So we might not be quite ready to think about snow days… but this reusable Floof “snow” is a great activity for any season.
Partnered with companies such as Play Vision offers the opportunity to share with readers the very “coolest” toys. While this is a #sponsored post (we received a sample product for this review), the opinions expressed herein are strictly my own.
It’s the end of summer and we’ve been just a little busy with game reviews… so we’re super excited about Floof. No instructions!! Just soft, snow-like material to shape and mold. Here we’ve been playing with the Mr. & Mrs. Snowman set which comes with accessories to build a small family.
One bucket has enough to make several snowmen, but only has enough eyes, carrots for 2 figures. You can get creative with lego or barbie pieces to outfit the remaining snowmen if needed. Or use the leftover Floof to create a snow drift or snowy blanket floor.
As a mom, I must mention how simple the clean up was. After the girls put all the pieces and Floof into the bucket, I just took a wet paper towel to the play area and that’s how easy it was. I will mention though, that because Floof is water soluble make sure children have dry, clean hands when playing. Otherwise it gets a bit sticky (just wash hands and dry to resume play).
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we decided to make our own Valentine’s Day cards this year. Sure I was tempted to just buy them at the dollar store but I thought since my daughter likes doing crafts, we should make hand-made Valentine’s Day cards… especially since her Valentine’s will only include a couple of cousins and 5 Sunday school friends. This was manageable and was going to be cute. So I found scrapbooking paper that I was done with – you know the pieces that just keep getting passed over for projects, plus a couple of complimenting sheets. The plan was simple… to not over-think any piece of it and make it as fun and easy as possible for an almost 4 year old. Success. We loaded the paper and just made a bunch of cut-outs. (Hint – ugly paper isn’t so bad when it is only accessory size.) We had NO plan – just lots of cut out… whatever looked cool and Valentine’s like. Then (later when her interest reappeared) we just assembled. We had fun because there was no stress.
The Playdoh crafts were on the spot gift ideas one day while she was messing with her Playdoh. She was mixing her colors like any 3 year old and we just decided to spell Daddy and Mommom for gifts. We let it harden and glued the pieces. Simple and very age appropriate.
