Text-UR Foam Turns Crafting Into a Fun Sensory Experience for Children

Thank you to FibreCraft for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon and for providing additional products for our contest prize.  All opinions expressed are my own.

If your children like crafts (and my 6 year old really does!) they will love Text-UR Foam from FibreCraft. Text-UR Foam takes art to a whole new dimension . . . literally. This craft foam is the same spongy, cut-able version as the regular craft store foam, but with fun textures and 3D space-urs that make what otherwise would be ordinary projects three dimensional. With themed kits and free-for-all ones too, any child is sure to find something they would love to build and create with Text-UR foam.

We received the stand-up turtle, flower frame, stand-up bee, bug shapes, and multi-colored foam sheets kits. Each kit comes with the Text-UR Foam pieces that are pre-cut (all but the sheets kit) so you can just pop it out and start creating.

The Text-UR Foam itself comes in many textures like dotty, scaly, or bumpy, so it’s a great sensory experience just holding them. Creating the items is fun too and pretty simple so nearly any child preschool age and up could do it with a little help from an adult. This is certainly an entertaining, unique craft kit that is sure to delight children of all ages. I know that everyone in our family (including the adults) loved creating projects with the Text-UR Foam and it will be staple in my art cabinet from here on out.

Text-UR Foam is available at Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores, Meijer,, and A.C. Moore. It has packages priced from $2.99 to $8.99, so it’s very reasonably price for any budget.
