Review: KidArtLit Subscription Box

Thanks for your support.

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.
I’m often intrigued by new art processes but am too hesitant to try them or just don’t have the right supplies.
Often I get to the end of the day with such brain drain that bedtime stories are a drag, not a joy.

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.

Somebody recently asked me what motivated me to start the Oh Creative Lady series. I replied that it’s mainly because I’m nosy. I love getting an insight into the lives of others. I especially love seeing how ladies balance their creative callings with motherhood. It’s always interesting to see how these mummas then infuse creativity into the lives of their littles. Viv from @papercutmum embarked on the coolest project with her boys. I loved finding out that when she’s not cutting bits of paper with her boys, she works…. well, I’ll let her do the talking.

repurpose kids art Painting is a favourite activity here for my littles.
As a result, there is one word to describe the rate at which the painted masterpieces pile up.
