Who says you need to get out of the house to have adventure? Last night our family opened up the text-UR Foam 3D Kits we had waiting, and created a ton of fun, right in our own kitchen.
The best way to start out any adventure is to give flowers to mom. If you didn't know that tip, now you do, and your mother will thank you. ;) The picture on the front of one of the packages had a flower, and little sweetheart that he is, my son set out to make that for his mama. The brown in the pot is dirt (of course). :)
Then there were Christmas trees to be made, yes, in August (I'm telling you, this is a boy after my own heart :) ). This was just the start of it, he continued on to make a star, decorations and presents too.
There were boats to be built...

We literally spent hours playing and creating with the text-UR Foam 3D Kits. If you haven't heard of them, they're definitely worth giving a look, and I highly recommend them for purchase. They're made of a soft, easy-to-cut Text-UR foam (that is very durable, we did not have one rip) that comes in different textures (wavy, dotty, scaly, stripes, bumpy, & Terry Cloth). Included with the pack are many, many raised stickers (very high quality stick) that allow you to transform your creation into something 3D (very easy to use, and though my son did not do the 3D effect on every craft, the ones he did came out very cool, like the flower pictured above).
The text-UR Foam is a great way to inspire creativity, and a fun way to give kids a change of pace. My son had SUCH a good time with these. I think they'd be awesome for a gift idea, school, or just having something to do for fun (or on a rainy day).
