Oh man! Goldie was giddy about this project! Our pals at Tech Will Save Us sent us this Bright Creatures Kit that teaches kiddos about how electricity works, which is so hard to try to explain without hands on experience! She loves playdough already so the fact that we were able to make this "seal" creature light up by connecting the led light helpers just sent her over the edge of giddiness! As she gets older, she'll be able to do a better job at creating the creatures herself because my talent is not making dough creatures. I could definitely pick out outfits for the dough creatures, though. HAHA. Darcy was super into it too so I guess you're never too young to sit and watch. I have a feeling he'll be building elaborate creatures before we know it.
There are lots of different kits for kids of all ages and I think this would make such a great gift. This is the kind of gift that is fun but also sets the foundation for science education. I especially appreciate toys like the Bright Creatures Kit because I kept Goldie out of TK this year because of school district issues and it makes me feel great to feel like she's getting some good education in at home. I try to do lessons everyday so she's more prepared for Kindergarten next year.
Anyway, we really enjoyed the kit and we'll be creating lots more creatures in the future. We think you'll enjoy it as well.
