Get building then racing with K’NEX + a Giveaway

My kids have been going a bit stir crazy this week as it has been raining non-stop. To some, that is not a big deal and most kids know what to do, but mine are born and raised here in Texas where it hardly ever rains. Ha! The first day of rain was great as they got their rain gear on and headed outside to play, but by day three, I heard those dreaded words, “Mom, I’m bored!” Not only that, but the fighting between them is driving me mad. So, the other day, after the third fight of the morning I brought out a couple of K’nex set to push the kids to stop fighting and instead get building!

For the first time in days, the kids, working together with my brother, who, of course, had to get in on the fun, worked together to get building. They started with the Turbo Jet 2-in-1 Building Set! The girls separated the parts while the boys began looking through the directions and before I knew it, they were each building different section of the supersonic jet. With over 400 K’NEX rods and connectors, as well as a battery-powered motor they had their work cut out for them. Within no time, they had the jet ready with rolling wheels, an open-and-close cockpit, and motor ready to go. get building TURBO JET 2-IN-1 BUILDINGSET

My brother was so funny as he took total pride in the fact that he helped the kids build such a cool jet.

The whole afternoon the kids played non-stop with their K’NEX Turbo Jet and it was amazing to see smiles all around.

The next morning instead of even starting any arguments or fights, Little Man came running in asking if they could build the second set that K’NEX sent us, the Revvin’ Racecar! Of course, I had no problem saying yes and admit that I got giddy watching all three kids get excited about building something cool.

The Revvin’ Racecar is another 2-in-1 set, where kids can choose between building a race car or a  powerful ATV, using the 370 K’NEX rods and connectors. It also comes with a battery-powered motor.

The best part of both of these K’NEX Sets is that the kids love putting them together. The K’NEX rods slide into place easily and if a mistake is made, they slide right back out, just as easily. Then once the build is together, it is pretty tough and holds up to minor playtime. get building and race

In the end, it is great watching the kids get building and then racing rather than arguing and fighting! Learn more by going to
