Blog Hopping with the Junior Stamping Kit


In celebration of crafting with our kids, we have developed this "Junior Stamper" kit targeted for ages 4 through 14.  The kit includes a whole assortment of products from stamps, ink, neon papers, coloring pages, twistable crayons, markers, window markers to stickers, washi tape, and scissors (safe for 4+).  There is a huge list of supplies and many of them reusable for a long time to come.  It's important to celebrate our children and so the kit is complete with a "Junior Stamper" Certificate of achievement.  The kit is absolutely loaded with value....gotta love that!



Jesta is part of our Simon team.  Jesta's son, Will, used his kit to make lots of great projects.   She said Will was overjoyed to get the kit to work with.  Can you believe how beautifully he colored this page!?  Here Will is with his coloring page and a birthday card:





For my son Jaxon, I'll be honest.  It wasn't really about the finished project.  It was about the fun he had creating art..... and something really special that happened that I had not anticipated - his eyes completely and totally lit up when he opened his very own Junior Stamper Kit box. 



Something about getting his own kit made him feel so very special.  AND I must say.... when he saw that the coloring book had our dog, Simon, on the page, he squealed with delight.  Kristina Werner did a fabulous job designing the coloring book pages!   Jax was so excited to work with the kit, he actually climbed right onto the table and started stamping and washi taping his pages immediately.  He is definitely one happy boy.



I love that each kit has unique stamps and an assortment of washi tape.  It's individualized and reminds me of collecting trading cards when I was a kid.  It was fun to see which cards were included in each pack.  This way if you have multiple kids in your household - they will be able to share their stamps!  (I keep telling Jax that sharing is a GOOD thing)

We sent the kits out to a fantastic assortment of kiddos to try and give us their feedback.  Please be sure to stop by and see the creativity at work. 

If your child has created art and you'd like to share it, please be sure to visit our "Children's Challenge".  You can link up their work using inlinkz and they can see what other kids have been up to this summer!

It's not over yet!  Do you want to win a $25 gift certificate to Simon?  You can comment below and tell us a bit about what makes your child(ren) excited.  Jax LOVES to get mail.  He also loves to make his baby sister giggle.  One lucky winner will receive a $25 Simon Shopping Spree! YAH!

- In stamping fun (for all ages!)

  18. My kids love to sit down and listen to their dad read a book out loud. They've loved it ever since they were tiny and now they are starting High School this fall! They still beg him to read to them any evening we have together as a family. They also get really excited about making cards together for a charitable cause. That's one of the things that makes them more excited than anything else - service. Love my teens!!!

  19. In answer to today's blog...I don't have children, but I was a teacher for many years with special education children of all ages. They always love it when I brought in stamps, markers, crayons, decorative scissors etc...We would make cards and things for various holiday's and they had so much fun. So I can imagine how much a child would love to get this kit and make things. I would love to win a gift certificate also...thanks Hedi for offering it today.

  23. My kids love washi tape. And since they like to display their art work on their wall, we use it to tape it on their wall. Greatest thing is they can rearrange their art work whenever that want! It is great for painted walls. They have been painting and making sculptures with Model Magic.

  32. My children are grown. They loved to do all kinds of crafty things when they were young. Once my boys moved on to other things, I had a craft night once a week with my younger nieces. They loved anything & everything with bling. Now the students in the special education classroom I work in get to use my supplies. They love stamps & ink! These kits look great for kids.

  34. I don't have any kids, but my nephew is really into trains and little animal figurines. He's just getting into drawing/coloring. This kit looks so fantastic! I know I would have loved it as a child--shoot, even now I'd probably have some fun with it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This kit is just awesome and I know, that the kids are going to just love it. I have 8 grandkids aged 4 to 16 and they all just loves to come here and craft, and kids are far better crafters than most people seems to think, and they have such wonderful ideas always. All my kids have made tons of awesome things over the years and I know, they would be thrilled with a set like this. ¤ of them actually just went home hto get back to school here last week-end after a week here, so maybe I should share some of their great projects with you guys.

  36. How fun! My daughters both love different things, oddly enough! My oldest is a bit of a perfectionist, and loves to craft! My youngest also loves to craft...but is kind of like like a mini hurricane with what she leaves behind! They also love to help others!

  56. I so love that you are showing us some things from the kids. I love when kids are excited about being creative. My kids are grown now, but when they were kids, they always got excited to have some new art supplies. One time a huge craft store went out of business and we happened to stop in on their last day in business. They were selling a cart full of whatever you could fit for $20/cart. They had a ball! Things that I would usually say "No you can't have that." I was saying "Sure, why not?!!" We ended up getting something like $2000 worth of supplies and had a ball sharing them with our friends and their school. That was one of the best and most exciting creative adventures ever.

  57. What a thoughtful gift idea for parents!! I don't have a kid but I've a baby cousin. He gets excited with the mirror. He'll do many different funny faces in front of the mirror and laugh hysterically.

  58. My 5yr old loves to make things. He gets so worked up every month when his Kiwi Crate arrives and he LOVED the Big Picture Class summer class we did this summer where he got to fill in his own SMASH book. The Michaels passport program was also a huge hit with him this summer.

  68. I don't have any children, but I remember doing my first embroidery project (of a cat) in kindergarten and being sent to the crafts teacher to show it off (and getting praised). Well, I still like cats and I still like to be praised. I love it when a card really comes together and other people come to visit my blog and leave sweet comments.
    Love the pictures of your proud and happy kids! That's what it's all about isn't it?

  71. I really want this kit for my youngest niece, she is turning 8 this month. She is like her aunty, she loves to craft. When she comes to visit thats all we do. She lives so far away and I think this would be so neat to send to her so she could craft with her own stuff. Her biggest loves, painting, dancing, and being daddys princess.

  76. Well, I don't have any children, but the child inside me gets pretty excited by anything in RAINBOW COLORS! I have to over-rule her; I don't need five or six blenders even if they do come in a rainbow of colors. Alas.
