Sneak Peek

March 2021 Box

Our March box is a totally tactile clay shark head project! Kids will learn about sharks of all kinds from the book, Sharks by Seymour Simon and published by the Smithsonian. We love to help make scary creatures not so scary through art! The clay is an air dry PaperClay which we love because it's super soft and easy to work with. Our video tutorial shows one way to create a shark head and kids are encouraged to experiment and be creative with theirs.

Order by March 14th to get this box!

Questions

Q: what age is this for please?Asked by Erin W., December 2020

Outside The Box Creation answered...December 2020

Hi! Thanks for asking about our product. The boxes are designed for ages
roughly 6-11 (elementary school age). We have some customers as young as 4
and as old as 17 when there are multiple kids in a family. They are
designed for the parent to offer some assistance - depending on the child,
it may be just helping to set up the workspace and make sure the table is
covered etc, or it may require helping to read the instructions. We also
have video tutorials now. Lots of our parents enjoy actually doing the
projects with their kids!

Q: Is it possible to order a single box- such as the December Snowflake Bentley? Asked by Carmen C., December 2019

Outside The Box Creation answered...December 2019

Hi Carmen, Thanks for asking! Cratejoy Marketplace does not allow us to
sell any products that are not subscriptions. You can find individual boxes
on our website, which is outsidetheboxcreation. We can't add actual links
to these emails. If you get there and have questions, you can email us
through the website or call us.
Thanks,

Q: What are the adult boxes like!Asked by Robin B., August 2019

Outside The Box Creation answered...August 2019

Hi, thanks for asking! Our Art With Friends Boxes come with all of the
supplies for an art project for 2 people (you can actually probably stretch
it too if you're willing to share supplies,) cocktail napkins, food & wine
pairing ideas and a simple recipe that go with the theme. We have 4
projects currently: Italian Paper Marbling, Watercolor, Easy Retro Mono
Printing Project and a Zen Drawing Project. What specific questions can I
answer?
Thanks,
Beth

I was very impressed with the great customer service at Outside the Box Creations. They were very helpful with issues that arose with shipping. I would definitely recommend this company for its excellent service! I ordered this box for my elderly father with Alzheimer's. Very nice material inside - hope he enjoys it!
