Adorable Crafting Keeps Kids Busy: Squirrel King10:25 PM
I don't know about you, but it seems like I always have to help my kids with every step of a craft kit. They are bright kids, but the directions are usually written for adults. We tried out these cute Squirrel King kits with the kids, and I was able to set them down, walk away, and come back to some pretty adorable squirrels!

Now, I'm not going to lie. These took time, and attention, and a little coordination, too. One of my kids ended up with a big ball of yarn in a knot, so I had to help him out. Other than that, my 12-year-old took charge and got everyone set with a cute DIY squirrel at the end of an hour. They even have accessory kits (like a gardening wheelbarrow) for the squirrels!
These are so great for developing hand-eye coordination, learning to follow directions, and patience. I was so proud of my kiddos for putting these together. I think they were proud, too!
You can find the Acorn for $19.99 and the Project Green Thumb accessory kit for $7.99 at the Squirrel King website.
