Eye can art — art project in a box

December 14, 2009

eye can art1It’s such a great thing to do art projects with kids.  They really enjoy it, and it’s so fantastic to see them explore their creative skills.  My 4-year-old is especially fond of craft projects, and she’s getting really good at them too!
Sometimes, though, I admit that my life is a bit too hectic to plan around complex art projects.  I always have the best intentions, but I just end up without the right materials, without a great idea, or simply without the time to plan the whole thing.  And this is exactly why Eye Can Art is SUCH a great idea!

Every Eye Can Art kit is completely developed by professional art teachers and provides everything you need for a fantastic and original art project (including scissors!).  There are currently four art projects in the range, and there’s enough material in every box to repeat the project multiple times.

I’m seriously impressed by these kits and am planning to never be without one again — they’re just so great to have around.  And, I also think they make fantastic gifts for birthdays… or for under the Christmas tree!
In the US, Eye Can Art kits are available through the website; for the rest of the world, you can use the Etsy site.
