I cannot tell you how excited my boys were to open a box from the mail and find this fun Build Your Own Tank craft from CraftProjectIdeas.com! They were starting to get a major case of end-of-summer boredom and they went right to work building their tank.
I have been really busy the past month preparing for some major exams and my boys were starting to get sick of me being unavailable for the types of projects we normally do so this couldn’t have come at a better time.
CraftProjectIdeas.com has come out with a fun new line of boy crafts (THANK YOU!) that replace the glitter and girlie you find in most project kits with rockets and camouflage. If you have followed me for any amount of time you will know that one of the reasons I started this blog was to share more craft ideas for boys.
The kit came with everything we needed to build the tank, including glue, paint, stickers and a rocket launcher!
Once the glue was dry, they went right to work painting. I love the concentration on their faces as they painted their tank, especially the tongue sticking out. It had to be just right. Big brother had to make sure little brother wasn’t going to mess things up. 🙂
Then once the paint was dry, they added the fun stickers to make it look like a real-live tank complete with machine guns.
And then the fun began! I wasn’t sure how well the rocket launcher would work but it shot those rockets all the way across the house.
Isn’t that an awesome tank craft! Even my husband was impressed. 😉 And this has kept my boys entertained for hours as they’ve set up targets and tried to knock them down.
And here’s the best part!! CraftProjectIdeas.com has offered to give one of these fun crafts away to one of my readers. Entry is easy and since this isn’t a huge group giveaway, you will have a greater chance to win.
Easy entry options are below. Good Luck!
