An Artist Kit

I love making things for people but making fun things for little people is even more special. We were at our friends’ girls birthday party yesterday and I wanted to give them something creative and productive. So I came up with an idea of an artist kit. Awhile back, I found these great wooden boxes at a local crafts store and I loved them so much that I bought a few. I decided to use those boxes and stuff them with all sorts of art supplies like oil pastels, paint, glitter paint, brushes and a wooden number 3 as it was their 3rd birthday. I then personalized each box with the first letter of their name. ‘O’ for Orla and ‘L’ for Lucy. I know little kids appreciate anything that is made especially for them – and after all, turning 3 is quite special!

I used bakers twine to bundle a little canvas with each box and then sewed a wooden button around the middle of the twine to finish it off. Happy 3rd birthday Lucy & Orla. We can’t wait too see your masterpiece!
