Get Crafty With This Fantastic Art Jar

I have been asked to do a review of this fantastic Art Jar from Galt Toys for  It costs £14.99 which might seem a little steep but it is fully packed with activities to keep your little ones busy. It  is aimed at children 4+. Poppy is only just three but already plays with toys like this and loves sitting at the table doing arts and crafts.

Poppy was very excited when the parcel arrived and even Rosie was intrigued:

We chose to open it while we had friends and their two little girls to stay. This meant we had more mini testers to help to review it. We did it one morning whilst it was raining and it kept them all busy until the sun came out so we could all go out to play! Despite being promised a day at the beach there was no moaning at all from any of them..they had great fun.

The jar really is jam packed, filled to the brim with an exciting selection of art & craft materials. It also includes handy idea sheets to help you out. It contains: 
70 pompoms, 40 wiggly eyes, zigzag scissors, sequin pack, shredded paper, 2m red fringed crepe paper, felt alphabet, 18 plastic buttons, 7 cotton reels, 50 pony beads, 20 small star beads, 10 pipe cleaners, 10 straws, 6 sheets self-adhesive foam shapes, 7 printed card templates, 10 sheets coloured paper, 25 gummed label strips, glitter & white glue, 2m wiggly trim and 3m elastic. Quite a selection I think you would agree!

 Here is a little video to let you see how we got on:

As you can see, it provided great fun for all and there is plenty left to keep us busy for any more rainy days. The only negative thing I would say, is that with so many activities a little more glue would be nice.  It really is a small tube and children tend to be a bit generous with it. Despite this we still give it a huge 9/10.

For the record I was provided with one of these art jars for reviewing purposes but all views, opinions and words are my own.
