The little guy and I recently got a fun art box and we definitely had a blast exploring everything that was inside. I love mixed media and apparently he does too, which is kinda cool because it’s something that we can totally do together.

Sweet Art Society was kind enough to send us their October subscription box in exchange for sharing our experiences with it. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all little kids do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning creative activities for you and your little kids.
Here’s the thing. I’m the artsy type. I always have been and probably always will be. I love pretty paper and all of my art supplies are organized in rainbow order. I know, I know. Talk about going a bit overboard, right?
So when an awesome friend of mine asked if I’d be interested in checking out one of the new art subscription boxes from Sweet Art Society, I was all like yep! You don’t have to ask me twice.
Enter Da Vinci Watercolors! Somehow I’d never heard of them. You know, because since I had the little guy a few years ago and became a work-at-home, homeschooling mama, there hasn’t been quite as much time for my own projects. I mean, sure. I make stuff. Kid’s stuff. Lol…
But I wanted to do something just a little bit different with this particular box. I wanted to use it to make art with the little guy. And that’s exactly what we did. We spent a Friday morning creating together and had the time of our lives learning about watercolors.
Our box came with detailed instructions for using the supplies as well as few different project ideas. Since we were both unfamiliar with Da Vinci Watercolors, I took the time to read everything that came with our box before we got started, including a sweet letter from Nicole, who is the Artist and Leading Lady behind Sweet Art Society.
Art is healing. Art is uplifting. Art sets our soul free to be who we were supposed to be before the world jumped in and told us who we had to be.
I couldn’t agree more. That’s just one of the many reasons why I try to do something creative every day and of course I encourage the little guy to do the same.
He got to do the unboxing. And let me tell you, this kit came with literally everything we needed. I gave him a plastic tray and two small bowls of water. Other than that, the Da Vinci Watercolors, a watercolor brush pen, and several different types of paper were all included.
More often than not, I’m the one behind the camera, so there are precious few pictures of me, but I thought y’all might enjoy seeing some of the little guy’s process as he worked with Da Vinci Watercolors for the first time.
Seriously, y’all! If my four year can do this, then you totally can too! And he rocked it! I’m definitely one proud mama right now.
Sweet Art Society is like an art lesson in a box shipped right to our door. But it’s also so much more than that. It’s quality time with the little guy and making him feel extra special because he gets to use professional art supplies. And let’s not forget about creating and learning together.
We couldn’t be more in love! This is definitely something that I hope to do more of in the future. And I’m sure that, soon enough, baby girl will be joining us too!
Psst… If you haven’t already, you’re definitely going to want to come hang out with us in our 52 Weeks Facebook group. That’s where we’ll be chatting about the challenges and our creative spaces. And if you’re interested in a free weekly to-do list printable, here’s a link to the 52 Weeks Workflow Weekly To-Do List that I’ve been using.
