Arts and crafts are something I hold near and dear to my heart. I loved them as a kid, and I still love them now. I love the rare moments I have the time to work on something pretty, with my own hands, and enjoy myself. It’s something I’ve tried to get the kids into enjoying as well, and I love the wide variety of craft kits available nowadays that I could have only imagined in my wildest dreams as a small child.
Here’s some flashbacks from the past though from the great folks at PlayMonster, that gave me a wonderful nostalgia bomb and just brought happiness to my heart.
LatchKits!! Oh my goodness, I remember how much time I spent working on these wonderful things as a kid. I had thought about them a few times over the years and wondered if I could ever find similar kits to when I was a kid so I could find ways to just relax and enjoy. Then I saw that PlayMonster makes them, so of course I was excited and gladly accepted adding them to my gift guide.
They sent me a Snoopy type one, and while I don’t love Snoopy myself, I know someone who does who is going to love getting this as their Christmas gift this year! This is such a simple yet time consuming craft that really gets you working with your hands to create something. Pre-cut yarn makes it easy and the picture instructions are extremely helpful.
Spirograph! Though I am sure the original game out long long long before I was born, I absolutely loved making all sorts of pretty designs with a Spirograph as a kid, and even as a teenager when I had one again. This one says it’s for 8+, which means Risi might be a little young for it… so…. in that… This one is actually going to be a gift to me from me because, why the heck not? Treat yo-self and all that jazz? Yeah, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. This kit includes 19 Spirograph precision wheels, 2 rings, one pack, 3 things of putty, 3 pens, a 14pg guide book, 20pcs of design paper, and the carry along case with build-in work surface. I’m so excited to just make some pretty designs and let my worries melt away.
I love that PlayMonster has toys both old and new, for the young and like me, the young at heart. If you’re looking for a fun toy, game, arts or crafts gift for someone who enjoys something from the giant variety of products PlayMonster has, I highly suggest checking them out during your holiday shopping~!
