Imagination is more important than knowledge. Albert Einstein
Free play has always been a large part of the playtime in our house. Providing open-ended craft supplies, toys, dress-up clothes, anything that will spark imagination. I’m always surprised at just how creative they can be. My dream was to have bins with lots of craft supplies right at their fingertips.
But the reality of having four kids with open craft supplies out and available every second of the day, sunk in when the older three got into my craft supplies while I was getting the baby down for a nap. Glitter, tiny foam balls, markers, colored pencils, pipe cleaners, it was everywhere.
How can one be crafty without the mess?
A Crafty Solution for the Uncrafty Mom
Even if you aren’t a crafty mom, you can pull out Bunchems and Bunchems Alive for hours of quiet play and soaring imaginations. But before creating with Bunchems, make sure your hair is pulled back away from your child’s face.
For the best Bunchems experience, be sure to play on hard surfaces to avoid entanglement on any fibrous surfaces, such as carpets.
I’ll admit I was skeptical at first. Would these squishy balls really fit together? How long would they hold the attention of my children? Turns out they LOVED THEM.
What are they?
Bunchems are colorful little balls that stick to each other and build like no other. Clean up is a breeze because they stick to each other. The kids loved sticking the balls to each other and following the directions that were included. They also created their own monster creatures using the included accessories.
The possibilities are limitless with Bunchems. They stick and stay, then pull apart easily for reimagined creations. Put them away and get them out the next day to create new creatures and creations. There’s no surprise, Bunchems was awarded the 2016 Toy of the Year Award for Activities!
Squish the balls together, connect them, create new creations with Bunchems and watch them come to life with NEW Bunchems Alive. This was a favorite. Everyone wanted to use the motorized Stick’em Ball to bring their creations to life. There are no limits to your creativity!
