When the lovely ladies from Artterro contacted me
to review one of their eco-friendly art kits, I couldn't wait.
Not only is their website beautiful, so is their packaging
AND... this company was started by two artsy,
creative mamas from Madison Wisconsin (Go Badgers!)
They started Artterro because they believe that everyone is born creative
and they wanted people to be able to create art with family and friends.
Hey, me too....sound familiar?!
They sent us their "Art Dolls Kit"
and their "Collage Jewelry Kit"
Artterro is committed to sustainability, they minimize packaging and print
all inserts on 100% post consumer waste paper using green printing methods
and energy offset by wind power. Their kits are assembled in the USA by
Goodwill Industries in Milwaukee, WI by people with disabilities
and those in need of job training skills.
They also sent us their "Art Journal Kit."
Even though the sets say ages 7 and up,
"C" (age 4.5) wanted to make the kits with us,
so I was her assistant while "E" worked independently at the table with us.
First, we all worked with the Collage Jewelry kit.
It comes with an assortment of wooden beads, pendants,
gloss glaze, a paint brush, and an assortment of pretty tissue papers.
The girls enjoyed this kit immensely.
They each made a pendant style necklace.
"E" (age 8) made this beautiful bracelet.
"C"s bead, pendant, and felt fairy friend from the doll making kit.
"C" drew the wings, legs, arms, and head for her fairy doll with the
beautiful handmade papers they included in the kit.
"E"s fairy doll in progress.
It was so nice for the girls to work with such nice art materials.

My family and I received three craft kits from the Artterro company for the purpose of this review.
