Friends Mixed Media Art Kits
Not all children love drawing, but all children are looking for creative outlets. Our exclusive Friends Mixed Media Art Kits will allow your children to dabble in four different mediums and create art with a sensory focus. From sand art to crushed glass mosaics, your child will love the variety and the stunning results each component produces.
Every Friends Mixed Media Art Kit includes Fish Rainbows, the classic paint-by-numbers sand art kit. Just peel, sprinkle, and enjoy. Fish Rainbows includes four pre-printed images of beautiful fish on glue-covered cards with ready-to-apply colored sand and glitter. All this plus a detailed, wordless instruction booklet comes housed in a lovely, sturdy gift box.
Your child will also receive a Batik painting project specially designed for children. Popular in Asian countries like Malaysia and Indonesia, these Batik painting kits come with a wax batik template, paintbrush, and a set of 6 organic paint dyes.
In addition, you'll get Hey Clay Birds. This ingenious fusion of spongy, stretchy modeling clay and the interactive animated app will teach your child how to make a flock of comical birds. The brightly colored modeling clay is not sticky, yet the sculpted parts hold together well and air-dry seamlessly. The Hey Clay Birds app will give your artist step-by-step directions on how to build the birds, from the selection of clay color to what type of shape to make, and where to place it. These detailed, self-paced tutorials are all your child will need to produce professional-looking models while encouraging fine-motor skills and spatial reasoning.
Crushed Glass Art kits combine fine-motor skills and a concentration on color value to result in a stunning piece of art. These kits contain crushed glass that is close in texture to beach glass, but with a bit of reflection and shine.
Made in the U.S., the glass is rescued before it hits the landfills and repurposed into this beautiful art! Everything you need to complete each project is included. The large Crushed Glass Art canvases measure 8 inches by 10 inches, and the smaller canvases are 5 inches by 7 inches.

I chose this because my 6 yr old doesn't like to do handwriting and I think its because she needs to build her fine motor skills. I'm hoping this will work for that. She also loves anything that has to do with arts and crafts. So its a win if it helps with fine motor skills, imagination, and art lessons. It also provides a topic of conversation about what she is making. Birds, fish, flowers, etc.
