Want a free art kit delivered straight to your door? Sounds almost too good to be true, but alas, it isn’t. It’s a real thing! Using the $100 Creative Kids Voucher provided to residents of NSW, families can get creative and have a little arty fun.
What is a Creative Kids Voucher? It’s an initiative by the NSW Government to help kids get creative. Parents, guardians and carers can apply for a voucher with a value of up to $100 per calendar year for each student aged 4.5 to 18 years old who are currently enrolled in school.
The voucher may be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and tuition costs for creative arts, speech, drama, dance, digital design, coding, and music lessons and activities. And if you want to craft at home, you can simply buy an art kit from any registered provider and have it delivered straight to your home.
Ready to get crafty? We’ve gathered our favourite places to start shopping with your Creative Kids Voucher, and inspire your little artist!
1. ARTZEE KIDS
Got a creative kid, and want to entertain them? Artzee Kids has created a bunch of packages to suit all kinds of crafty kids; from watercolour, to rock painting, and even tie dye.
2. CRAFT NATION
Travel the world from your own home! Craft Nation has created activity packs that will give your kids a taste of countries like Japan, Russia, Norway, Indonesia and Italy. The kids are only $25 each so you can grab four with your voucher, and that includes shipping.
3. CHARLIE BOOTS
Charlie Boots put the fun into creativity. There are so many ideas here to keep the kids busy. We’re loving the Acrylic Pour art kits, but there’s also beading kits (if paint is too messy) and kits for getting your kids started with calligraphy.
4. WICK’D CANDLES
Here’s one for the more advanced creative kids. Wick’d Candles has a created a very popular advanced kit for your children over 10 to get busy with. They also have kits for younger kids too. We love that we can have art, and a beautiful smelling home too. Win, win!
5. LIFE OF COLOUR
We’re obsessed with how bright and colourful everything Life Of Colour creates in their Creative Kids packages. This story stones and hanging mobile is a beautiful way to spend a crafternoon (see what we did there!). There are so many fun kit ideas, and once your kids are done, you’ll still have the paint pens to do art and craft another day.
6. CRAFT KIDS
Craft Kids have created a whole host of kits, including the Rainbow Craft Craft Box which creates a fun and interactive way for children to learn. Children will receive a variety of craft activities all delivered in the one box.
7. CREATIVE KIDS WONDERLAND
We love that not only does this beautiful company, Creative Kids Wonderland, create generous kids for your creative kids, they also have online tutorials so they walk them through what to do with their goodies. Nailed it!
