When I find something that I love, I feel compelled to share it with others who may love it too. While messing around the other day, I ran across an Etsy store called Smart Bottom Kids (and with a name like that you know it has to be good right?)
The shop owner, Darcy, puts together craft kits for you and your kids to do together. Darcy is a former elementary teacher and has a seven and a five year old (kind of like me 🙂 so one would think she’s pretty much a genius when it comes to small child craft kits). (Turns out she is.)
I ordered the Christmas Ornament Banner. It was a little pricier than I would normally spend on a craft, but I love to support Etsy shops and I love to do crafts with my chiddlers. I don’t relish the setting up and cleaning up part though. I was hoping the kit would take care of the setting up.
I wonder if Darcy would come and take care of the cleaning up too…
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I quickly got the kit in the mail. She said all would need is scissors, but is that really all I would need?
A great big resounding YES!
The kit came with everything clearly labeled in nifty little packets. Even the craft sticks were labeled “glue spreader”. Her proportions were extremely generous, we would actually have enough sparkles and decorative paper left to make an entirely different garland, all I would have to do is cut out the ornament shapes.
It was perfect for two children–it came with 2 each of several ornament shapes.
It was also the perfect size craft for them–they were almost to their crafting limit by the time they finished their last ornament. It was also wonderfully sparkly, and especially for the five year old, whose favorite color is “glitter”, this was another perfect.
This guy helped by playing nicely in his chair and
also finding, and subsequently, emptying, my wallet; having a dirty diaper; getting into other various and sundry mischief.
I originally hung it here,
but then we moved it to the archway.
( I am just posting this review because I want to, not because I’ve been asked to or given anything free ;-))
