Think with Art: Creative Projects and Critical Thinking Skills

 

Do you find it a challenge to work art time into your homeschool days? Or do you have the opposite problem — kids who only want to do creative projects and ignore all the other subjects? We seem to swing between those two extremes in our homeschool. My girls are very creative and love hands-on projects, but I don’t always have the time and mental bandwidth to create lessons around those projects. Think with Art can be a great way to work both art and critical thinking skills into your homeschool in a done-for-you kind of way. Win-win for moms and kids!

Think with Art subscription box encourages creativity and critical thinking skills.

Note: I received a free subscription box for the purpose of review. No other compensation was received and I was not required to give a positive review.

The skills your children will learn

With the Think with Art subscription box your child is learning more than art techniques. They are also learning critical thinking skills. I enjoyed watching my kids dive into the challenge in the story booklet and creatively solve the problem to continue the story.

Each month, new supplies

I love that the Think with Art subscription box includes new supplies every month. Each box comes with new art supplies, so your child can learn new techniques every month. I love that the activities fit a wide range of ages, so all my kids can benefit. The target age range is early readers/elementary, but younger kids can do the activities with some reading help.

Here’s how it works

You can think of Mr. Toffee (an adorable watercolor cat) as your guide. He goes on adventures and you can help him. There are some challenges included in the Think with Art subscription box and you get to help him along the way. As you do these boxes, you learn new art. Lessons come in the box with instructions on how to complete them. My kids were challenged as they did art work, but also had fun. My girls especially liked the watercolor pencils. They had fun making their drawings, then using the brush included to turn the pencil into watercolor.

One of the challenges in their kit was to create an unconventional method of transportation for Mr. Toffee. That means no ships, trains, or cars. They had to design their own idea and draw what they imagined. Fun creativity plus problem solving!

When you order, here is what you will get every month:

  • A new box filled with art supplies and techniques
  • A story booklet following Mr. Toffee’s journey home
  • A new problem to solve using art and critical thinking
  • All designed & curated by the founder of Colour With Me Art Studio (Designer and Principal)

My kids LOVE it

Think with Art is one of their favorite subscription boxes now. The prices are affordable and the art projects keep them busy thinking and creating for hours. Art is not always my strong skill, so I love that we can have this box sent right to our home.

Interested in ordering a box for yourself? Think with Art subscription box is only a click away. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

I'm a reader, writer, dreamer, wife, and homeschooling mom of 3 girls. We take a relaxed, eclectic, Charlotte Mason-leaning, Montessori-ish, literature-rich, delight-directed, almost unschooling-at-times approach to learning. Lots of unit studies, field trips, and lapbooks, too. I like to blog about our learning adventures (plus faith and encouragement) at Embracing Destiny.
