Review:

Wind-Up Workshop: Animals by Creativity Kids includes everything children need to create five wind-up animal crafts: five wind-up mechanisms, animal cut-outs, cardboard accessories self-adhesive wiggly eyes, craft and glitter glue, fuzzy stickers, cardboard accessories, a variety of decorative materials and illustrated instructions. Since the kit contains enough materials for five wind-up animals, the activity can be completed solo or as a group; it makes a great rainy-day playmate activity. The activity encourages creativity and interest in crafts while honing fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, sequencing and following of instructions. The product is at once a craft and a toy since children can play with their creations after having completed them. It would make an entertaining, if not slightly over-priced addition to any craft closet!
