A few weeks ago, I was in Costco, and my mom and I were looking for gifts for my neice and nephew. We were strolling in the Christmas toy aisle, and I spotted the Giant Art Jar. Speaking as someone who regularly has pom poms, felt, popsicle sticks and pipe cleaners at home at any given time, I was amazed that this jar has everything you need to construct over 100 art projects with your little ones! It comes with a detailed instruction booklet, complete with color images for every craft that you can make, and EVERYTHING that you need to build these crafts.
My 6 year old niece and I created some crafts from this jar last week. I let her go through the booklet and pick the craft that she wanted. She made the popsicle stick butterfly and the bird nest scene on the paper plate. (Full disclosure: I didn't have the patience to take out every single thing from the jar to see if it included glue, so I used my own glue.) She was the perfect age and temperament for these activities. I don't think kiddos under 4 (unless they're really focused and have developed their fine motor skills) would be good for this, and it's probably going to entertain kiddos all the way up to 8 or 9. I would definitely recommend this for a rainy day activity or a sunny day activity when you've run out of ideas to do with your kiddos!
