The first kit I want to highlight is the Djeco Glitter Animals. We've been studying India and the Far East so this went along perfectly. This kit is recommended for children from 6 to 12. My 3rd graders really enjoyed it and were able to do everything themselves. The kit included 4 different animals on durable cardboard. What's really cool is that no glue is involved. You pull off paper to reveal stickiness underneath, pour on the color of glitter you want, dump off the extra, and repeat until you have a beautiful piece of glittery Eastern-style art. It provided my daughters with an hour of art. If this set is only meant for one child, it would provide hours of art class.
The Djeco Glitter Art kit we reviewed sells for 19.99 on Timberdoodle. Plus, you earn 20 doodle dollars with the purchase, which equals $1.00 off a future purchase. The Doodle Dollars incentive is pretty awesome, and makes everything you buy at Timberdoodle more affordable.
Djeco won Best Art Supplies of the Year, and it's easy to see why! These art kits are incredible! After reading about them, I was expecting our first one (Djeco Nathalies Oil Pastel Workshop) to be great but it actually exceeded our expectations. Today my youngest daughter, who is only 7, made an absolute pastel masterpiece.
Learn From One of France’s Greatest Pastel Artists
The Djeco art kits are award winners. They're made in Paris, France, actually, and they're a family owned company. The Djeco kits come in a variety of mediums (oil pastels, paints, glitter art, and more) and are geared toward a wide variety of ages. While our kit was for older children, there are also kits for preschoolers and younger children.
The next Djeco art kit we'll be ordering from Timberdoodle is the Abstract Art Workshop. I'm so excited to teach my children about another aspect of art appreciation! They learn so much more by actually doing the art they're learning about.
