Upon receiving my initial review of the KidArtLit Spark box I was contacted by a co-owner of the company. She has been wonderfully kind and made me feel my opinion mattered.
The company is now sending me a Deluxe box that I will review upon receiving.

Hi Megan, This is Julia Linsteadt, co-owner of KidArtLit. I’m sorry you are unhappy with the contents of your delivery and the overall experience of your Spark box. Our goal is for every subscriber to love her KidArtLit experience. I am disappointed that we have let you down. Our boxes are always packed with brand-new materials and books and the condition of the contents you received concerns me greatly. You should have received a brand new hardback book, an author note, and an art kit with the supplies to make two handheld mirrors (two packets of air-dry clay, two pieces of circular mirror paper, and a packet of embellishments), and an illustrated guide. Please look for an e-mail from me directly. I would like to...

As a homeschooling Mom & art educator, I can’t say enough good about KidArtLit! When you combine literature with hands on learning activities that help kids discover their own creative voice you connnect their learning to a real world experience & we all know when we DO we learn in a different way reinforcing what we’ve heard and read. KidArtLit boxes are a fantastic compliment to any homeschool style or curriculum choice!

We love that it that there’s a Ready-Set-Go pack because my boys love to dig in, but most importantly I love that it brings enough supplies for my boys to enjoy. The books are beautiful, and the box is full of quality items. Again, worth the investment.
