Rainy Day Activity: BENDASTIX Crafts for Kids
This past weekend was a rainy weekend and my boy needed something to do. We decided that we would stretch our imaginations with the BENDASTIX Big Box that I received in exchange for a review and had a great time with our Rainy Day Activity. P.S. There’s a giveaway at the end of this post!
We have seen BENDASTIX on TV before and my boy has always asked for them. I was afraid that neither of us would be creative enough to make something with them, but we had a blast!
Fibre-Craft’s BENDASTIX™ makes its debut with eight arts & crafts kits priced affordably from $6.99 to $19.99. Designed for children ages 6 and up, each BENDASTIX™ kit is packaged with a soft and squishy handle tempting youngsters to quickly open the box. It’s the ultimate in open-ended imaginative play.
The Big Box comes with a ton of BENDASTIX for hundreds of combinations
This huge box of BENDASTIX contains 10 foam Thingamajigz, 8 ring Connectorz, 36 Bendastickerz, 8 Long Stix, 5 Medium Stix, 6 Wide Stix 10 Mini Stix, a Build & Play Display Stage and more.
The instruction booklet (or Boot Camp) shows kids how to get started with the BENDASTIX and give a few ideas so my boy could really get his crafty hands to making fun new toys.
Even the box handle is a BENDASTIX as well – the longest one, I might add…
We started with the BENDASTIX Botz (or Buddies) and made these funny little people.
My boy loved the stickers that were included so he could put eyes and lips on just about everything (including me).
When we started creating on our own, the boy made this funny little creature. I think he looks like a jellyfish or maybe a snail. What do you think?
I, of course, made some silly sunglasses for myself (well, I made them for him, but he wouldn’t try them on) and I was cool…
The boy saw this snake in the instruction manual and asked me to help him. I made the snake and he put on the eyes.
After we had finished making our crafts, the boy pulled out the stage and made the two buddies dance and sing for us. He was having so much fun with it all. I have to say this was a successful Rainy Day Activity!
