I love to do crafts and activities with my children that involves having them use their imagination so when I was asked to review some Imagine iCAN craft kits I could not pass it up! “Imagine I Can is a unique line of affordably priced activities for kids ages 3 and up — some packaged in colorfully designed tins that are portable and reusable. Activities include: make-it-myself projects, role play, games and arts and crafts.” My children absolutely love any excuse to make something with me. When I went to the website to pick out the craft kits to review for my children I was taken aback by how many they offered. I could not decide! They all looked like crafts that my children would love. I decided to have two different themed Stained Glass Sticker Kits and the Imagine iCAN Rock Pals kit to have sent to our home. I was just as excited to try them out as my kids were and we definitely could not wait for their arrival.
The first Imagine iCan kits we opened were the Stained Glass Sticker Kits. We ordered the Garden Theme and the Space Theme kits. Juliana is holding the box for the Garden themed kit and Taylor is holding the Space themed kit. We were very excited to get started. The kits were said to be for children 3 and older but Juliana is only 2 and she was able to make hers with a little help from me. Both kits came with 5 different hangings that they put the glass looking stickers on to make them look as though they are made of stained glass. It was really easy for them and they really enjoyed it. They also had 5 colors each to choose from. The Garden box had more pastel colors to use which was nice because we were able to tell the sticker sheets apart and keep them separate.
As I said these kits are made for children 3 years and older but my 2 year old was able to make her window hanging with a little help from me. She actually was able to do more without my help than my 3 year old son was able to. I think he was trying to make his look like the photo on the box though where she was doing what she thought looked pretty.
They took their time and giggled and enjoyed the attention mommy was giving them back and forth. They almost made it a contest. Juliana would be using the color yellow and so Taylor would say that he was going to use his yellow sticker sheet. It was really cute to watch them compete. Juliana was making hers “beautiful” and Taylor was making his look “awesome!” and I was not allowed to mix those terms up! The finished pieces were so pretty! When you held them up to the light it really did look like we had made them out of real stained glass. The Creative Toys that Imagine iCAN offer that we were reviewing so far were really wonderful and we were really excited to open up the Imagine iCAN Rock Pals Kit and get to making our new friends!
With as much fun as we were already having the kids were super excited to get to making their new Rock Pals! These were going to be the toys that could use for some imaginative play after they were finished drying. They were getting ready to come up with names before we even got to reading the directions. Again as with the Stained Glass Sticker Kits, the instructions were fairly simple. Take the “clay” material provided to make the shapes of rocks and shape it and then use the glue provided to glue pieces as needed. It comes with already cut felt pieces, some goggly eyes, and some different colored pipe cleaners. The front of the box has a few photos of the different Rock Pals you can make and Taylor again decided he wanted to make his pal look like the ones on the box. He decided to make his a silly face with eyebrows and a mustache. Since he started his first Juliana followed his direction and decided to make hers look like one on the box as well. She decided she wanted mommy to help her make a fish.
The kit again is really made so that children aged 3 and up can make them with very little help from mommy or daddy. It was really nice to have such a neat activity for them that was actually quite simple to accomplish. It was not super complicated and I appreciated that because otherwise my kids would have gotten really frustrated if it had been. The finished Rock Pals were awesome! Juliana named hers Fishy Face and Taylor named his Pal Moe! So it was definitely a good family evening spent together on a cold night outside. I am definitely going to check out the Imagine iCAN website to order more creative toys for us to do on rainy days or just days when its too cold outside for us to play outside.
