This is a fun little kit to welcome the sun this first day of winter celebration!
Lots of warm colors in this box option 1, collage, drawing, dough and more. We aim to create to inspire the youngest child, the family, or even a grown-up to play and make.
We read books about winter, rituals of winter around the world, things that are round, baking/sun bread, and winter solstice.
For the child in your life, we’ve curated a small batch of another beautiful and bright art kit!
We have hand-brayered a soft yellow on the box of this kit, and as always we encourage you to reuse the box for art, and to also use all the packing and ribbon for projects, collage, doll dress up, sculpture of all types, and more!
What is in each Solstice art kit 1?
Each beautiful kit contains:
1 box of natural playdough (1 jar of YELLOW + 1 jar of orange to welcome the sun, non-gmo wheat flour, salt, cream of tartar, soy oil, organic rosemary oil, vitamin e oil, citric acid, potassium sorbate, FDA approved soy based organic + inorganic pigments
2 small wood balls (to draw on/collage or paint a sun + moon)
1 honeycomb make-your-own candle box (pure beeswax, 7 candles each)
1 wooden rolling pin for the dough (Maine made)
2 small sticks for dough (forest salvaged)
9 hand-cut paper stars + circles (repurposed bright fun paper, hole punched, to make sunshine collage garlands!)
1 stitch + sketch notebook with embroidery thread and plastic needle (to sew a fun design on! and then envision, design + draw in)
1 box of collage materials (tissue, yarns, paper, plus a calendula seed pod)
1 small cup of glue (elmers students glue non-toxic)
* all packed beautifully painted (to keep drawing on) in a ribbon wrapped box (post-consumer + recycled for you to enjoy and/or give as a gift)
ADD ON: Want to make the kit even more fun?
+ Add on: eco kids finger paint) $18.99
We love these new all-natural paints, that you just mix as needed with water! Noted as a finger paint, if you make it more watery we find it makes a great regular paint and/or watercolor. Food safe, non-GMO ingredients (including rice, potatoes and beans) and fruit and vegetable pigments add color.
+ Add on: rainbow sparkly watercolor (set of 12) $12
These are the sparkly, pearlescent watercolors everyone loves from our studio. You get 12 blendable watercolors, and children can mix them if they want in the lid. These watercolors also work great on darker papers, like recycled papers, even paper bags, and boards. We’ve found that these last a long time. We also use them to paint air dry clay and sticks!
+ Add on: paper: 2 options, 1 thick water color + 1 drawing + painting $8 – 13.50
