sponsor give away: reCREATE Art Kits

Happy Monday! Hope you had a festive weekend. We're in the thick of making, frolicking and general merriment around here, and I wanted to pass on some of that magic to you this week. I'll be sharing some of our projects and offering a few give-aways to boot! The first up comes from our top sponsor: reCREATE! They will send one lucky reader two of their Art Kits. These art kits make me so happy... here's how they are described:
"We work with businesses to collect things they don't want, that we think have value in the creative process, and we use those materials to make our reCREATIONS.   These are not mass produced kits, but rather, one of a kind activites packaged up for your creative enjoyment.   Our kits are meant to help you explore a hands-on, tactile art experience, as a family."
   
Fantastic! Incorporating recycled goods into our crafting is a sustainable practice worth teaching early. It fosters ecological awareness and hones cleverness as we look at materials with a keen eye for their multiple uses. Doesn't that sound like the perfect gift to give our children?  ReCREATE will send two kits ready for making. Here's the selection the winner will get to choose from, and you can read more about them right here:

  1. What a fabulous idea! I feel a little less like a hoarder now... I keep little leftover crafty bits. I think I'll make some little stocking stuffer kits for my short people.
    (You know, while I wait for your awesome giveaway to end!)
