t dry so hard that it will smash like traditional clay, if dropped. It is like a hard foam that bounces – handy for avoiding tears! A word of warning: the different colours stick together very quickly so they don’t forgive you putting clay in the wrong spots.
Create your own hand puppet
This activity is very good for hand/eye coordination! It involves sewing (with a plastic needle) and stickers. We were worried how long the stickers would stay on the felt for but they have held up well. It is not a puppet that will last forever but your child will have fun with their new friend!
Create your own fridge magnet
The fridge magnet takes the least amount of time to complete! This is a 5 minute activity! Children can do it without any assistance (time for a cuppa in peace!).
Both Alegría and Isaac love hands-on interactive play and would much prefer this type of activity to technology based entertainment. As a parent, it’s the type of indoor activity that we encourage and there is always some sort of craft project on the go in the Kidding Around Australia house. The problem is, that some craft activities can be really messy (we’re looking at you GLITTER!) and often take more time to set up than to complete.
I love that every Just Craft! product is self-contained, which means no other items are required like glue or scissors. Everything your child needs is there in the pack and often the child can do the activity without the need of parental assistance!
The Mega Craft Pack retails for $19.95 and the individual kits all cost no more than $10 – and I have seen them on sale, so keep an eye out!
All Just Craft products are available nationally at Spotlight, Toys R Us & specialty toy stores.
