Creativity for Kids...Activity Kit Giveaway!

Oh yes, do I have the most perfect giveaway for you today!  Just in time for summer...and kids crying of boredom...and parents everywhere ready to pull their hair out!



I was sent the Sparkling 3D Paint Activity Kit to review from Creativity for Kids a few weeks ago and when I received it Noah and Penny were dying to rip it open and get started.  

I admit I was pretty excited to get started too, I love a good crafty project for kids and this one even was awarded the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval...how's that for a good!  You can learn more about their quality children's products on their Facebook page here if you'd like!



It's a pretty sweet kit and would be great for kids of all ages.  It contains all you need to make your own glittery window art, 3D creations and more!  Just look at all the paint colors that are included to get you started.



The kit comes with loads of traceable pattern sheets and protective sleeves so that you can keep re-using them. To get started, all you do is trace along the outside of your picture of choice (they suggest using the black or gray paint to outline but Noah just went for the colors!) and then slowly fill it in with more paint, easy peasy!



You can even add googly eyes and rhinestones to your creations, which are also included in the kit as well as ribbon and stretchy cord to hang your artwork.  




We chose to turn our artwork into suncatchers (pieces to do so are included in the kit) and Noah and Penny had an absolute blast painting them!



Always in awe of her big brother, so cute!



When you are done creating all you have to do is wait until they are dry.  Ummm, can you tell which ones Penelope did :-)



Waiting can be so hard when you are two!  :-)



Once they are dry, just peel them off the protective sleeve and admire your beautiful work!



Can you see all the glitter-y goodness in that fish?


Okay, so on to the giveaway!!

Creativity for Kids is giving away one kit each to TWO lucky winners, awesome!  Each kit is valued at $21.99.

To enter (which you may do up to 3 times):
