Easter Gift Ideas -- Eye Can Art Kits (Review and #Giveaway)

I have been meaning to share my review of the popular Sketch Foam Printmaking kit from Eye Can Art.  Due to the girls and I being sick, I have been playing catch up with reviews, including this one.  But, I have to say that this art kit (which includes everything you need -- which I love), did come in handy a few weeks ago when we had a bad snow storm here in New England.  Whenever there is a delay or no school, I watch my niece and nephew.  So, I am always looking for fun things to do with them, to not only keep them entertained, but that are educational.  When I stumbled across Eye Can Art last month, I knew that their selection of award-winning art kits would be great for these types of occasions.  I reached out to the owners, who are experienced art educators, and was happy when they responded back with a review and giveaway opportunity.  They sent me their Sketch Foam Print kit, which contained the following:

I don't know about you, but when it comes with arts and crafts with the kids, the last thing I want to do is be running around trying to gather up last minute supplies, or need to run out to the local craft store for an item.  All the kits that Eye Can Art offers include everything you and your child will need for a fun afternoon of creating and having fun with art.

So, with the snow falling outside, I had my niece, who is 10 yrs. old and my 6 yr. old nephew, at the dining room table creating their own works of art, with the Sketch Foam Print kit.  Here is just a sampling of the masterpieces they made:

Even though Savannah is not old enough to do this art project, she did get in on the fun by offering up suggestions to her cousins on what to draw, and even dressed up a few of their art pieces with stickers. :-)  And, when it came time to be picked up, they couldn't wait to show their mom what they did for the day, and tell her how much fun they had.  My nephew ended up taking his creations to school the next day for show and tell, and had a blast telling the class about the Sketch Foam Print kit, and what it took to make his masterpieces.  

I knew that these kits would be well received by the kids, and really made them get creative, as they were given a blank canvas to work with, and had to come up with a design/picture to complete this art project.  I will definitely be buying more art kits from Eye Can Art, to have on hand for snow/rainy days, as well as to give as birthday and holiday gifts.  In addition to the Sketch-Foam Print kit, Eye Can Art also offers other award-winning kits, including a collage print making kit, sumi-e painting kit, wax drawing kit, amate cut paper kit, pastel stencil kit, book in a box kit, and a fabric sun photo kit.  And, with Easter right around the corner, the popular Sketch Foam Printing Kit and other art kits from Eye Can Art would make for great Easter basket gifts. :-)
