With the National Geographic Mega Arts & Crafts Kit, kids can explore their creativity as they create dazzling mosaics, swirling marble paint designs, and air dry pottery pieces! It includes over 100 components to create 19 unique pieces of art!

The first activity in this craft kit is the art of mosaic-making. Everything is included to craft 3 mosaic art pieces: slow-dry plaster, glass tiles, mould’s, and stir stick. They’ll start by creating a mosaic design with the assorted glass tiles in the kit. They can use one of the included design templates, or let their artistic side shine with their own unique design! Mix the slow-dry plaster, add it to the mould, and place the tiles! It’s that easy!

Also included is everything needed to create mesmerising marbled paint pieces: 6 paints, 12 sheets of paper, thickening powder, tray, dropper, and styluses. In just 4 easy steps they’ll have beautiful, hand-made artwork they can display proudly! First, they’ll set up a workstation by mixing their marbling solution. After the solution has a chance to sit for 6 hours, it’s time to add paints and create! Paint droplets float like magic on the water’s surface, allowing kids to use the included tools to bend, shape, and combine colours in unlimited ways. Once they’ve created the perfect design, they’ll simply dip the paper sheet into the water to transfer the design to paper. When the paper has dried, kids will have beautiful artworks they can give as gifts or use for additional crafting activities. They can even frame their pieces and hang them on the walls at home!

With the Mega Arts & Craft Kit, kids will also learn the art of pottery making! The kit contains all the materials needed to make 3 clay ornaments and a ring dish: 1 lb. air-dry clay, parchment paper, stencils, 5 paint colours, paintbrush, and nylon cord for hanging their creations. The clay is easy for kids to work with, and the kid-friendly instructions guide them through every step. Once they’ve picked a design from the included stencils, kids can follow the simple instructions to create their piece. After drying overnight, their pottery is ready for painting with the 5 included colours and brush. It’s tons of hands-on fun!

This enormous craft set includes easy-to-follow instructions for each type of project, along with detailed Learning Guides full of fascinating facts about the three different types of art projects contained within!

What our testers said

“Wow! I want to make a keychain. Ohh or a bowl! Can we make both?” – Boy aged 9

“I want to make all of the crafts. Let’s get started!” – Girl aged 8

What our experts think

Our tester’s eyes lit up as they watched their creations come to life while making their very own custom works of art. From keychains to bowls, mosaics, and marbled paintings, this kit facilitated hours of repeat play as well as sustained focus for children in the targeted age group. Independent exploration was plentiful secondary to the inclusive “Instruction and User’s Guide” that were provided for each craft. Learning was fostered with the interesting facts regarding the history of each activity and the exposure to scientific concepts underpinning the success of each project.

This kit facilitates artistic exploration coupled with comparative and logical thinking skills. When all three crafts are completed, testers are able to sharpen their fine motor, visual spatial, and problem solving skills – all while tapping
into their creative side as well. The Mega Craft kit would be a wonderful addition for a family project, independent play, or a classroom STEAM lesson (if multiple kits were purchased).
