We had so much fun exploring this art kit from Canadian company Pip & Vix Art Kits for Kids and learning some new techniques! My daughter loves when we try out a new art project and learn about new techniques and artists and she had a ton of fun with this art kit and creating beautiful heart art. It was great to have all of the supplies and project ideas ready to go, sometimes it’s nice to have a break from planning art projects and getting everything ready. I enjoyed sitting down with my daughter and creating and exploring together.

Our heart themed creations
After opening up our box and taking everything out, my daughter was eager to try out the Plaster of Paris technique. So she created her Plaster of Paris heart and after glued it on a decorated wooden block and painted it. This was her favorite heart art that we did.

What I love about this box is that there is clear step by step instructions, but there is also lots of room to kids to come up with their own ideas and use their creativity in their own way.
We enjoyed looking at all of the gorgeous heart themed decorative paper that came in the kit and deciding what to use on our wooden blocks.
It was really fun experimenting with the foam texture sheets, something that was new to both of us. I can’t wait to do more projects using this technique!
I loved the multimedia approach this box had, there was paper to cut and glue, paint and texture to explore, 3d elements with the Plaster of Paris, and of course lots of sparkly gems that my daughter loved to finish off her blocks with.
We had so much fun creating and exploring with our heart theme box, my daughter absolutely loves the art projects that she did. And we both learned some awesome new techniques that I’m sure we will try again in the future!
