Before I became a parent, I had a really small knowledge of DIY and crafts. I thought you need to be talented and have manual skills which I’ve never had. Now I know that kids have a brilliant imagination and everything that we are making doesn’t need to be perfect. Plus you have a lot of tools that help you to make amazing things. It’s really important for us to spending time with our son on crafting because he can learn a lot of things and it’s developing a special bond between us. We definitely prefer it rather than sitting and watch TV or let him play all day long on a tablet, phone or etc.
So, I was really pleased when I got the opportunity to review a goody bag from Printkick. As you can imagine our son was thrilled when he saw what was in the box. Crayons, markers and paint everything that kids love (parents not really :P). Mess all around but a happy baby and that is everything we care about.
But firstly couple words about Printkick
Printkick is a small family business and started up in 2001, though they have roots back to 1987 (They are in my age!! Coincidence? I don’t think so:P). What’s really interesting and worth to say, primarily they sell ceramics like printed mugs to small businesses around the UK. Now with a launch of their new website, they’ve expanded the range to include all sorts, such as the kids/arts and crafts products which I’m reviewing in this post 🙂
What I really love about Printkick is that they care about our environment. They launched a new eco-friendly products range, which they’re trying to grow to ensure that organisations are aware of their environmental impact and make better choices with their printed items. It’s so important nowadays, right? But that’s not everything. I also do not hesitate to review Printkick products because they care about other people especially those who need a little bit more attention. People from Printkick are involved in The Umbrella Project a campaign with ADHD Foundation for neurodiversity. If you want to know more click here.
Bundle of crafts and arts joy
The first item that our son wanted to try was a lovely blue backpack with 5 markers and I believe those markers were the real reason why he chose it as a first thing.
Anyway, it was a fun for us to colour the car and a unicorn (what a combo) on the backpack. It was the first time when we had a chance to design something for our son. Obviously, with his little help- he was choosing colours. Which was really funny because he wanted black stars but we were able to persuade him that yellow will be better.
Also, we’ve got an amazing painting set in a wooden box. It’s perfect for a gift!
Looks really nice. When my husband opened it to check what’s inside I saw something in my son’s eyes. It was a pure happiness. His very own paints, markers, crayons… We’ve decided that he will be using it only under adult supervision:P It will be safer for our house.
In our goody bag, we’ve got something for us. Lovely adult drawing book.
We (I) decided that it’s only for me and it should help me to relax and let the whole stress out. Good that there is a lot of pages to use.
I’m really happy with all those products. And I can’t wait to use a painting set with our son. I believe it will be a lot of (mess) happiness. Let me know which item you like the most. What do you think about crafts and arts with kids?
