The printmaking kit absolutely engaged my daughter–and me–for an entire afternoon and beyond. It came with everything she needed to make her own “prints” out of posterboard, rollers and paint, and the directions are absolutely clear and even fun to read out loud.
Other kits help kids make their own encaustic wax drawings (shown), accordion book, and Japanese brush paintings. Clearly not your average lame craft kits; these are more like an introduction to serious art techniques.
You can completely tell that these kits are a product of art teachers who know just what kids need, both in terms of actual art supplies and “you can do it” encouragement. And you know? Sometimes we less crafty moms need it too. –Liz
