Winter is coming and what better time to stock your home with great creative toys and games that will keep your kids busy all season long? Whether your child asks to play with toys that allow them to flex their creative skills or not, as parents, I feel like it is our job to provide our children with the tools to allow them to be creative. Sure, creative toys can be a little messy, depending on the toy, but if you can set rules for cleanup, then why not let your kids have fun? In fact, why not sit down and be creative with them? It’s great for our brains, too, parents.
Get Creative With Magnaflex from WowWee
If you would like to avoid extremely messy toys that contain a ton of little tiny pieces, you should check out the Magnaflex creative construction kits. They help inspire kids of all ages to build anything they can imagine, without the mess. These building kits contain colorful magnetic strips, connector pieces and an easy-to-follow instruction guide with fun project ideas. Kids can create animals, vehicles, wearable accessories and so much more.
Unlike other magnetic toys that we’ve played with, Magnaflex pieces have a unique texture and shape that allows the pieces to be bent, zipped, connected or stacked. Thanks to this unique design, kids have more flexibility with their creations.
I love the idea of having a craft/creativity closet. My girls have free reign over all of the coloring supplies, building kits, etc. and it’s so fun to see them make use of their down time in that way. My oldest daughter loves to show affection by making something for someone, so to have her present me with a beautiful (sometimes unknown) creature that she made with Magnaflex, is such a delight.
From the moment we opened our Magnaflex packages, my girls were literally shouting out all of their ideas of things they could make with their magnetic strips. My husband and I even love them!
Encouraging Creative Play On-The-Go
This holiday season is the perfect time to road trip. I always encourage my readers to get out and explore their state, but car rides can be a little boring for younger kids. My girls have traveled on planes and on long car rides since they were born, so I’ve learn a thing or two about what to bring and what not to bring on our trips. Aside from an electronic device with movies, we always bring a creative toys. We now have two Magnaflex kits to avoid battles between the girls, and the kits keep them quiet and engaged for quite a while.
