I recently received a Kelly Kit in the mail for review.  A Kelly Kit contains various creative supplies to encourage art play in children.  My Kelly Kit arrived in a small cardboard box, like this:

We all know how exciting it  can be for a child to receive something in the mail.  They haven’t had the pleasure of receiving bills yet!  ;)

I opened the box up, and laid out all of its contents.kellykit2 e1345937280601 Kelly Kits Review & 48 Hour FLASH Giveaway!!

My Kelly Kit included the following supplies for a “Sponge & Stamp” activity:

  • Dry paint mix
  • White paper
  • Purple paper
  • Blue paper
  • Pencil
  • Craft stick
  • Scissors
  • Paint container
  • Sponge paper

I followed the easy to read instructions that were included in my Kelly Kit.  The first step was to draw a shape on the sponge paper.  I drew a heart.

I then cut my heart out from the paper with the provided scissors, and quickly ran it under water.  I was absolutely surprised to see how quickly this paper blew up into a sponge while under the water.  I have never used this product before, and didn’t quite know what to expect.  I think kids would be really amazed by this stuff.  I know I was!

Next, I put half of the dry paint mix into the paint container, added a bit of warm water to it, and mixed it up with the craft stick.  I don’t think my water was quite warm enough, as it turned out just a bit lumpy.

Then, I poured a bit of the paint out onto a paper plate, and dipped my heart shaped sponge in it.

I stamped my paper with the heart.

The first heart came out pretty well, but I found that the paint needed to be reapplied quite often, unless you’re really going for that “sponge painted look”.

Next, I tried it on the purple and blue paper.  I was skeptical that the yellow paint would show up well on this dark paper, but I was surprised that it actually showed up very nicely.

Overall, I like the idea of the Kelly Kit.  I think it is a great way for kids to express their creativity, and learn about art at the same time.  I wish there had been a few more paint colors included in this kit, to kind of mix it up a bit though.
