Stick Together Craft Kits
This year has been mentally draining for all of us, especially young kids who can’t fully grasp the gravity of what’s going on with the pandemic and the world in general. Making time for quiet, hands-on activities like puzzles and crafts can not only give kid’s the peace and quiet they deserve but can also improve the brain’s ability to produce dopamine, which helps with concentration, memory, and motivation as well as help boost overall mental health. Instead of having kids do yet another jigsaw puzzle, switch things up and give them something they really love—stickers!
StickTogether is similar to paint by number where the child uses a coded poster board and a color key code that tells them where each sticker goes on the board. Once all of the stickers have been placed on the board, a fun pixelated image forms that they can hang on their wall or give as a gift! With over 40 kits to choose from, there is something for everyone! StickTogether craft kits make a great gift for kids ages 5 and up. It’s fun for adults too!
