Christmas is just around the corner and what do kids love?  To build and create!  That is where K’Nex comes in.  They offer sets for children of (almost) all ages.  My boys are constantly building and stacking things, from cans out of the pantry to the blocks in the playroom.  They love to create.  So I was super excited to get to try out a couple of new K’Nex building sets courtesy of Team Mom.

Here is an example of something you can build with this set:
