Keeping Kids Creative Week
Disclosure: I received items for my review. This is a sponsored post that may contain affiliate links.
My kids had a day off from school last week. I was excited to hang out and have a leisurely day where we aren’t trying to beat the clock. Well, keeping them engaged, happy, and not staring at the TV or iPad can keep me on my toes. The day is long – and I wanted to occupy my kids time before they turned on me or one another! HA!
Have you heard it is Keep Kids Creative Week (September 18-24, 2017) These toys and games can help them take a break from everyday learning and get their imaginations and creative juices flowing.
A new take on the classic game Pictionary! The Purple Cow brings the “DOODLE A DROODLE” back to life with a twist in their game Doodle a Droodle! The name “droodle” signifies a mix between a “doodle” (a sketch) and a “riddle”. In this entertaining droodle game, players need to think creatively and sketch their interpretation of the droodle. If they did a good job in sketching – they win points. A good laugh is guaranteed! This game assists in developing fine motor skills, creativity and “out of the box” thinking as well as sharpening one’s sense of humor! Inside: 108 droodles, erasable tin board, 2 erasable pens, a sand timer & instructions booklet. Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio – Gold Seal Award 2016
