I like to think that we’re a pretty crafty loving family! We certainly love crayons and doodling. So when we were sent these fab Mini Mosaics from Brainstorm Toys we couldn’t wait to try them out!
Craft Time Mini Mosaics by Brainstorm Toys
To give you an overview, they are a mosaic kit which gives your little ones an introduction into creating mosaic masterpieces. Each kit contains
- 200 glittery square pieces
- 1 design board (various design available but we had a pony and dolphin)
So the idea is simple – stick a coloured square as denoted by the design board. They are designed for children over 3 years of age (due to the small parts – glittery squares!) but shh don’t tell anyone, we gave one to our 2 year old! She didn’t eat the squares and whilst too young, she did understand the concept. Actually she did really well at sticking the correct colours on the correct boxes – definitely helping her with colour recognition. Also she’s a stickler for getting the sticker correctly on the box – tuning those fine motor skills.
Lots of Fun
We had great fun with these kits! I found it to be quite addictive (I had to “help” my littlest). Husband also thought they were fab! They are so compact and ideal for travel – would’ve been perfect for our Centre Parcs trip! If truth be told, these would’ve made a great family evening for us whilst we were there.
The girls were super pleased with their mini masterpieces! I am going to go find a little frame so we can put them up in their bedrooms! As you can see, littlest hadn’t quite finished hers when I took this picture – I may have finished it off myself afterwards…. like I said, addictive!
If you fancy trying these for yourself then you can find them on Amazon*! I know I’ll be buying some of these in future.
Have you tried these?
