Book Making for Kids – Eye Can Art Review

picture of Eye Can Art Book in a Box Kit

My son had a rough start to first grade this year with reading. He wasn’t interested. After hard work on his part and fabulous teachers, he has caught up with the rest of his class and is finally enjoying reading.

One suggestion that his teacher made was for Elijah to write his own book. Book making for kids is an activity that reinforces creativity, storytelling, as well as writing and reading practice. Eye Can Art makes fun book making supplies that turns a kids book making project into a fun activity with a book they can be proud of and keep. They also offer additional crafts and arts kits for kids including Collage print making kit, Sumi-e Ink Japanese style painting kit, Layered wax drawing kit, Pastel stencil kit, and Amate cut paper kit.

What the Eye Can Art Kit looks like inside. All of your book making supplies are neatly kept in the tin. This is great for keeping all the supplies together in one container between working on projects.  It is no fun wasting time hunting for your art supplies when you and your child finally sit down to work on an art or craft project.

Sometimes I get writers block, I always have. As a kid, I remember enjoying writing stories and little books. I can’t wait to work on this project with my kids. Kids usually are full of ideas that they are eager to express. Writing a book is the perfect tool for kids to express themselves. If they do get stuck on what to write about, there is an Idea Page included in the kit with great story book ideas. Even if you don’t go with one of the ideas, reading through it will spur on other ideas.

If you are looking for a fun, educational activity for your kids while they are home on Christmas break, the Eye Can Art Book in a Box Kit would be perfect. It is great anytime of year, but especially in the winter when we are all searching for fun things to do with our kids while it is cold outside.
