I just knew I had to tell my readers about
as soon as I landed on their site.
Artterro is a small business founded by two moms
who aim to create eco-friendly, high-quality, open-ended art activities for kids and adults alike
and they are proud to be made in the USA
Luckily, they wanted me to tell you about them!
So, they sent us a
The girls couldn't wait to dive into the kit, look how inviting it is!
I LOVE that you can see everything that's included in the package.
There are handmade papers, 100% wool felt shapes, glass and wooden beads, sequins, crafting threads, needles, and copper wires.
Every single kit is unique.
For a few days, we'd get out the materials and go through them
just thinking of all the wonderful things we could create
Finally, we decided
Let's make a mobile!
I started by setting out all of the materials so the girls could clearly see what they had to work with
As I was pulling the threads apart I noticed the girls were adding similar colored items onto the threads
It was a great way to get A involved,
she really enjoyed sorting the materials by color.
Both of the girls enjoyed using the needle-nose pliers to bend loops in the wires
C loved sewing beads onto the felt shapes
the sewing was her favorite part
Even though the recommended age for the kit is 7+ my 2.5 and 4 year old were both able to help create in their own ways
C did everything but thread the needle and tie the knots
When we started making the mobile, we didn't take into account that in order for it to hang properly it needs to be balanced.
We really learned a lot about how to construct a mobile
(for future reference)
It's better to make and balance each section of the mobile separately,
then, attach them all together at the end
making minor balancing tweaks
Balancing your mobile allows you to create wonderful asymmetrical designs
To help with balancing we either added more beads to one side
strung the wire up with the thread a little off-centered
(you can see examples of that in the wires that have a lot of loops)
When all of the mobile sections were balanced separately
I attached all of the sections together
and hung our creation from the ceiling
The girls and I really enjoyed the Creativity Kit
we have enough material left over to create something else!
We were so thrilled to be able to review an Artterro kit
Overall, I was extremely pleased with the quality of the materials as well as the quantity
You get a lot of items in one kit, enough to easily make more than one project.
I can't wait to try more of their kits
After all the sewing she did I know C would really enjoy the
