My daughter made a comment yesterday about the Halloween decorations and costumes she saw at our local grocery store. She said, “It’s not even September and there is Halloween stuff out”!

I realized I have SO MUCH Halloween awesomeness on here already I decided to create a single post highlighting it all. Ya know, easy to find, easy access!

Easy Fun for Kids & WIN a $50 Pom Tree Kids Prize Pack

Alice has been having a BLAST playing with all the wonderful goodies Pom Tree Kids sent us.

Easy No Mess Fun For Kids Pom Tree Kids

Pom Tree Kids Products Pom Tree Kids Stickers Pom Tree Kids Coloring Pages

The Pom Tree kits are easy to use, colorful and fun. Kids can just have fun with them exploring and building their own imagination. Interlocking foam pieces are much like a puzzle which exercises their problem solving skills.  The kits are made up of interlocking foam pieces, colorfully displayed cardboard, felt and foam stickers. All the kits coordinate with other kits and are interchangeable. Alice plays with her kits for hours creating and recreating all kinds of fun scenes and works of art.

Alice decided to open the Feathered Friends Post Office 3D kit right away. We got everything out, had snacks and water on hand and we were ready to play!

Pom Tree Kids Playing

The pieces interlock and are easy to put together.

Pom Tree Kids Putting It Together

Alice LOVED putting the kit together and was able to do it almost all by herself.

Pom Tree Kids Building Pom Tree Kids Post Office

Since then we have created many fun projects using the kits from Pom Tree.

Alice and I made a foam stick scarecrow.

We used the foam sticks, felt flower stickers and chenille stems from the Pom Tree Mega Kit. We also used some felt, glitter Mod Podge and googly eyes.

First we glued the sticks together. Alice brushed the glitter Mod Podge over the sticks. I cut a hat and nose from felt. Then Alice glued on the eyes, nose, hat, chenille stems for hair and drew on a proper scarecrow smile.  Alice added a felt ribbon and felt flower on the hat.

Isn’t it super cute!!?

We also followed the directions inside the Pom Tree Mega Kit and created a Foam Craft Stick Flower.  Actually, Alice made the Flower all by herself! It’s wonderful that these kits are kid friendly and easy to use. It gives them such a sense of pride and accomplishment to create by themselves.
