Craft time for my son is fun time. He just loves to sit down and create. It's a great way to spend time with him, and we end up doing things I know he is going to someday remember fondly.
|Project preparation was as easy as popping out the pieces|
The first item we put together was the lion puppet. We popped out each of the sturdy cardboard pieces & the easy-to-follow instructions, and in no time at all we were ready to go. No scissors or glue were required, which made clean up a breeze too (parents everywhere are cheering!).
|This is the inside of the puppet, you can see where my son just put the tongue into place.|
My son is 6-years-old and he had no trouble at all putting this together, with just minimal assistance. The piece are numbered, and the double-sided sticky tape holds them together. The hardest part of this kit, and it wasn't hard at all, was getting that double-sided tape off of the coated paper.
|Getting the jaws ready.|
|There are two sturdy cardboard handles that you place inside|
to open and close the puppet's mouth.

We call him 'Tigey'
Here is the finished product. Isn't he cute? My son named him Tigey. And yes, I did inform him that it's a lion, not a tiger, but he said he already knows that...and so "Tigey" it is. He's a welcome addition to our craft family of creations. :)
|Mini Play Set- Farm Fun|
Another imagine i CAN® craft kit we put together was the Mini Play Set-Farm Fun. This is basically a group of farm animals that you pop out and put together (very easily) by matching up the numbers.
|See the Rooster? He's put together, standing up, and ready to play.|
There is a paper sheet to serve as the farm, and you can place your animals anywhere that you'd like, to create whatever farm scene appeals to you at the moment.
|The sturdy cardboard pieces go together easily and stand up with no problem at all.|
It was getting a little late last night when we opened it (close to my son's bed time) but he was so enthusiastic that I told him we could start putting the animals together, and we did. We got about half way through and I told him we'd finish them today when he got home from school.
The first thing he said this morning, even before he had breakfast? "Can I put together some of my little animals?"
I told him he could, and he got a couple more in before it was time to start getting ready. I'm sure he's going to go right back to it when school lets out this afternoon. This kit appeals to his sense of detail, he likes to see how everything is drawn, and he likes to put the pieces together. It's a fun kit to own.
