Craft time with The Orb Factory (#giveaway)

Crafts are a daily occurrence in our house. Now that my girls are getting old enough to complete them with minimal help (or better yet, Ashlyn can help her little sister), I like to keep an eye out for fun kits that offer crafts that they can create and display with pride. The Orb Factory is a brand that I have used in the past and had great experiences with, so I was very happy to receive the Sticky Mosaics Twinkle Tiaras craft kit to review!

When I’m looking at a craft kit, the first thing that I want to ensure is that it’s completely self-sufficient. There is nothing more frustrating to little kids than getting all excited to do a craft only for mom to discover at the last minute that you need to supplement the kit with something that you don’t have on hand. The Sticky Mosaics kit came with everything that we needed to complete the crafts: 6 thick foam tiaras with numbered mosaics, enough stickers to complete the tiaras and best of all, 6 legends so every kid can have their own reminder of which sticker corresponds with which number!

The girls were eager to get to work, so they picked out their tiaras and off they went. Ashlyn had changed into her Rapunzel dress for the occasion and as you can see in the picture above, was concentrating very hard on getting her tiara just right. She decided to follow the mosaic pattern as it was printed, with one small jewel substitution, and was easily able to complete her tiara entirely on her own. Rowan needed more help to complete her tiara (she actually took a break and finished it the next day), but even at not-quite-three years old, she was able to identify the numbers and which sticker she should use.

My favourite part is that each tiara comes with a velcro strip that you position yourself to get just the right size for the tiara. No need to worry about them being too big or too small! The legends were a big help, though we did find that a couple of the colours were not the exact same as the stickers. It was easy to figure out and the girls felt a real sense of accomplishment when they finished. We still have four more tiaras to decorate and I think they’re going to come in very handy during this endless winter as a fun way to spend an hour, not to mention all of the adventures that the girls have when the tiaras are done and are ready to play with!

    I know my granddaughters would like the sparkling unicorn mosiaca and the owl push plush. I bought a mosiac last Christmas and they loved it. The good thing was even the little ones could help.
