Review: KidArtLit Subscription Box

June 8, 2017

Books / Craft

KidArtLit I’m a teacher with a penchant for picture books and art projects.
I want to raise kind and creative kids.
Despite being committed to alla these things, I still often feel like all the ideas have left the building when I’m looking for arty inspiration.
On many an occasion, I’ve been supremely exasperated by an art or craft project gone pear-shaped.

Despite living in a home surrounded by books and art supplies, I’m always on the lookout for ways to connect with my kids through reading and creating.
Introducing KidArtLit.
A subscription box delivered to your doorstep each month, allowing you to easily integrate art & storytime into your family’s routine.
