The Orange Art Box

Looking for something to keep the kids busy this summer and end the “I’m bored”.

I was recently introduced to the Orange Art Box which is an Art Subscription Box for Kids.

As you might know…I love doing crafts with my grandsons

and because the box is geared for kids ages 5-12, it was right up our alley.

I was so impressed with the concept that I’ve agreed to do a monthly post with the boys for the

next few months using the products we receive in each month’s kit.

With Summer Vacation around the corner it’s a perfect activity to keep the boys busy.

What’s inside the Orange Art Box?

A collection of projects every month to inspire your artist.

Every Orange Art Box is designed with a feature project and multiple smaller projects

for hours of fun!

The boys and I did a short video of them opening their Orange Art Boxes.

It was seriously like opening a Christmas Gift.

You may notice in the video that they were just a little bit excited.

The theme for April was Mosaics…the April Orange Art Box included a wooden box, a large bag of mosaics, mod podge, brush, book mark, door knob hanger, tissue paper squares, 6 color scented pen and a folder of ideas, tips, patterns and instructions.

Enough projects to keep them busy for quite a while.

The boys all time favorite item was the six color “smelly” pen.   

The first thing they wanted to do was work on their boxes.   

It’s fun to see their creative minds at work.

I really think this will be a fun summer activity for the boys.

Sue and Nick’s Deflecto Craft Caddy Challenge

Deflecto Craft Caddy Challenge…

When I worked in the Deflecto Booth last January at the Creativation Show,

each day of the show Deflecto held a Craft Caddy Challenge.

The challenge was to see who could fill their craft caddy the fastest.

It quickly became extremely competitive.  (but fun!)

The challenge looked like so much fun, I decided to create one of my own.

Of course, I wanted to race someone closer to my own speed.

Nick enjoyed the caddy challenge so much that when my nieces came over to swim later,

he challenged them.  He was a lot faster by then.

Here’s a quick video I made last year showing all the features of the caddy.

 

The Deflecto Caddy Organizer* is made by Deflecto Craft Solutions are available at Amazon

and now in Target Stores.

Sue’s ADORNit Unboxing Video

You may remember last month when I mentioned that I’d been given the opportunity

to be a ADORNit Brand Ambassador.

I patiently waited for my Happy Mail to arrive.  They said it’d be worth the wait.

They weren’t kidding.

For the next three months…

I will be sharing with you a variety of fun projects using their products.

I thought it might be fun to show in a video you what was in side.

I’m not the best at making video’s and this one gave me quite a few unexpected challenges.

But being fully determined, I finally got it done.  (Thanks in to my son Justin.)

To see all that ADORNit has to offer make sure to visit them at www.adornit.com.

Sue and Nick’s First Video together on 3D Shimmerz from Paper House Productions

I asked my grandson, Nick to help me make a video.

If you’ve followed my blog any at all you’ve most likely seen a picture or two of my grandsons.

To be totally honest…some of my most popular posts are projects that I did with my grandson Nick.

So…when I decided to make a video showing how fun the new 3D Shimmerz from Paper House

Productions are I thought who better than Nick to help me.  He’s a natural and really did a great job.

He probably didn’t even need me.  Prepare yourself for extreme cuteness.

(oh…and please excuse the crickets in the background)

Nick asked me tonight when we’re going to make another video.  You just never know.
