If you’re like me then you need some cool activities to do with boys! The bracelet kits, beading toys & typical crafting kits on how to make a fluffy pink bunnies just won’t fly around here. My boys are all about blood, grossness & zombies…which makes this craft book awesome! You can make some pretty twisted designs with this book…and the my teens Love it! You can pick from 16 designs that are fairly simple but time consuming…making them great little projects! They aren’t very “cute” but with those dangling eyes & missing limbs who wouldn’t think they are charming?!
The book is pretty straight forward so you won’t be guessing, which is nice. The patterns are laid out in an easy to follow format with traceable designs. We had a good stash of random buttons, beads & felt already so we didn’t need to buy much…however if you have nothing then you will need to get supplies. The end result are a bunch of very small awesome looking zombies. Attention to detail & following directions is a must to get these guys looking their best but they are totally worth the effort. If you giving the book to a non crafty person I’d add in a bunch of supplies to get them going.
So if you looking for some fun rainy day projects to do with tweens – adults this book will certainly give you some fun ideas & you’ll end up with a fun undead reminder of your cool day!

Looking for the best kids craft box on the market? Tired of those wimpy little craft sets? If you have little kids then the ALEX Toys My Crafty Kit is going to be perfect for you! It comes loaded with all kinds of fabulous crafty pieces & the price is great for such a variety. The best part is it’s totally packed in a very spiffy carrying case…which you will never use because there is so much stuff loaded in this kit that it won’t fit back in (really, that’s a good thing). So save your sanity & buy a a little storage box & let the kids use the travel case for some other toys..trust me they love little boxes.
So Ideally this is great for any kid three & up…sky’s the limit on who can create after that. It comes with tissue paper, crayons, glue, safety scissors (perfect for little hands), pipes cleaners, popsicle sticks, goggle eyes, stickers, pom poms & lots of little collage pieces & random crafty goodness.

Basically this is the perfect kit to drag out on rainy days or just when you are tired of the kids being attached to the TV. It has so much stuff you can use it many times over & just add to the craft pile when things get low. If you are having a kids party or sleepover this kit is ideal for hours of silly entertainment! Not to mention the awesome artwork that you will have for your fridge.
See that picture of how full the box is? That is just how stuffed the kit will be so plan on having a spare box or tote for all the crap that won’t fit back in the box! That’s right the only complain is there is too much stuff….hardly a problem for crafty kids!
My Giant Busy Box by ALEX toys is perfect for toddlers & little people!
If you’re like me then you have a gaggle of kids in your house & that means that out of nowhere…with what seems like an entire toy store worth of crap in your home you hear that epic whine…””I’m Booooored”. Now sometimes that means you give them something to clean like the gutters or maybe you have those little tykes mow the lawn…but some days you just have to give in and get them started on a fabulous project that is fun & maybe a little messy but definitely, Not boring. This crafty activity box is Perfect for those days!
In this craft kit you get 16 different projects, lots of parts, brightly colored dough, stickers, crayons & instructions…because those are Always nice to have. There are super crafty moms (the ones that post epic projects on Pinterest all day) that won’t be impressed by this kit…they shouldn’t buy it. This kit is for people with real lives that want simple projects with their kids & to have all the parts right there with little planning….I am one of these moms. This kit is geared towards kids ages 3 to 5. The older kids will have no trouble doing most of this themselves but I’m not brave enough to leave a 3 year old alone with glue or clay, it’s just no in me. Honestly kids as old as 10 have used this in my house & still had fun so I wouldn’t worry about that age label on this creative kit.
This is great for dragging out every couple weeks when the kids boredom sets in & these are fun projects to do with your kids. Anything that gets them off the electronics & doing something creative is a good thing.
Now the biggest issue with this kit is in fact it’s size, once you open the box you better just forget about jamming it all back in there. That alone makes it impressive, I hate buying kits & opening them to find a whole bunch of air & no crafts! Alex is on your side with this issue.
