LET’S CREATE: OUR REVIEW OF BUDDY BANK

the paint box paper bank buddy monster

If your little one loves creative activities look no further than Money Bank. This kit arrived in the mail and it was so much fun! We loved the packaging! This product is really a lot of fun! The Paint Box from Laion is one of our favorite products they have!

Here are a few of the features:

•Products are conformed to International Safety Standards

•Innovation – They care about early childhood development, they are dedicated in the development  of a line of arts and crafts products that are suitable for needs for young kids from 2 years old and up

•All the products are colorful and suitable for many ages

•For the monster bank buddy it is a kit includes all you need to make a cute paper money bank. Parents and kids can have fun making something during the holidays!

Buddy Bank

Everything is included in the kit to make a really cute bank. Kids get to use pattern cards, paint and design the look of the bank themselves.Following the directions, you’ll tape the two pieces together and then begin wrapping the paper body together using moist paper tape. It’s really easy and kids can help out too!

 

Buddy Bank

The directions are easy to read and also have a visual guide so kids can explain the process for each step you do together. This is great for young learners because it inspires them to use new words, explain what they see and also how to follow “steps”. If you allow them, preschoolers and Kindergarten age children could possibly complete the craft with little assistance.

Buddy Bank

Once it has fully dried, kids can begin painting. It’s so great for self expression and fine motor skills. Each task builds on the next. Let kids pick the colors, mix the colors and design the “look” of their bank. Remember it’s their vision so if they mix five colors together…no worries!

 

Buddy Bank

Once their bank is dry, kids can either cut out the eyes and facial features and apply them or paint/draw on a face themselves. Kids might also be inspired to use leftover collage items to design their bank. Just remember that when all the painting is done, you will need to seal it with the included clear gel. Again, the design of the bank is their choice. Let them guide the creation of the bank, there’s no right or wrong!

Buddy Bank

It’s a cute money bank that kids can use and decorate their room with. It also encourages beginning money management and of course it’s a creative project!

It says it is for 6+. Young kids can still participate most of the steps. Great experience for them to create something from scratch that develops patience, skill and creativity!

This was such a fun project and it would make a great gift!
