4 educational and entertaining crafts all in one box! I personally loved the colorful box – instantly tells me there’s going to be some super-fun crafting in there. 😉
I love how all the activities came individually bagged! This always makes it a breeze to follow through without getting overwhelmed.
STEAM theme of the month! I am all about STEAM-related toys and activities for my girls, so I was pretty excited about this one.
Each activity also had its’ individual information sheets (printed on a very glossy/thick paper, so no chance of it getting ripped out ;)) Estimated craft time was also listed on each sheet so you can easily plan around it. Another thing I really appreciated is the size and the type of font used throughout the information sheets – it’s easier for older kids to read and just more fun to look at. 🙂
Bonus questions, activities, and fun facts were also listed on the back of each of the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math sheets.
Let’s get started with our STEAM fun! 🙂
Knowing my girls and how excited they were about seeing modeling clay, we just had to jump right into our science-y project. 🙂
Time to learn about the Earth, Moon and the Sun and how they all work. Using 1/8th of Blue & Yellow Model Magic Clay, we created our green clay.
And rolled the blue clay to form Earth! Next, we used the green model magic to represent the 7 continents and placed them on our blue ball aka Mother Earth.
Our wobbly Mr. Sun.
And the white model magic was used to create the moon – using the included toothpicks, we finished our project by placing all on the styrofoam ready to be displayed. My 4-year-old had a ball of a time learning about the continents, solar eclipse, and lunar eclipse. 🙂
Learning about technology facts in a very preschooler-friendly manner such as the fact that an adjustable alarm clock came 60 years after the very first alarm clock.
For our technology project, we had to build a laptop and understand all that goes inside a computer.
We started off by cutting out all the pieces of the computer and gluing the base of the computer onto the cardboard.
Folded the cardboard in half and started applying all the cutouts one by one to form the final look of our laptop screen! My kiddo loved this activity and it gave her a chance to understand the various components that go inside the computer.
Another one of our favorites! While the concept of engineering itself is a bit complicated for a 4-year old to understand, the craft around it was surprisingly easy and super fun to play with.
The goal of this craft was to engineer a race track for your marble! This was also a great way to get some open-ended learning done since you can have so many different versions of the “race” track!
Trying to get the marble to follow the race track she made. Perfect exercise to practice concentration and dexterity. 🙂
My 4-year-old loves coloring and practically anything related to art, however, this might have been a bit more advanced for her. Nonetheless, it would be a perfect activity for the older kids (5+).
I drew around Ms. Mona to complete the provided picture and my little one colored and doodled around. 🙂
Time to get our math facts right with a super fun, hands-on counting game using pipe cleaners and beads.
We used the pipe cleaners to form numbers as the instructions pointed out and then used the same amount of beads on each number to reinforce counting and math.
What an educational month by Kids’n’Craftz. We were very impressed with the thorough instructions and information sheets that listed all the fun facts in a very kid-friendly manner. The crafts and activities were equally entertaining and reinforced the educational concepts in a fun way. If you’re looking for an educational crafting box to keep your kiddo screen-free and busy during summer vacation then don’t miss out on this one! 🙂
