As a craft enthusiast, these words make my heart sing: "Mom, can we do a craft together?" *Sigh* Of course we can--I would like nothing better.
It's not that I expect my boys to grow up and want to go on crafting weekends with me or something--in fact I know that there are things like sports looming on the horizon, just waiting to take away that mommy-kid crafting enthusiasm--but I love any activity that helps my kids explore their creativity. Recently we were asked to review the Crafty Kids play models, which allow kids to personalize and decorate their own cardboard play house or space shuttle. My kids were outta-this-world excited to get their mini space shuttle model in the mail.
After coloring it very carefully (this seriously took several days of craft time to finish--they were very particular about every section being colored in),
we put it together (it only took a few minutes)
and launched into playtime.
You can't see it in the picture, but there are several stuffed animals on their way to Jupiter. Hours of fun I'm tellin' ya.
They also have a mini playhouse--so cute! AND, there are even full-sized play houses and space shuttles. All their models and playhouses are made of 100% recycled material, so you can feel like an extra-special good parent.
We're over the moon because Crafty Kids wants to give one of our readers their choice of the Shuttle Imagination Craft Model or the Creation Cottage Craft Model! Yea! You will love these mini models.

P.S. Sorry for all the lame space puns--I couldn't help myself!
