Learn Critical Thinking Skills Using Art
Think With Art Monthly Subscription Box
Think With Art is a monthly subscription box for Kids ages 4-12. Each month, you will receive a box filled with fun, quality art supplies, a new chapter in Mr. Toffee’s journey and a problem to solve using art.
Think With Art is a monthly educational subscription box that will teach while your child creates! I find that the best kind of learning involves hands on projects, and there is nothing more fun and hands on than creating fun pieces of art! Some of my friends use this service to help their kids create art, as we all know this is what kids love doing. Even if they make a mess or not, to them, it is all fun! As a parent, it is quite rewarding to see how creative your children can be. With this being said, some of them have an issue with knowing where to keep the work that their kids create. When we were discussing this, one friend mentioned that we should look into a site like https://www.classdojo.com/studentstories/, to see if creating a digital portfolio would be something work looking into. It doesn’t look too complicated, even for us parents who are not the best with technology. I guess this way, we can all share our children’s work and it will be there to view for a very long time. By using the services of the art subscription box to get your kids the supplies they need and then using the digital portfolio as a storage space for their work seems to work very well together. I will definitely do more research into this for sure.

I happen to love subscription boxes, and boxes designed for kids are one of my favourites, and I am always up for checking out new ones! We were lucky enough to receive an April Think With Art box to test and review.
In our Think With Art box, we received a lot of fun goodies!
- Meet Mr. Toffee booklet (with story, techniques and projects)
- A fun and colourful pencil
- A fun pencil sharpener
- Water Colour pencil crayons
- Water Colour paints with paint brush
- 2 paint brushes (including fan brush)
- 3 pieces of water paint paper
- Disposable table cloth
Because all 3 of the boys were interested (and there were plenty of supplies included), we split it up and they each used different techniques to create their art.
Fun Art Technique
This is the perfect accompaniment for home schooling or anyone who wants to add a little education into their child’s art work at home. Thomas really liked the critical thinking project (his answer: a hot air balloon) and Kristopher enjoyed using the water colour pencil crayons to create an Evil Giant Pikachu.
Kristopher and Hayden also took the opportunity to draw rainbows. Hayden used a combination of the water colour paints and the pencil crayons, and Kristopher used the water colour pencil crayons and used the fan brush and water afterwards
The projects and art-creating took the boys about an hour, but if you were using this for one child there is a good 3-4 hours worth of projects included (or more depending on your child’s age and how fast they create). The projects could easily be split up over the course of a week if using this as part of a homeschooling art class.
