Kelly Kits Review
My daughter & I enjoy craft projects together it is always nice to sit down and build something or create something new for us to keep. I recently found out about a website called Kelly Kits who offers a monthly kit subscription of Craft projects/Craft materials. Kelly Kits encourage art play using a wide variety of creative tools & materials beyond what coloring books can offer. The Original Kelly Kit comes complete with one set of five unique activities that cover the five art disciplines: painting, drawing, sculpting, printmaking, & collage. Each kit contains all of the tools & materials needed for the activities, the user just needs access to a kitchen! To increase functionality for homeschooling parents, each activity includes an instruction card with an enrichment idea to adapt the art activity to a school lesson. Kelly Kits are designed to encourage creativity & teach!
I was recently sent a small Kelly Kit for a product review which contained the materials to make green playdoh, The instructions were simple you needed a container to put the powder into & needed to heat up 1 cup of water on the stove. Once the water is heated you needed to pour the water into the powder slowly while you stir until it gets a playdoh consistency & let it sit out for a little bit until the playdoh cools down. Photos of the before & after can be seen above, The kit was a very simple process to throw together since my daughter is only three and can't use the stove or handle burning hot water I let her pour the water into the pan before we boiled it & let her stir the power/water mixture with a spoon. The playdoh had the same texture as store bought playdoh and was easier to clean up,We enjoyed making this & playing with it. I think Kelly kits are a wonderful idea for kids and a great way to spend family time together each month is a surprise of what you will be receiving. The subscriptions costs $9.99 a month and it is delivered right to your door. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
