Very well thought out activity and very inspirational
Great box and so nice to get something for siblings to do together
A fantastic box and super that the children could do together independently. Thank you!
Beautifully presented and put together - with plenty of materials and ideas. My granddaughters were thrilled.
I've bought this as a Christmas present and can't wait for them to use this gorgeous art box
Purchased for my 4 and 7 year olds as the younger in particular is very into art and adores her book about Yayoi Kusama.
This is a really lovely book. Just enough biographic info to make a great introduction, along with photos of some of each artist’s work. Important life events aren’t sugar-coated or sanitised, but are handled in a manner appropriate for children. We read an artist a night, as each chapter is about the right length. Very nice illustrations too.
As a result of this book my daughter now adores Kenojuak Ashevak. It was amazing to watch her discover art that speaks to her. (Kenojuak’s picture gets an excited equal and a kiss every time we pass it!)
Also very happy to support make+wonder with this purchase as it’s a fabulous shop and resource for inspiration!
Bought as gifts but wanted to keep - very well received gifts
My son loved it!
I bought this box as a little something fun to do together with my 2 girls before they go back to school - they love crafts - and this box gave us hours of fun. I was really impressed by the products included as well as all the info/how- to suggestions and the positivity in the wording was fab& really helped my girls to just have fun & enjoy it x
My niece is absolutely thrilled with her art gift box! It’s nicely presented, with many activities included & great quality materials.
My 9 year old daughter is thrilled with her box. We learnt about Frida Kahlo as an artist and had lots of fun creating head bands, collages and glyphs! She is looking forward to creating her self-portrait and using her sketch book. The materials are beautiful and the perfect quantity. Thank you for inspiring my daughter and I! Can’t wait to order our next box!! X
It was really good, fun and I could have gone for ages. I loved the bubble wrap and making my own stamps. From Abigail aged 8.
So good to have a box that isn’t ‘conveyor belt’ crafts and gives the child an opportunity to express their creativity
This was such a fantastic kit! One box and so much to do. I managed to get my children to share between them. There was more than enough. We’ve only managed two activities which kept them entertained for at least 2 hours!
The remainder of the activities will be over the next week or so. Looking forward to ordering the Georgia O’keefe box!
I highly recommend this box!!!
lovely product, very open ended activities that ignite curiosity and creativity!

How will the activities encourage my child to create?
Each box is focused on the process of exploring and creating art rather than the finished product, so children will not get frustrated trying to reproduce an adults design. Activities have been created by Qualified Primary School Teachers and are influenced by Reggio Emilia, Montessori, Loose Parts Play and process oriented art. Our boxes support the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage in the UK.
Are your boxes just for girls?
No! We designed Make + Wonder with girls and boys in mind. We feel like it is important for all kids to learn from the lives and experiences of creative women.
Why doesn't Make + Wonder feature men?
We believe that all art is important , but what inspired us to start Make + Wonder was the lack of strong female artists and their stories. We want Make + Wonder to be the place to share the stories and art of creative women.
Do you make boxes for groups of children?
Yes we can make art boxes for groups of children to use. These are perfect for playdates or parties. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a price.

Being curious fuels your imagination and is central to learning new things. If you are curious you are motivated to learn. Process art activities encourage children to explore and tinker which promotes curiosity. Activities are designed to appeal to children with different learning styles and schemas, so everyone will want to explore. We carefully select unusual and unique curated art materials to spark your children’s imagination and encourage a frenzy of exploration.
2. Growth Mindset
Children with a growth mindset as opposed to a fixed mindset are more likely to persevere and try new things. The activities encourage children to celebrate mistakes and persevere. The stories of inspirational role models share the story of their journey and efforts, the mistakes made and learning that led to them where they are now. This helps children to understand that intelligence isn’t fixed and empowers them to be strong.
Process art activities help children to relax and be in the moment ( mindful) When children are deeply engaged in activities it supports them to focus on the playing and exploring, so their breathing naturally relaxes.
When children are given open-ended resources in an invitation to play, it supports their confidence. They become more involved in the exploring process as they set their own goals, solve problems and celebrate mistakes. The prompts in our activity cards support adults to gently guide children.
Our activity cards, come with questions to extend children’s talk Ideas or thoughtful questions to encourage children to talk about their process and how they solve problems.
6. Learning through play
Our art ideas encourage children to play with carefully selected resources that naturally teach children about all areas of the curriculum. Open-ended play promotes problem-solving skills. Children will learn mathematical language and solve number problems. Learn about the natural world, properties of materials and changes that happen. Art techniques, exploring colour and mixing media. Learn the stories of inspirational artists and much more.
