Powder Art Giveaway

I think all kids need creative activities in their busy schedule. Whether it is creative/dramatic play, arts & crafts, music or dance-kids need a creative outlet. So many times arts & crafts projects are messy and expensive. Powder Art is good clean fun!

From Powder Art

Powder Art,™is a mess-free twist on paint by numbers and a great activity for kids to explore their artistic abilities and build their reasoning and motor skills.

“We wanted to create a product that was mom-approved and kid-worthy. Through research, we’ve found that kids love art projects and working with colors in a fun, unique way. Moms appreciate that Powder Art is educational, safe, non-toxic, made in the U.S.A and most of all, virtually mess-free,” said Mike Gipson, general manager of the specialty products division for Crescent.

The innovative peel and paint art activity uses revolutionary dry paint powder made of recycled paper, instead of paint. Kids need little assistance to complete the art project due to the user-friendly paint palette tray of colors and design boards with peel off stickers. With easy-to-use paint-by-number designs, Powder Art allows kids to choose to follow the color guide or they can explore their creativity by either designating different colors for their design or mixing colors together for a customized picture.

You can purchase any of the 8 different Powder Art kits from their website OR you can win the Bible Stories kit right here at Mommy Babble.

Preacher Creature Book Review and Giveaway

Mike Thaler has written more than 200 books for children, including Scholastic’s bestselling “Black Lagoon” series, which introduced “monster teacher” Mrs Green in The Teacher from the Black Lagoon 20 years ago.


Mike is also the creator of “The Letterman” from PBS’ longtime educational show “Electric Company”. Mr Thaler is known as “America’s Riddle King” and travels to classrooms worldwide helping children and teachers create their own stories riddles and books.

Eleven years ago, at age 60, Thaler devoted his life to Jesus Christ and he says, “life has gone from black and white to glorious Technicolor.” Today he uses his imaginative storytelling and passion for Christ in his new series “Tales from the Back Pew”. He says it’s “Black Lagoon goes to church.” These books are published by ZonderKids and are for ages 6-9.

I have read one book in the series, Preacher Creature Strikes on Sunday, and I have shared it with a few children of varying ages. This is a great book for kids who have never been to church or who are maybe moving to a new church. Thaler does a good job of expressing a child’s fear of the unknown and what the child may have heard about church.

There are very long songs with a thousand verses, and just when you think you’re done, they go back to the beginning and start all over again. And you have to stand the whole time. It’s sort of like the Pledge of Allegiance…only longer. And then, instead of paying you for singing, they collect money.

Of course in the end the child enjoys church and can’t wait to go back next Sunday. The illustrations in the books are beautiful and imaginative. Jared Lee is the illustrator and he has worked with Thaler for over 30 years.This would be a great book for a child new to a Protestant, main stream denominational church setting, similar to what I grew up in. The children I know and shared this book with come from either an Assemblies of God or non-denominational/Pentecostal background and they were unable to relate the church experiences in this book. We all enjoyed the way the child in book shared the Old Testament stories of Moses, Noah, and Jonah.

You can enter to win the book:
