CONTEST IS OVER! CONGRATS TO STEPH, COMMENT #51!
Like I said in my previous post, Summertime is not always summery! Rain here in Washington comes and goes, but mostly comes! So, entertaining the kids on days like those, well, can sometimes be quite challenging. I like to challenge my kids somehow each day. So when I was able to review the Crayola Chalkboard Floor Puzzle, I was excited!
We received it and at first, my son wanted to put it together. I must say he did pretty good too. But he did put some pieces that were not suppose to be together, together. I tried to encourage him to use the pictures on the puzzle pieces to put the puzzle together, but quickly he became discouraged 🙁 So, I then asked him if I could help out. He agreed and together, well mostly ME, put the puzzle together. It probably took me about 15 minutes to do, while my children were excitedly running around me and onto the puzzle, ugh, breaking it apart again 🙁
I finally got it together and my son and daughter had about 10 minutes of fun coloring on it. Then they stepped on it and broke it apart again 🙁 The thing I wish that this puzzle came with was maybe an adhesive type backing and board, so that when the puzzle is pieced together, it can stay put longer then 10 minutes and the kids can enjoy it longer. It just came apart to quickly and easily in my opinion. It is a really fun idea and they kids do like it, it just needs to stay together better.
All in all, my kids were excited to “try” and put it together, had fun coloring with chalk on it and had even more fun tearing it apart! It is now in a box in the playroom and we have put it together a few times since the first time upon my sons request. I am saving it more for when he is a bit older and can really enjoy what it is all about more.
