"Kelly Kits encourage art play using a wide variety of creative tools & materials beyond what coloring books can offer. Each kit contains all of the tools & materials needed for the activities. To increase functionality for homeschooling parents, each activity includes an instruction card with an enrichment idea to adapt the art activity to a school lesson. Kelly Kits are designed to encourage creativity & teach!" (Taken and adapted from their website)
Kelly Kits is basically every Mom's saving grace. How many times have you gone to do a fun arts and crafts activity with your child to find out that you are missing something? I know it has happened to me a lot of times, more than I'd like to admit.
Kelly Kits offers craft kits, complete with EVERYTHING you need for that particular craft. You can sign up for a monthly or annual mail subscription and they also have gift packs, sensory gift packs and even birthday party packs!
Owen was so excited to get his kit in the mail, and we had to open it right away!
With your membership you also have a free online membership. This allows you additional instructions, videos, and additional contests. Since O was sooo excited, we did not utilize the online function. Owen is very particular about his arts and crafts and I like to make sure it is 100% him and his ideas, so I thought this would be best for us. (He's a bit of a perfectionist, and if he tried to "copy" something and it didn't match exactly he would be very upset).
Here's what was included in our kit:
Owen went straight to work drawing his shape on the sponge..
And cut it out by himself with the little scissors included in the kit.
We then applied the paint and printed on the paper
In honor of the Olympics, which had just started...O had made a flag 100% on his own. He was so proud! We added some marker to give the flag a pole...and yes, O decided what side he wanted his flag pole on! ; )
He was so proud of his flag, and I was of him. He did this all on his own, with the help of Kelly Kits!
You can check out Kelly Kits through their Website, Facebook page, Twitter, Pinterest,Youtube, and Flicker.
