As summer vacation kicks into high gear, we're stocking up on new ways to keep hands and minds engaged.
This is the best sidewalk chalk I've ever used. Not only is the chalk super pigmented & vivid, Faber Castell's Outdoor Chalk Art Set comes with awesome stretchy chalk holders, a kneeling board (especially handy for joints over the age of 10) and a brush for blending.
If certain members of your household are spending too much time watching videos on Vine & YouTube, get them started making their own with Stikbot. From their website:
"Stikbots are poseable sticky bots who will adhere to almost any flat surface thanks to their suction-cup hands and feet (yep, they were born this way!) Their unique design allows stikbots to be posed in countless ways – their limbs, torso, and even neck can be positioned at multiple different angles. Stikbots are ridiculously fun and addicting to play!
With the free mobile app Stikbot Studios, available on iOS and Android stores, you can shoot stop motion animation videos starring Stikbot! The app snaps individual pictures and stitch them together into a film. It also comes with sound effects and music. Of course, you can add your own voice! Anyone can pose, film and edit their #stikbot in stop animation quickly and easily."
Unlimited creativity and goofy robots! What could be better?
There's a fresh crop of Klutz titles on the shelf, too, with restocks on popular titles like Star Wars Thumbprint Art and Nail Art next to new titles like Glitter Face Painting and Make Paper Lantern Animals. Klutz books include everything you need to work on a project together with clear instructions and cheerful design.
