Crafting Fun With BENDASTIX! #Giveaway

Are you looking for fun ways to keep your kids happy this summer? While the best part about summer is being outside enjoying the sun, sometimes it's just too hot out there. We've had a heat wave the past week or so, with temps in the mid-90's at 6:00 in the evening. Needless to say, our family has been enjoying some indoor fun as well as outdoor this summer! One of our family's favorite indoor activities is crafting. Some enjoy scrapbooking, some build models, some get creative and design fancy greeting cards-everybody has a favorite. So, when I was given the opportunity to review BENDASTIX, I knew these would be a hit with the kids. 



Even the puppy was excited to see what was inside the box!

BENDASTIX are a soft, almost squishy pieces that come in varying lengths, widths and shapes. The list of what to create with Bendastix is literally endless! The kit I received (the Big Box Kit) comes with a booklet of instructions and inspiration to get you started, as well as a huge collection of stix. Your children will be able to design funky glasses or a new wristband, or build a car or bicycle with their Bendastix. And the best part? You can unbend the stix and start all over when you want to create something new! The stix are not one-time use, but can be re-used over and over.



We had fun creating some ideas from the inspiration book, as well as making our own designs. Here are a few of the neat pieces we've made so far with our BENDASTIX Big Box Kit.




Yes, you can braid with BENDASTIX!
Since Jubilee was excited about BENDASTIX, we made her a BENDASTIX collar :) 
The funkiest glasses you've ever seen!
As you can see, BENDASTIX were indeed a big hit with the family (kids and dogs alike). This is the perfect way to keep the children occupied when it gets "just too hot" outside this summer.
