I don’t know about you guys, but when it comes to crafting, I’m all for it.
As long as it happens somewhere else.
Not crafty by nature, I breathed a huge sigh of relief when preschool rolled around and my kid could cut out play-dough shapes and finger paint to her heart’s content — without me.
I’m still not that into crafting with kids, even though I’ve certainly got some receipts from the Giant Craft Supply Store that say otherwise. I do it, dutifully, but I always cringe when I think about cleaning up the mess afterward.
When the fine folks at Bendaroos offered to send me a box for my kids to try out, I said yes, please and thank you. Emmie asks for Bendaroos about 1,000 times a day, usually after she sees one of those “As Seen on TV” pitches for them.
Bendaroos are great for two reasons: One, kids love them and, two, there is no mess to clean up.
Oh, and they are also super-fun and let kids get super-creative. The website has some great suggestions for ways to use them, both for parents, and for educators. Emmie loves hers, and she’s would like to share them with you!
That last part was a bit of a fib — if she knew there was another set of them to be had she might not want to share.
But the fine people Bendaroos DO want to share them with you! One lucky winner will be chosen at random and Bendaroos will send you one of these babies:
A 500-piece Mega Pack of Bendaroos, valued at $19.99, just for you!
