Road Test :: Colorific Brain Noodles
Little Miss and I were lucky enough to trial the fantastic Brain Noodle ‘Primary’ pack from Colorific. What better way to spend a wet Melbourne day than to get crafty?
Colorific are an Aussie owned company that create all sorts of craft products and toys for your little ones.
Brain Noodles are big, fat pipe cleaners that you can do all sorts of wonderful things with, especially if you’re a bit creative. The great thing about the Brain Noodle pack is that you don’t need to be particularly crafty or imaginative because everything you need, including instructions, comes in the box!
From our packet, we made a panda, lion, parrot and butterfly. The instructions were easy to follow and I was pretty chuffed with the end result, even if they were a little wonky! Little Miss loved the parrot and was more than happy to fly it around the lounge room.
The pack is recommended for kids over 5, so I did most of the work, but Little Miss enjoyed sticking the eyes on to our creatures and playing with the left over bits and pieces. I’m sure older kids would have a great time trying to make the animals themselves, even if Mum and Dad need to help with some of the more fiddly bits.
The great thing about the Brain Noodles is that they can be reused over and over again, so if you want to have a go making something else with them, then you can. When I’m feeling a bit more creative, I might just have to give that a go! For now, we have a few more animals to add to the ever-growing collection on the book case.
Thanks Colorific for giving Little Miss and I something fun to do on a day when the weather gods had other ideas.
