I love trying out new craft projects with my kids, especially during the holiday season when they are in the mood to be kind and creative. Traditionally, we make homemade Christmas ornaments every year out of salt dough and give one to each family member. However, this year we decided to take our creativity a notch and give each family member an Oonies Christmas Wreath.
Playing with Oonies have been the most fun we have had in a long time and are the coolest way to create! There are endless ways to use them and helps to keep kids entertained for hours.
How To Make An Oonies Creation
For starters, we decided to make a holiday wreath. Oonies are so easy to use that even younger children can make things on their own. For my daughter, all I had to do was open the box and quickly go over the directions with her. From then on, she was off in her own world of creating holiday wreaths, winter animals and more.
To use the Oonies by Moose Toys system, simply place an Oonies pellet inside the inflator, push down the lever and watch the pellet magically grow into an Oonie!
As a mom, the best part about Oonies is that no glue, paint or water are needed to make Oonies stick together. Therefore, there’s no mess to clean up afterwards. Simply put the leftover pellets along with the inflator back into the box and you are done.
Another cool aspect about Oonies is the endless opportunities to be creative. Field Trip Girl enjoyed making the Christmas wreath using the basic set. You can also buy add on kits that are theme based or just a plain refill pack.
On top of my kids wish list is the Monster Mania refill kit. There is also the Ocean Kit, Pet Kit and Jungle Kit that are available or you can simply buy the bundle kit which has all four of them together. Plus, Oonies make the perfect winter time activity when everyone is stuck inside with cabin fever.
This Christmas my kids and I plan to do more holiday creating with Oonies. I think ornaments for the tree would be a nice touch, along with a Oonies Santa Claus and snowman for the mantle.

This new innovative toy definitely gets a thumbs up from my family. Learn how to use Oonies by watching this video, and get started on creating your own “ooniments” with your kiddos!
