Remember my review of the fabulous Klutz books? I described how they offered something for everyone. In case you missed it, here’s a preview.
My degrees are in education and my kids never forget it. “Don’t try to make this vacation educational, Mom!” they plead. When I offer games and activities they look at me suspiciously, “Is this educational?” That’s why I have to be extra sneaky when I add educational activities to the agenda. One of the easiest ways I’ve found to do this is with Klutz books. They have a selection of books with activities included that will engage the most reluctant reader and capture their imagination.
Gotcha Gadgets is perfect for guys who want to play tricks on their sisters. With twenty electric gizmos including a motion sensor, light sensor and door alarm, they won’t realize they’re learning basic science principles or if they do, they won’t care. This one is my son’s favorite.
Blops and Dribbles are included on each page, waiting to be turned into a creative masterpiece. Who wouldn’t want to make a Splatasaurus, make their own pirate map or draw who is getting pelted with rotten tomatoes? Each child can use their imagination to produce a completely different picture.
Klutz has something for all ages. I think the Make Your Own Disney Princess Tiaras would be a great addition to a little girl’s birthday party or Teddy Bear tea party. With some common items from around the house, the kids can also make bracelets and magic wands. They’ll enjoy wearing their own creations and it keeps them occupied during the party. Win-win.
For the tween girl crowd, these Beaded Bands are fun to make. They can make one with their best friends and have unique, matching jewelry that no one else has. The kit has 900+ beads so endless combinations are possible.
Have I mentioned how much I loved the Toy Story series? Buzz Lightyear was my favorite character. I had to make a couple of these foam gliders for myself. My throwing arm might not be that great but I managed to get them to glide a small ways before they crashed.
The Star Wars Folded Flyers makes 30 paper starfighters and is a perfect gift for any Star Wars fan. *Hint, if it’s given as a gift to the fan’s child I’m sure they’ll spend all their time trying to make folded flyers with their child.
I’ve bought Klutz products for my children for years so I can attest that the kits help to alleviate boredom on rainy afternoons, encourage creativity and add some educational activities that the kids won’t protest. Do you have a favorite Klutz book?
