Colortime Crafts For Your Crafty Kids

by Lesley

My kids really enjoy craft projects. Usually the messier the better. If it involves glue, scissors, or glitter than we are set! This is one of their favorite activities to do with each other. So when I was asked to do a review for Colortime I jumped at the chance. They have such cute items and I just knew that the kids would love doing them. Plus they are EASY and not going to make a horrible mess for me to clean up.

Colortime provides quality craft keepsakes that your kids are going to love to do. They have a little bit of everything to choose from – backpacks, totes, t-shirts, pillowcases, and even Girl Scout items. Totally adorable pictures and clever sayings all kids will find likeable. These are crafts you can do for birthday party activities, church functions, or just at home for fun.
We picked the tote bags and backpacks because well you can just never have too many places to put all your stuff. Or so Gracie tells me. These are the designs we chose. Perfect for my girlie girl and tough man!



Gracie and Matthew had a lot of fun coloring their new bags. I purchased a pack of the primary markers and then added a pink fabric marker. This allowed the kids to have seven different colors to decorate with. It was more than enough.

If your kids like to color and do crafts I would consider checking out Colortime. I think they would love decorating something themselves and giving it their own personal touch. It’s easy, affordable, and most of all FUN!

Giveaway Time!

One lucky reader is going to have $50 to spend in the Colortime store! To enter, visit their site and then tell us what special item you would choose for your little one.

At this time it sounds like BlogEngine is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
