Super fun project to learn about the sea and then create a custom frame afterwards. My daughter and I did this together and it was great bonding. Now she wants to change the picture in the frame every day! I will definitely be buying more products.
I bought theses for my five year old great nephew and three year old niece. They couldn't wait to get started at 7:00am the next morning! Their mom is a first grade teacher, and said she loved the entire box and all of the activities. It made learning fun!
An excellent arts & craft gift that kept my 5 year old grandaughter engaged for several hours and had a lovely and beautiful outcome.
Play value: This was a project vs a toy We got this for our 5 year old granddaughter to make as a Christmas present for her parents. The kit was great, including everything needed for the project. We split the project into 2 sessions. (1) She handled the painting part well. (2) She did a great job with the shell design. She got BORED with having to hold each shell for so 20 seconds to get each one to bond and some were downright tricky to get to adhere; she asked for help to get them all glued on. The completed frame is mantle worthy but, at least for us, the project was a little beyond our granddaughter's skill set. She likes playing with the toy shark; it got added to an "imagination" game she frequently plays. This child is normally a book addict, however the book and the info on the different shells, the nature info part of the kit, didn't catch her interest at all.
My granddaughter loves crafts. Making a picture frame she could use made it especially fun.
I sent this as a birthday gift the recipient was so excited to use it! They can't wait to put a picture in from our beach vacation :)
We purchased this for our 7 year old granddaughters birthday. She couldn't wait to make it! Thank you, Fat Brain Toys for making educational toys and for toys that create lasting memories! We would purchase this again, she had so much fun creating with this kit!
I purchased 2 of these shell frame kits for my 5 and 6 year old granddaughters for Easter. After decorating eggs, they each decorated their shell frames. The paint was easy to apply and dried quickly. The shells glued on easily and each took their new frame home to use. I marked these as "rarely plays with it" only because they are picture frames with glass photo covers and they aren't meant to be played with buy viewed and enjoyed as a memory of a fun time making the frame and for the memory of the photo. I think this is a great gift and was well received by both my granddaughters and their parents.
Made well and lots of fun to make.
great toy for the little ones in the house
My niece recently spent the week on her 1st adventure at the ocean. This "DIY" seashell-themed picture frame was the perfect project for her complete, lots of fun and imagination went into putting it together. I love that she'll put one of her 1st memories of being at the ocean in her seashell frame that she made.
The "play value" question doesn't really apply as it is not really a toy. She loved making/decorating the frame and is very proud of it. It makes a great gift!
