Djeco's beautiful art-by-numbers kit, Khan Mosaics, creates two impressively-illustrated pictures any preteen would enjoy. By just following the numbers and adding the correctly colored foam sticker tile to the backgrounds he will assemble two imposing pictures; a grumpy gorilla and a thoughtful tiger.
The vibrant Khan Mosaics is a small, quiet, easy-to-pack activity to tuck into a purse for traveling, be it to the local homeschool meet-up or around the world. Lots of fun with virtually no mess, Khan Mosaics will keep your child engaged and entertained for hours. What a pleasant way to exercise and strengthen hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and concentration.
Age Recommendation: 8-14
CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
We were pleasantly surprised with this mosaic kit. Even though the kit only include two animals (gorilla and tiger), the designs take a decent amount of time to make. There aren't many colors, but within each color, there are different sizes of the triangles so it's deceptively difficult (in a good way). I think the age recommendation of 8-14 is appropriate. Younger kids might be capable of doing it, but probably not have the patience for it.
I got this mosaics set along with another Timberdoodle product, Pixels, to have my son compare the techniques/styles used. He is super interested in this form of art and I like that Timberdoodle had several things to further spark his interest and explore his creative options. This would probably be a good first option to try and then move up to the Pixels. I know this product says 3rd-8th, but I actually think you could use this with a younger crowd and save Pixels for the older kiddos. Just one mom's opinion.
