This month’s project is a printed canvas bin! The skill focus this month is block printing. Such a fun and cool art form! This is the booklet that came in our box this month. I did this project with my eight-year-old son. He’s a little young for this subscription, but he has a real propensity (and interest) for the visual arts. He tends to need a little help, but he usually does pretty well!
Here’s a peek inside the booklet at the instructions. The instructions were clear and well illustrated, so they were easy for my son to follow. The booklet also always contains good tips and suggestions for practicing.
These are all the supplies that were included for this month’s project. Everything we needed was included.
This is my son’s completed bin! I love it! He made the design and crafted the block all by himself, and I think it’s a brilliant design (although of course I am biased). I had to help him a little with the construction of the actual bin, but not much. The main thing that bothered me is that the cardboard sides of the bin don’t fit perfectly into the canvas as you can kind of see. It’s not a big deal, though; it’s still a perfectly serviceable bin.
Verdict: Doodle Crate is awesome! My son’s project turned out great, and I didn’t have to help him too much. I still can’t believe what Doodle Crate can provide for $20. When you consider the materials, the curation, the project selection and instructions, that’s really a bargain! Most importantly, it always sets the stage for some fun times crafting with my kids.
