Look around your neighborhood. If it's anything like mine, the evidence that we've transitioned from summer to fall is all around us. Tree leaves are turning from green to yellow and red, spooky decorations haunt every doorstep in preparation for Halloween and folks are starting to put away the kiddie pools and slip-and-slides.
Fall's cool, crisp weather also means that rainy days are around the corner. It's time to begin thinking about some indoor activities for your kids that will keep their imaginations running at full steam. A great place to start is at kitsandcaboodles on Etsy. Shop owner Andrea's craft kits designed just for kids are the perfect way to chase away those rainy day blues and bring out your little one's inner artist.
Andrea makes it easy for children to get started on fun paper projects with her Kids Mega Craft Kit. This kit truly has everything your little one needs to create her masterpiece including glitter, pretty beads, colorful papers and fluffy pom-poms. Andrea thought of everything – including the fact that you'd want a place to store all these goodies. Every kit comes packed in a sturdy reusable box making organization a snap.
If you really want to get your little one's imagination going, check out Andrea's Kids Monster Kit, which is filled with everything you could possible need to make a bunch of scary – or goofy – paper monsters. You'll even find craft sticks tucked inside to make puppets for monster-piece theatre!
