Creating Our Own Fun with the Best Toys #TargetToys

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone, I seriously love #TargetToys.

Target is my happy place. There, I've said it. You can find me at my Target 2-3 times a week, with a smile on my face. And just like most other moms, I try my hardest to avoid the toy section just to avoid the inevitable fight and mom guilt. Thankfully, Target has the best toys to help your kids use their imagination and create their own toys, both in store and online. You can visit the Target Toy Emporium (available online) for some great brands that are designed to specifically help children explore, discover, be active, imagine, create and build. These are the most fun parts of childhood. 

Check out what we bought at Target, created and played with at home. 
We bought these fun Racing Wind Cars from Kiwi Crate to build and race at home and had a blast doing it. You know what I love about these type of toys? I love how proud my girls look when they've completed something on their own (with a little help from their mama of course). 
This kit from Kiwi Crate was perfect because it included enough supplies to make two. When you have two little ones, very close in age, this is very important. The age range on this activity is between 4-8 years old, but I had fun racing them too.
My oldest daughter was very excited to get started on this activity. I seriously have created a monster, a crafting monster. All this little one wants to do is make things, just like her mama. She doesn't just see a blank piece of paper, she sees a future paper airplane. 
You can check out the video tutorial I created for a step by step on how we created our fun wind cars, but for now, here are just a few peeks at all the fun we had. My littlest was STOKED when she realized decorating with stickers was the first step.  
I love to see the smile on their faces when they feel a sense of accomplishment. She was so proud seeing her car come together before her eyes and with her own hands. Creativity is something that should always be nurtured, especially in a day and age when art is put on the back burner. The crafts and toys found in Target's Toy Emporium (available online) do just that. 
 
As basic as the materials are in this kit, it makes for a fun and interesting afternoon not spent in front of the TV. This would make a great indoor or rainy day activity to have on hand or stock up on. Don't forget to take advantage of all the savings that Target has to offer with the Red Card and the Cartwheel app.
