My daughter, like most little girls, loves jewelry. I often sit with her while she is making bracelets and necklaces using her beads. I was looking for something new to do with her. This Artterro Collage Jewelry Kit was the perfect activity! She was still able to make jewelry and I was able to introduce new crafting techniques like decoupage.

While some parents splurge on summer art classes and camps, activity books can inspire at a much lower price tag. LittleMissMatched’s The Artist in Me! costs under $12 at Amazon.
Eye Can Create Art…So Can You
I wasn’t bored much growing up. On rainy days and lazy Saturday afternoons, I’d be engaged in some craft project or interesting game. My mother, a teacher, has a gift for finding and organizing fun activities on a moment’s notice. Now that I’m a mom, I appreciate how easy she made it all look.
Some organized moms dedicate entire closets to craft supplies and keep file folders full of craft-ideas clipped from magazines and newspapers on-hand. But if that’s not your style, you can still entertain and educate your children with the fabulous art kits from Eye Can Art.
