One of the joys of having a large family is the simple fact that THEY can get your kids “stuff” and you don’t have to! Add the fact that the kid has a birthday in the summer and you have the entire year covered between that and Christmas!
Bendaroos are one of those things that I would never spend money on. To me, a box of wax covered string for $20 is insane! However, it is effectively marketed to the under 5 years old set and in high demand.
Keep in mind that these are wax covered, so they are sticky. Picture in your head, a few on a long haired cat…who is now streaking through the room and lightening speed.
These gems even come with a box of templates to show you roughly how to do things with them, other than sticking them to a cat. You can see Sarah and Aunt Janet working intensely on a shark. Boy, was it fierce!
We now have a completely stocked “art cart”: pipecleaners, beads, paints, glitter glue, Bendaroos, a Lite Brite and more! What a lucky little girl. We will have plenty of creative “left brained” stuff to do on rainy days!
