Shirley's Pre-packaged Crafts Review and Giveaway

Hello Neighbors,

This is a great idea for both moms and grandmothers.  Shirley's Prepackaged Crafts, sends out boxes of crafts for you to work on throughout the month with your preschooler.  Although I think even some slightly older children would have fun with this!  I received the October box, that came with 12 crafts.  Everything you need is included, other than the glue, glue sticks, scissors, crayons/markers, and tape.  Which most of us have in the house anyway.  It's just finding them when you need them that is hard!  And, the package I received had ideas for reading and snacks included.  Talk about easy.  All you have to do is follow directions!Since Shirley's Crafts order deadline is the 15th of each month, I just chose a couple of projects to complete for the review, so you could get an idea of the crafts, just in case you want to order.  So, if you want the November crafts, you have to order by Oct. 15th.  December crafts would need ordered by November 15th and so on.  November's box is $18.00.  You can purchase 3 months at a time for $52.50 (Nov, Dec, Jan), or the remainder of the school year (Nov-May) for $119.00.  The price includes enough materials for 1 child to make 12 crafts a month.

Cutting out the pieces.
This is great for a home-schooling mother to have on hand for a pre-schooler who wants to start school like their older siblings.  It is also a great idea for grandma to do when the grandchildren are visiting.  Why not do a project together?  Nowadays a lot of pre-schooler are put in front of a television to be entertained, why not make their time fun and interact a little.  Each craft only takes about 15-20 minutes.  Add your snack and reading a book that relates to the craft and you have a great half hour!  These crafts are so simply designed, that an older sibling could even assist with one.

Nice looking Dump Truck!
Like the colors?
There is a line to put their name on each craft sheet.  Included is a certificate for you to fill out for your child when you catch them doing something good!  Fill it out and let them hang it up!  They can tell their brothers, sisters, and even dad when he gets home!  One other item is a calendar for the month where you can mark down activities like, birthdays, AWANA, ball games, etc.

Our finished Strawberry bowl.
Christopher Columbus' boat!
Each of the crafts is fun and easy.  We put together a dump truck, created a picture of Christopher Colombus' boat, and put some strawberries in a bowl.  Each craft encourages your child in a simple skill, such as coloring, cutting, following directions, etc.  This is definitely a great idea!

 One neighbor will receive a box of crafts from Shirley's Prepackaged Crafts.  Moms and Grandmothers be sure to enter!  Giveaway will end 10/13 so the winner should receive the November Crafts.
