Everyday at my son's preschool the kiddos are given free time to do an activity of their choosing. Some times Quinn plays with the blocks, in the play kitchen and even with the trains. 80% of the time though he chooses to do some sort of craft! He likes to color, draw, paint, glue and everything in between!
My house is covered in my little artist work. Like most moms I like to encourage the things he has passion for, I like to enrich them. When I found International Arrivals I just knew it was the perfect shop for us.
They have all sorts of products to help with creativity in little ones.
I was sent several products for review, these are only a few of the many they offer.
