Keep The Family Busy With Spin Master

Collaborative Post

Keeping the family busy during the summer months is always a challenge! We are always on the look out for exciting ways to keep busy! While we love to get outside and have a lovely garden to play in, the weather isn’t always very good, or perhaps we can’t get out the house. So finding things to keep everyone busy without resorting to screen time is really important to me.

Spin Master Toys sent us two fabulous toys to help keep busy! We were sent two creative toy sets, a Kumi kreator and a Nail Stamper. We couldn’t wait to try them out!

Go Glam Nail Stamper

Go Glam Nail Stamper is great way to have a pamper day at home! The pack includes as fabulous bag to store the kit in (with an emery board attached to make sure nails are in tip top shape!). The kit is two colours of polish, a variety of patterns to use in the stamper, a clear top coat and the nail stamping machine!

The nail polish goes on really easily, and dries quickly! I was surprised that the stamper is really easy to use. Just load it with the design you want to stamp on your nails and stamp! It was so easy to use that my 5 year old daughter has really enjoyed setting up a “salon” and helping paint my nails. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve had such well cared for nails in a long time! I think this would be ideal for a tween who wants to have a pamper session at home!

Kumi Kreator

The Kumi Kreator creates beautiful bracelets and necklaces easily. I remember spending an entire summer making “bracelets for friends by hand, it took hours! This machine speeds the process up and every bracelet comes out looking perfect!

You do need to set it up very carefully, but once we got the hang of it was easy to use. It’s definitely best suited to a child aged 9+ just because you do need a little patience to set it up correctly. We watched the handy videos on how to set it up properly, and loved making our very own bracelets. So far we haven’t tried making necklaces yet. But it is on our list to do over the Bank Holiday weekend! I would say that the Kumi Kreator does work best on a flat surface – we took photos of it outside but we found it worked best on a table.

Other Toys Keeping The Children Busy This Summer

So what else is continuing to keep the children busy? Well, we all love board games, and Baa Baa Bubbles is continuing to provide us with hours of fun. The poor sheep is getting dragged out into the garden to be played with – they’re using extra bubbles on him to make the game even MORE fun!

My daughter is enjoying playing with her Hatchimals too, they get regular make overs in the Hatchimal Glitter salon! She has her 6th Birthday coming up this summer and I suspect that there will be a few Hatchimals on her wish list!
