Our box from PomTree Crafts just arrived in the mail and my kids were hopping up and down with excitement. My 7 year-old daughter and 12 year-old niece dumped the Pom Jewelry activity tub on the carpet between them and all I heard were ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as they discovered and sorted the various shapes and sizes of pom poms, beads, sticky decorations, foam charms and silk cords. The company is proud of the fact that their kits require no glue, tape or mess. And it was pretty nice not having to wait for the girls’ creations to dry. The kit comes with 405 pieces and is recommended for ages 5 on up. I would agree with this age suggestion as my girls spent a good 35 minutes creating and comparing their necklaces, bracelets, hair bands, key chains and earrings. Priced at under $10 on www.consumercrafts.com, the PomTree Jewelry Kit would make a great present.
The makers of PomTree Crafts Kits are also excited to tell folks about their four other new craft kits all prices at $13 or less. These adorable pillow puff kits and pom pal kits are adorable and let kids either follow easy to follow visual directions or express their own creativity without the need for glue or sewing. If kids can peel the backs off the adhesive and apply pressure than no adult intervention is necessary. All the pieces are included and at the end they have their own unique toy that they created. In this age of technology, its pretty cool seeing kits get wrapped up in a craft making kit. Their are four different options to choose from depending on your child’s interests – a felt puppy with a bone pillow, felt kitty with a mouse pillow, mommy and baby owl or mommy and baby bird. It’s hard to select just one!
Constructive play is an essential part of every child’s development. Bright colors and interesting shapes stimulate young minds, and figuring out exactly how things fit together exercises problem-solving skills. Photos provide a visual guide for builders, while stickers and embellishments offer plenty of options for a child to decorate each project and make it their own. The option to customize each project encourages self-expression, and successful creation provides a child with that wonderful, hey-look-what-I-made feeling of achievement. Play is also an important factor in building strong parent-child bonds, and our creative activities provide a great opportunity for parents and children to enjoy important one-on-one time. With moveable pieces and characters, PomTree products are meant for hours of fun, long after the building is done. Best of all, PomTree pieces are simple to create, with minimal preparation and very little cleanup. No glue, no mess!
