Getting kids creative with Spin MasterApril 21, 2020
We all know how hard it is to keep kids occupied at the moment. Spin Master has a huge range of creative toys that are perfect for keeping the kids entertained. We were sent a selection to put to the test that will not only keep them busy but also teach them at the same time. As a parent, I love toys that have an educational element as well.
We love the different Kinetic products and have previously reviewed Kinetic Rock. This Kinetic Sand Rainbow mix set it perfect for home school younger children as it teaches colour mixing at the same time. The Kinetic Sand Rainbow mix set comes with primary colour kinetic sand and instructions on how to create the different colours of the rainbow as well as a selection of tools to use that will get those creative juices flowing.
As my girls have got older they have really started to enjoy Meccano. We were sent the Meccano 10 in 1 Dinosaurs set which allows us to choose one of ten different models to make. You can then take them apart and build another one. You can also get creative and make your own models with a little bit of imagination. Building Meccano is great for STEM learning as the kids learn how things are built, follow instructions and problem solving among other things. We have previously built a Meccano motorbike as well as some of the programmable Meccano products.
There are lots of different cool maker products available from Spin Master but Kumikreator is our favourite as it allows you to create a variety of friendship bracelets and necklaces. The Kumikreator produces fantastic quality jewellery that make great gifts. This spin to create set comes with 60 spools of thread and enough accessories for 5 bracelets and 2 necklaces and you can get creative with the colours you choose and decide how many threads to use. You can also buy refills that means you can keep creating.
There are so many educational products out there but finding ones that have secret educational elements works better with my kids as they don’t see it as learning.
