Today I've got a special treat - a new crafty giveaway and review to go with it. This way you can see how fun this prize truly is! It's all thanks to the lovely people at Artterro:
Arttero makes fun & eco-friendly arts and craft kits of all sorts. Bookmaking, dolls, jewelry, garden art, these are just some of the kits that they offer. Artterro is all about creativity.
Each kit is carefully curated to offer a delightful art experience for practically any age and skill level, and they include an ideas sheet full of inspiration to get you started. Their materials include many handmade, recycled and US-made components, and their packaging is minimal, recycled and reusable. With Artterro, kids and adults can truly unplug and enjoy art.
So how are the kits to use?
We got a chance to try out the Wool Felt Bug kit:
The package was small, but there was a surprising amount of supplies when we separated them out. We could have made more than half a dozen buggies with all this:
Since my youngest was under the recommended age, but still wanted to participate, we used some craft glue of our own for some of the fabrication, but the boys got to do a bit of hand sewing on theirs with the needles & embroidery floss from the kit.
I liked that because a lot of glue-only crafts tend to fall apart when the kids start playing with them, but ours haven't. Check out the bugs my little bugs made:
I wasn't sure if the kids would really stick with making their bugs - they have a tendency to get frustrated when crafts are too free form (unlike their mother), but the inspiration guide that was included gave them some good starting points and then they really took off on their own.
My oldest even decided to make layers of scales with sequins on his bug's tummy:
Overall I thought this was a fun, solid kit. It was nice that there was enough of everything for all 3 of them and we still have enough supplies for each of them to make another bug. A great gift idea to get the kids crafts too, so I'll be keeping these in mind next time we get a birthday invite.
I also like the variety of crafts they offer and that they aren't gender specific. Or limited to just being for kids - I kind of want to do this Garden Art Kit all by myself:
Want to try them out too?
