kids art: vroom vroom

Vroom! Vroom!

No one enjoys crafts more than kids. Building projects gives them a chance to get their hands dirty and create something with meaning. Sharing a hobby with them can be loads of fun. Ethan and Hudson's eyes light up at the first sight of a crafty kit.

Ethan tagged along with me one day on a trip to Michael's - He couldn't believe all the cool stuff! Is it awful of me to be a creative mom and never bring my kids to a creative supply store?! In that moment I realized that yeah, he should come with me every so often. He found many things he wanted to make but, settled on a wooden race car kit. And, of course we had to get Hudson one too!

Today, we busted out the kits and the boys built their own race car, It was easy to assemble with just wood glue and simple instructions.

For only a buck, this little kit brought them a lot of joy and they each made a model car that can be proudly displayed for all to see.

You're such a cool Mom! What a great project for the boys and you can see how happy it made them. (That last picture is a framer!)
