We are a creative family, so we often embellish a little with what we have on hand, but I am always amazed when I open a box at the details of what is included; if we need a popsicle stick to stir or a shallow dish, it is in there!

The books are wonderful and reflect the diversity of the world we live in. We see children who look both like and different from ours. We see families that are like and different from ours. I especially loved the book from Australia where there are little touches (like the globe on a child's dresser with Australia centered instead of Europe or the Americas) that reflect different cultures and perspectives. This one is also special to us because it includes different family generations and a child with two women tucking him in, just like our child experiences.

We love the projects and have repeated and expanded on many of them. The biggest issue we have is that my kiddo has so many ongoing projects, that it is sometimes a challenge to "finish" something enough to start something new. But we always do the spark kit right away and stash the deluxe art kit for a day we need something to keep us busy.

Can I say again that we LOVE the books??!? We adore them. They are lovely pieces of literature that we don't own even though I have been a child educator for 20+ years. All of them are keepers that I...

I subscribed to a couple of these art boxes for a few months and then asked my kids what their favorite was. It was unanimous for this box.

The books (one book for each box) have been amazing treasures that I wouldn't have normally chosen for us. The activities leave a bit to be desired. It's frustrating to need extra supplies to complete projects and not know it ahead of time. This last box, we were supposed to provide all materials to "sew a winter scene"--that definitely would have required a trip to the craft store for me. We really enjoy the premise of the box, but the execution is a little bit lacking for us.

Thank you for the wonderful feedback! We're so thrilled that you love your family's books. It sounds like we have missed the mark on your art supplies. You might prefer a Deluxe box with two art projects instead of a Spark box with one project. We're reaching out to you privately to make this right. Thank you, again, for sharing your experience. We love having you as a member!

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!

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...
