You are here: Kids Keep Them Busy Craft for kids

Craft for kids

Musical boxUS is the land of opportunities as they say. It does have lots to offer to our kids as well. I really like some of the things here like the libraries with access to unlimited books that too categorized by age groups, reading programs they have for kids with rewards that mean a LOT for the kids, goal being to get them into reading.  There are also fun activities hosted by big stores like Lowes ,Home depo (there might be many more) where they encourage kids to build crafts (with adult help of course). Today I am going to share one of the crafts that my Son did last year during Valentine’s day. It’s a very cute heart shaped musical box (as seen in pic). I was very happy to see the craft when it got home. I still remember the moment he got it home & was so excited about the music that starts when you open the box. He figured out (quite fast) how to stop it even if the lid was open. It is amazing to see the kids involvement in making the craft with such enthusiasm. Even my younger one would get excited about the event. Even though he was not eligible (age wise) to participate, he would still have fun watching his Big brother work on the craft. He would also pick up a hammer, wear the apron & pretend to be busy building something, just to get involved :) These events turn into wonderful memories for our kids. Not only does it help them create & learn something new but it’s also an opportunity for the parents to bond with their children. I would highly recommend all parents to get involved in such events & build wonderful sweet memories to cherish in future.

LAS VEGAS (AP) Police were called after hundreds of job seekers on Thursday flooded a board meeting for the new Oakland Raiders stadium in Las Vegas and turned irate when they discovered they'd been had by a Amari Cooper Jerseys hoax.A flyer promoting "pre-job recruitment sign-ups" attracted more than 700 people to a regularly scheduled meeting of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board.Tensions flared among some attendees after officials explained there were no jobs as of yet on the $1.9 billion project, which has many steps Bruce Irvin Jerseys that must be completed before construction can begin.Las Vegas police closed off access to the county building's parking Charles Woodson Jerseys lots after the size of the crowd ballooned.Board chairman Steve Hill denounced the flyer after the meeting, saying, "If folks were brought to the meeting under a false pretense, I think that's too bad, that obviously shouldn't happen."But he added that the attendance "exhibits a real Latavius Murray Jerseys desire on the part of a number of people in the community to go to work."The fake flyer specifically targeted black men and women and advertised for union and non-union positions.Raiders executives and members of the group that the team has assembled to carry out the project spoke at Thursday's meeting and said they are working on an agreement that will address minority hiring and reaffirmed that they will meet a state-mandated 15 percent contracting of small businesses."The Raiders take this obligation very seriously," Raiders Executive Vice President Dan Ventrelle said of the so-called community benefits plan, which will outline the hiring of a diverse workforce. "We embrace working within the outline of the legislation and meeting all of its requirements."The board is expected to discuss the plan at its August meeting, as well as an agreement that would allow the football team of Khalil Mack Jerseys the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to use the 65,000-seat stadium that will be built near the Las Vegas Strip. The board must approve those two and other documents before any ground breaking. The team wants to play in Sin City starting in 2020.Guests of hotels and other lodging facilities in the Las Vegas area are contributing $750 million through a room tax increase. On Thursday, the board learned the tax increase yielded more than $13.1 million from March through May. That's 16 percent ahead of projections.The team and the NFL are expected to contribute $500 million to the project. In addition, the team has secured a $650 million loan from Bank of America to cover the rest of the project's cost.
