Celebrating the Radio Disney Music Awards with Aquabeads (GIVEAWAY INCLUDED!!)

 

 

Do you have a little one who loves to get creative?  Say hello to the Aquabeads Beginner’s Studio, complete with everything your little one will need to get the creative juices flowing and keep those beautiful creations coming.  Summer is the time us parents are most afflicted by the nasal-y whines of youngsters everywhere crying “I’m booorrrreeeedddd”, but not this summer, and not in this house!  Aquabeads to the rescue!  Aquabeads take arts & crafts play to a new level of creative fun that children of all ages will adore.  Children can create Aquabeads designs from the included templates (plus more to be found online) or they can let their imaginations run wild, there’s no limit to what they can come up with.  It’s as simple as place beads onto a layout tray, then spray with water to fuse the beads together.  Once dried, the masterpiece can be shared with friends and family, or given as thoughtful gifts full of personal flair.

 

 
 

The Aquabeads Beginner’s Studio comes with everything your little one will need.  The star-shaped bead case stores the 840 included beads with lots of room to hold more which was perfect for the Aquabeads we had lying around from previous sets we’ve bought.  The set will also come with a sprayer, bead pen, and the amazing bead peeler to life creations off the tray just ten minutes after spraying!  Everything you need is included so it makes the perfect gift for kids who are just getting started with Aquabeads.  The lid to the star-shaped case can be used as a bead tray to keep designs neat and tidy with minimal clean-up.  Be creative and make beautiful designs such as cakes, rainbow and animals!  Want to know the best part?  Just spray the creation with water and the beads stick together!  There’s no need for heat or ironing, making this a GREAT kit for self-motivated children like my little Jadey-bug.  She loves being able to do things completely on her own and she loves taking charge of all of her bead creations.

 

 
 

The Radio Disney Music Awards are just a couple short days away and with Aquabeads as a proud sponsor, you KNOW that means there’s some fun to be had!  The team of Aquabeads designers have been hard at work creating a true-to-size ARDY trophy from Aquabeads, and you won’t want to miss all the action happening on stage.  Make sure you tune into Disney Channel June 23rd at 8 pm to catch all of the fun and witness the awesome ARDY trophy the Aquabeads designers have come up with!

Stir Up Some Fun This Summer With the Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab

 

Are your kiddos like mine and already whining “I’m bored”, when it seems like summer just started?  Give your little ones some out of this world fun with Beaker Creatures from Learning Resources.  These mysterious creatures from tiny distant planets are heading to Earth in search of science adventures, and they need your help!  Your kids will LOVE dissolving the Beaker Creature Reactor Pods and seeing which creatures they’ll discover, and with 35 creatures in all to discover, the fun never ends!

 

 

The Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab has been a HUGE hit with my children, even my oldest (14 years old) who seems to be too cool for anything these days.  So, just what does this wacky looking reactor do?  It’s afun way to explore the colorful bubbling creature reaction that come from the Reactor Pods!  After placing one of two included Reactor Pods within the Super Lab’s center chamber, kids send water whirling through the tubes with the help of two hydroplungers, filling the chamber and triggering the amazing reaction (which can bubble up out of the chamber so plan ahead and lay something down…trust me!).  Once the reaction ends, kids can extract their Beaker Creatures collectibles and start classifying!

 

 

The working lab set also comes with the equipment and instructions needed to perform amazing real-world science experiments inspired by the creatures and their home planets.  The Beaker Creatures Liquid Reactor Super Lab also includes an exclusive full-size poster, two classification cards and two double-sided mini-posters: one side features a quiz filled with amazing real-world science facts, while the other features fun images of the creatures at play that combine to form a larger scene!

 

This summer, trigger a colorful reaction in your kiddos with these super cute, super fun Beaker Creatures.  What better way to inspire play that also teaches real-world science?  Now available are the single Beaker Creature Reactor Pods so the fun can keep coming all summer long!  You may even discover one of five limited-edition 24-Carat Creatures!
