Grasshopper, a lovely toy store in Portand, Oregon, and an online retail shop, is offering today's giveaway:
This beautiful "workshop" offers materials, ideas, and instructions for creating patterns and motifs for fashion. Artist Rebecca Dautremer has broken her work down into stages to explain how she produces her fashion designs and how others can as well.
Included in the kit are:
- Set of 9 felt brush pens
- 32 worksheets
- 2 stencils
- 16 sheets of ideas for patterns
- Instruction booklet
The age suggestion on this art kit is 9+, but I know a few 6 and 7 year olds who would probably LOVE exploring these materials. Heck, I know some adults who probably would, too.
You can see the giveaway entry details at the end of this post.
If you're interested in doing some shopping at Grasshopper (one of my blog sponsors), they have a pretty great selection for kiddos of all ages. Here are some of my faves: their picture books about music including one about the founders of rock and roll, some mix and match crazy animal magnets, a make-your-own snowglobe kit, 365 Penguins (a book that we've read and really like!), the gorgeous French knitting spool doll (ordering for Maia!), and the Fairytale spinner game (one of our favorite games!). Just fyi, orders need to be placed by the 12th to guarantee arrival by Christmas.
