LOVE my Elmer's Crafters and X-Acto Products (get a free glue sample by joining Craft It! by Elmer's)

One of my favorite websites I use and participate in is Bzz Agent. It is a site for reviews and where you can apply for "bzz campaigns" where they send you products to try out and review and/or tell people about. In the past, I have done bzz campaigns for Babies the movie and Got2B hair products. I love it as I get to try out new products and tell my friends and family all about them (or in the case of the movie-I got advanced access to content to share).

I told you here that I was accepted to a new Bzz campaign for Elmer's Crafters' and X-Acto. Well, since then, I have been lucky enough to get my package to check out. The products are awesome and work so well to help with scrapbooking or crafty projects. My daughter said "I hope I get a craft assignment for homework soon so I can use these!"  I promise to get some show off our fun crafts done with these products shortly!!

My Review of Kid's Pretzel Making Kit

Originally submitted at CSN Stores

  • It's also a great way to share quality time together and instill a love of baking at an early age

Not an overstatement to say we LOVED it

4out of 5

Pros: Interactive, Entertaining, Fun

Best Uses: Group Activity, Indoor, Young Children, Creative Development, Family Time

Describe Yourself: Education Oriented, Stay At Home Parent, Parent Of Two Or More Children

Was this a gift?: No

It is not an overstatement to say my kids LOVED it and I thought it was a ton of fun! What a great activity to do as a family! We were able to make our own "homemade" pretzels in a quick easy way thanks to this awesome kit. There are a few things you have to have at home (like butter, water, baking soda and a mixing bowl), but other than those few things, everything else in in the kit. It made organizing this fun activity SOOO easy and we loved working on it together! ( I should mention that my husband and I did this with all four of our kids ages 2, 4, 6, and 7) The only thing that would have made this perfect was if there were enough aprons for all the kids! As it was we just shared and traded it around.

What the kids thought...
