KIDARTLIT FAMILIES SAY...

FANS 💛 OUR KIDS BOOKS & ART

KidArtLit takes stress out of the equation for me. I just don’t have the bandwidth to referee and plan creative activities for my older kids when I’m still figuring out how to navigate our newborn. When our boxes come, I know we’re all set and I have something to pull out together to read and make while the baby naps.

I know this might sound crazy...but even though I'm a teacher, I felt like what I had to offer my  daughters was getting really stale. I just had no ideas and Pinterest was overwhelming. I decided to try KidArtLit to expand my repertoire. We’re in LOVE with the books and projects and how engaging they are! Thank You!”

My kids wait at the door for our box to arrive every month. First it was magic and potions, next flying pigs. We cannot wait to see what book is in next month’s box! I'm a book-lover myself so seeing my kids get this excited about reading is what it's all about. KidArtLit is way more than another delivery in our house. It’s an anticipated part of our family time.

I never thought I could do arts and crafts with my son because before we introduced KidArtLit into our homeschool routine, any time we colored or painted it would end in tears. My son knows KidArtLit is for him and he loves  to create his own masterpieces. I love the books, and the open-ended activities have really helped my son feel more confident in his abilities. We look forward to our box every month.

I’m sorry, but I just can’t handle weird and useless crafts that my kids finish in two seconds and leave behind for me to clean up. When someone sent us KidArtLit as a gift, I was surprised by how excited my kids were about the projects...but also how much they've used them! My daughter couldn’t wait to show her dojo her new ‘magic key bracelet!’ Plus, I love that these crafts are connected to a book that adds depth. I'm now a fan of arts and crafts with my kids.
