We signed up for Little Atelier boxes with Woodland Children last month. I thought it'd prompt some different art activities with the girls and be beautiful things to strew for these art-loving children. :) Woodland Children have such lovely things anyway, and we know we love lots of their ranges, so I trusted that the contents would be brilliant quality.
Box day came, and we were all very excited by the pretty parcel that arrived. I *love* getting exciting post (you know, not the boring-but-necessary things), especially when it's a surprise. :)
And here's what we got this month: close up photographs of plants, lovely big glass jars with paint powder, pallete for colour mixing, brushes, information on the artist we could take inspiration from, and even paper to paint on.
The suggested activity took over an hour even without the jar-shaking paint-mixing fun, and we have the painting gear and lots of paint left over to use for other projects. In fact there was plenty of everything for three children to get involved and enjoy the activity, and the materials could easily have gone around a larger group. So it was pretty good value, and an interesting afternoon. :)
