Green Kid Crafts Giveaway! (closed)

 Have you heard of the new "kid" in town? Green Kid Crafts just started sending out their monthly craft kits! Imagine having a craft kit come to your mailbox just for your little one three times a month. You don't have to come up with the idea or go to the store, all that work is done for you! You get to sit down and enjoy doing the craft with your kid! I know my son LOVES getting stuff in the mail. Then on top of that something cool to do? Let's not forget it helps you out by entertaining your kids for awhile, bonus! Visit their site to learn more about the prices and what they offer.

Penny, co-founder of GKC, dropped some kits off at my house to give away and one for us to try! To the left is a picture of my son getting ready to open it, he is already excited!

It came with lots of fun stuff to add to the scrapbook, the only thing I needed to bust out was glue, scissors and pictures! Kaden wanted to do his visit to the zoo, cause he is ALL about animals, especially big cats.

It was funny cause I had to step back and allow Kaden to create. I wanted to jump in and tell him where to place things. " I can do it!" Yes, yes you can Kaden. I was excited too! In fact it made me want to break out my scrapbook! He wasn't really interested in all the fun stuff to add, he just wanted the paper and pics. The add ons were so simple but eye catching. Kaden wasn't bombarded by scrapbook add ons like at the store. Simple, sometimes I need that in my life.

It was a great time for him to work on his motor skills without even knowing it. Gluing and cutting, and he wasn't even in preschool!! See parents, sooo easy! And YOU don't even have to be crafty! Your kids do most of the work! Now if only he could pick up after himself without being told five times.

 He was so proud of his scrapbook. He asked me to write a title on it and then he showed it to grandma and daddy. We had to keep it up because little sister wanted it. He would close it up then look at it. He kept on doing this, it was so fun to watch.

Be sure to "like" Green Kid Crafts on Facebook to get ideas of crafts to do at home with supplies you probably already have! This would be a great birthday gift idea for a little one! Green Kid Crafts sends to the lower 48 as well!

  1. OOH! I want to try one so bad! The kit would go to either Babette or Fisher, depends on which one was the most excited about it. Or maybe I could actually get them to *gasp* do it together! :)

  2. This is such a great idea! I am SO not crafty at all. What a great idea for a mom to make these and sell them as packages.. love it. If I won I would use it for my son Lucas or wait until he is a little older and then try it, depending on what the craft was. :)

    I live in Alaska and follow you!

  3. Sounds like a fun weekday project to do while Daddy is at work! Lilah and I are just starting to do craft things together so this would be a great jump start!
