Bubble Toy and Velvet Art
The kids received some gift money while they were in the US and as soon as the money touched their little, itchy hands, they were off to the Discovery Store at the Embarcadero in San Francisco. In that store, the money just went POOF! like magic.
Adi chose How to Make Monstrous, Huge, Unbelievably Big Bubbles while Ali chose Velvet Art. Both books/toys are by Klutz.
The bubble toy/book comes with David Stein's Bubble Thing which helps your kid make giant bubbles. It also comes with a recipe for making the best bubble juice. Adi has tried playing with it several times and it does make bigger bubbles. You will need to be patient though as it may take some time for you to get the technique right as you follow the instructions in the book. Still, it allows for hours of good clean fun, away from the TV.
Velvet Art, on the other hand, allows your kids to enjoy goof-proof coloring. Do you remember how when your kids first learned to color, you instructed them to color within the lines? Most likely, it took you years to teach them that and at times, your kids may have gotten frustrated. Well, with Velvet Art -- your kids always color within the lines and if they do make a mistake, the velvet (which is part of the sheet or picture that they are coloring) will just absorb the marker's ink and allow your kids to enjoy their fuzzy masterpieces. The book also allows your child to make things like gift tags, cards, etc., with the materials provided in the book.
Thanks to Tita Rose for the gifts. The kids are enjoying their purchases while Mommy gets some time to rest. =)
