Creativity for Kids Review

I love to anything creative for my kids. Giving my children the right tools to be creative is very important to me and I have found the perfect website to purchase these tools! Creativity for Kids is packed full of different craft kits, art kits and more! When I found out I would get the chance to review one of their items, I was beyond thrilled and I knew exactly what I wanted to review! First, let me show you some of the other goodies on their website and give you a little bit more information about this wonderful company!

Creativity for Kids was started in 1976 by Phyllis Brody and Evelyn Greenwald with an dream that their unique concept of enriching, open-ended creative activities would inspire children all around the world. Today Creativity for Kids reaches children in over 35 countries! Very impressive. I love that they encourage natural creativity.


Have a look at a few of their best-selling items! I already want the lip balm making kit all for myself!


I cannot wait for my little Violet to be old enough to do something as fun as this! I would have killed for a kit this fun as a child! This kit sells for $20.99 and includes everything you need to make 5 pots of lip balm! This would make for hours of fun and also great presents!



I know my three year old, Michael, would go crazy over this kit right now! How adorable is this? This kit literally comes with everything but the hands to put them in! It even comes with 3 fuzzy sock puppets so that you don't have to use old socks. This kit is $17.99.




This is so awesome! My son would go insane over this kit! It says ages 5 and up, but I think he would get a kick out of this now! Very creative for little guys. How awesome would they feel getting to decorate their own monster trucks? This kit is $25.99.


I chose the Young Artist Texture Paint Set for my review and this is also what I am giving away to one of you guys!



It comes with everything needed for very open-ended creative play! My son painted with this for hours the first time I tore it open. Have a better look at the brushes:




Each one is made out of foam, but they are textured(hence, the name of the kit!). My son went crazy over the black one that looks like tire marks. Boys will be boys, and my son LOVES his trucks. I had my own fun playing with the brush that is shaped like a flower. I love items that encourage the parents to get in there and have fun as well! The set also comes with a loopy brush and 2 other textured shapes. We got 20 pieces of paper and five shades of paint, as well as a bowl to mix in. I had a blast showing my son how to make the color green! This is a truly great kit for educational and very creative play. My son made tire marks and then ran to get his truck to drive over them! I know that my children love nothing more than for Daddy and Mommy to get in there and play right along with them and kits like these make it more than easy! This sells for $17.99 at the Creativity for Kids website!


We had a fabulous time reviewing this kit and I know I will be ordering tons more for birthdays and Christmas! These are exactly the kind of activities I plan on incorporating in my homeschool this Fall. These activities are what preschool should be all about!
