2011 Holiday Gift Guide - Orb factory Ocean 3D

These days children like to spend more time glued to the television screen or playing video games rather than expanding their creativity so anything that can get them off the television screen is a winner in my book.  If you feel the same way then you should definetly check out The Orb Factory and I am sure you will find plenty of activities to entertain your child without them having to be glued to a screen all day.  The Orb Factory offers a broad selection of fun crafts and activities that your children can create with little or no help at all from you.

Here is just a sampling of what they offer.

Happily Ever After Jewelery Box

My Jungle Adventure

The Orb Factory was kind enough to provide me with the 3-D Ocean Magic  activity kit from their sticky mosaics original line of products.  Although it is for ages five and older I let my 3 year old work on it with my seven year old which turned out nice because my seven year old was able to help his little brother.  This set included everything pictured below.
The kids had such fun working together to complete this project.   After they finished their neon fishies they were able to put on the 3-D glasses and watch as the fish came to life.  The 3-D part was the coolest part about the activity and my three year old was so amazed by the 3-D effects,  he just couldnt figure it out.  It was so nice spending quality time with them without a T.V. on or a computer screen or video screen.  It takes me back to simpilar times when all you needed was a good craft or activity to keep you entertained.  Let's face it a craft or activity is a lot more creative and mind expanding than a screen! 

BUY IT:  You can purchase the 3-D Ocean Magic for only $16.99 on
