I received samples to facilitate this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
My children LOVE arts and crafts. Normally I do as well, however I hate the mess that it makes and the hours of clean up that I have to do. For example: scrubbing paint or glue off walls, furniture, clothing and my children themselves. Most days it’s just not worth the hassle. PomTree has completely taken the stress away by creating No Mess craft kits. There is no glue involved, no paints…nothing messy at all!
PomTree has a huge variety of craft kits to choose from and at many different price points. These kits make fantastic Holiday gifts!

I recently had the opportunity to review one of the Playscape Mega Creativity Kits and the Sparkle Fun Playhouse Kit with my kids. After opening the Sparkle Fun Playhouse Kit, I realized that it was way beyond what my daughter could handle. She is 5, but has some fine motor delays and gets frustrated really easy. I did not want craft time to turn into temper tantrum time, so I put the kit away until she is ready. It does look super cool and I know when she is ready, she we love it!
The Playscape Mega Creativity Kit however was right up Katie’s alley! In fact even though we got the Girls kit, my son Rowan even got in on the action! We spent hours making bookmarks and funky bracelets out of pipe cleaners and pony beads! The best part though, was that there was no mess at all! Everything that was meant to be stuck onto something came with an adhesive back that you just peeled the protective paper to get too. Easy Peasy and just challenging enough to work Katie’s fine motor skills!
I highly recommend PomTree No Mess craft kits for the craft lover in your family this Holiday season! You can find out more about PomTree crafts on Facebook, Twitter, and check out their Pinterest board.
