KidArtLit Review November 2021
KidArtLit is the art-kit-meets-storytime subscription box! These Parents’ Choice GOLD Award®-winning boxes include gorgeous hardback books, open-ended art kits for two, special author notes & illustrated instructions to inspire a lifelong love of reading & creating in kids 3-8 years old. They kindly sent us this box for review.
I’m often asked to recommend children’s subscription boxes this time of year, and KidArtLit is one of the first that comes to mind. This will be my 6th box and so far I have loved all of them. The books are beautiful (and definitely worth hanging on to) and the art projects are so fun. This is a great option for littles!
Each KidArtLit box arrives in a delightful custom package and includes a new hardback picture book and process-based art projects with all the supplies for two kids.
You can choose between two delivery sizes to fit your family’s needs:
- Spark boxes come with 1 art kit
- Deluxe boxes come with 2 art kits
You’ll also get illustrated guides that walk you through each project, notes from the book’s author, and more.
Here’s a closer look at the November KidArtLit box. We are reviewing the Deluxe Box.
Book: Before We Sleep
Tuck into this month’s picture book, Before We Sleep by author Giorgio Volpe and illustrator Paulo Proietti! Follow the loving friendship of a fox and a dormouse as they prepare for winter hibernation, and cuddle up in a sweet message “I will be there when you wake.”
Art Kit #1 – Rolled Beeswax Candles
For our first art project we are making candles. We received the following….
- beeswax sheets
- cotton wicks
- candle stick holders
Our first project is easy and fun. Perfect for little hands, making beeswax candles is actually quite simple as you use the warmth from your hands to roll, form, etc…… These can be used at home once completed or given as a gift.
Art Kit #2 – Paper Maché Luminarias
For our second project we are making Luminarias. We received the following….
- tissue paper
- liquid glue
- small dish for glue
- latex balloons
- deli cups
- label tabs to secure balloons
- craft sticks
- electric votive candle
- sponge brushes
Our second project is a little more involved and maybe better for older children. But with that being said, I’m sure younger children would have a ton of fun with this. We are to blow up the ballon, brush on the glue, cover it with the tissue paper (leaving the bottom of the balloon exposed) and once it is dry we pop the balloon. You can then add an electric votive candle and enjoy your beautiful creation.
KidArtLit Review November 2021 – Final Thoughts
KidArtLit is easily one of my favorite kid’s subscription boxes, but I’m sure I’ve told you that before. I just absolutely love the books we receive, and the art projects are organized and fun. I appreciated how much time and energy goes in to creating the boxes each month. The art projects are individually packaged, the instructions are easy to follow, and the books are keepsakes. I just simply LOVE our KidArtLit deliveries!
