Easter Gifts: Creatto Light-Up Crafting Kits

Creatto Light-Up Crafting Kits

If you are scanning Amazon from home to find some Easter and at-home STEM learning fun then consider these Creatto light-up crafting kits. These are three-dimensional creations that light up and the kids build themselves. They won’t even know it’s STEM building because the pieces are so fun to work with and build.

You can build a light-up moose, elephant, shark, unicorn or kitty. These crafting kits stand on their own and require only batteries. See the video below:

There is a manual and videos to help the kids build. You don’t need hardware or tools. The plastic pieces connect with each other. This means you don’t have to commit to building only the animal in your booklet. You can connect them any way you like and get creative!

The string of LED lights makes for a particularly fun sight to display anywhere such as your bedroom or game room.

Creatto Light-Up Kits are available at retailers such as Amazon.

These Easter Children’s Books are Perfect Picks for Spring 2020

Books for Easter

We all hope life is back to normal or at least beginning to be by Easter. I have already done a lot of my Easter shopping and decorating and shopped online for items more that I ever have for this Holiday. Our boys get some candy, books or magazines, maybe a t-shirt and small gif card in their baskets at their older age. I have reviewed a few Easter children’s books that I think are great for this spring. I have them listed below.
