Thaddeus is a crafty kid; he always has been, and I hope he will always be. As far back as I can remember, he’s always wanted to do some craft, even if it was just helping me by handing me the color string I needed or by helping me sort the crafts before starting. So when I was given the opportunity to receive samples of 3D text-UR Foam kits to review from Fibre-Craft Materials Corp., I was all for it, and I knew that Thaddeus would be more than thrilled to do this review!
Kids love creating with text-UR Foam because they take crafts to a new level with their combinations of raised patterns and 3D space-urs, they are easy to do with the peel, stick, and stack technique, they stand out, and they come in bright colors. They also have six different textures; wavy, dotty, scaly, stripes, bumpy, and terry cloth.
You can find fun product ideas on the text-UR Foam website. The kits are super easy to do, and each come with instructions on how to put together your little creature. Thaddeus had no problems making any of his crafts. The only problem that I found with them is that they are a little too easy for him, and he’d get them completed within a short time and was wanting to do more. Which, I guess isn’t a bad thing!
You can find Fibre-Craft’s text-UR Foam kits at Michaels, Joann’s Meijer, A.C. Moore, and on Amazon. They are priced at $2.99 to $8.99 per kit, which makes doing crafts with your kids affordable.
The standard package is a $27.95 value and includes one each – Shape Kit – The bug kit, frame kit (flower theme), Bee Standup, Turtle Standup kit, and foam sheet kit (multi-colored sheet set). This is the set I chose to review.
The crafty package is a $23.96 value and includes one shape kit, two foam sheet kits (multi-colored sheet set), and one owl kit. This kit is designed more for your child to be creative and make their projects.
