I love doing crafty things with my kids. My problem is I don't always sit down with them and do it. I think about it, heck I even save the milk jugs and scraps to do it with them, but then I think it's too much hassle or some other dumb excuse. I wanted to find something that we could do together easily while sitting at the table and just enjoy time together: Introducing the Papertoy Monsters
I must say in advance that they weren't so easy for a 3 year old to put together. My 5 year old can do the easy ones, but there's some work to be done with the "Advanced" monsters. They come with a little write up about each monster and even some blank monsters for your kids (or yourself) to color/design. All in all, a lot of fun and I recommend getting the book for those rainy days when there's nothing to do.
If you're interested in buying it, it's on sale now:
