My boys LOVE painting, coloring and doing any kinds of crafts. The messier the better. I don’t mind them getting messy while playing/creating, I feel that is half the fun. Everything we use is easily cleaned up. So just let them go, be creative, and watch the joy it brings them.
I am one for always referring to other peoples ideas for creativity. I’m not the most creative person, but I can take an idea and put my own spin on it.
I was recently approached by a family owned business who is helping moms like me. The business is called Keepsakecrates. You can find them at: keepsakecrates.org
What they do is provide a subscription box (which is shipped directly to your door) which includes an arts & crafts project inside. It will include everything you need for the craft. Paint, stickers, paper, canvas, everything you would need to complete the craft.
We received our box a few weeks ago (in exchange for my honest review). It was an adorable monkey themed painting. My boys ripped open the box and their excitement was adorable.
So we sat and I showed them the picture the came as a part of the instructions and let them create their masterpieces. Remember art is in the eye of the beholder. Ha!
They loved every second of getting messy, painting, and doing it their way. The end results did not look anything like the directions showed, however they could not have been more proud of their work. I loved it as well.
They will put together the perfect box of crafts/supplies based on your family’s needs.
