Are you ready for something different in your craft box? We received these unique texture-UR® craft kits from Fibre-Craft. Your child can create a 3D project by layering textured foam. Chose from pre-designed kits or basic materials to come up with your own creative ideas.
My daughter had fun with this little turtle kit (part of the Standard Kit listed below and exclusive to Michaels stores). The adhesive foam squares were easy for her (4 years old) to use. The paper was easily removed and the blocks stuck well. This adorable turtle even stands on his own. She loved the cute character, crafting with mommy and the bright colors I loved the unique textures, hands-on building time and small motor skills of this project.
The only frustrating part of the this kit was the instructions. Although it was easy for me to understand (see above right), it was hard for my daughter to interpret. The instruction illustration and the photo on the front were also reversed which frustrated my daughter. We were using the illustration to figure out where the materials were to be placed and when she saw the picture the other direction she thought she put it together wrong.
Use the 3D space-urs™, which are peel and stick, stackable squares included in most text-UR Foam products to create an instant wow effect and make ordinary arts & crafts projects extraordinary. The 3D text-UR Foam sheets come in 6 bright colors and cool textures like Wavy, Scaly and Terry Cloth! Parents will quietly celebrate as kids unplug from their computers, TVs and hand-held gadgets to participate in this seemingly lost form of play. Concentration, dexterity, creativity and patience all come together when kids stop and sit down to create art. Maybe that’s why there’s art in this smart form of play.
Priced from $2.99 to $8.99 even kids on a budget can relish the art of making something with their hands, no drawing, coloring or painting required. Look for Fibre-Craft’s text-UR® Foam product kits at Michaels, Joann’s, Meijer and A.C. Moore, and make sure to check out the text-UR® Foam website for fun product ideas.
