New Home

So Artful Kids has now moved to sunny Scotland. Of course as with any move, this has involved a huge amount of work and stress, and it seems like a long time since this blog was last updated, but hopefully now things will start to settle down a little, and it will be possible to […]

New Charity Partnership

Here at Artful Kids, we firmly believe that art and creativity should be a part of every child’s life. To this end, I am pleased to announce that we have teamed up with The Young Gallery in Scotland, to support their work in the east end of Glasgow, offering children under 12 from some of […]

New Colourful Gallery Wall

We’re currently planning some decorating at home, so I’ve been busy getting samples of paint and trying them on the walls. Looking in the garage I find I have dozens of these sample pots since I never throw them away afterwards if there is still paint in them – after all they can be useful […]

New Expanded Children’s Wall Art Department

One of my main goals during 2014 was to expand the Children’s Wall Art section of the Artful Kids store. So much of the artwork generally made available for children is somewhat uninspiring, so I wanted to put together a collection of artwork that offered something a little different. I started that process in 2014, […]

At Artful Kids we actively seek out […]

Annual Round-Up 2014

Yes it’s that time of year again – it comes round so quickly. I can’t believe that Artful Adventures is now 5 years old! Things have changed a great deal here over the last 5 years. Artful Adventures was launched originally as the business blog for Artful Kids, and while it has remained that, it […]

The Art Wall Evolves….

After a long, I might say unplanned break, I’m finally back and blogging again. I think that’s the longest break I’ve ever had, though I suspect more might be on their way as Christmas approaches. There has of course been lots happening behind the scenes, and hopefully I’ll have time to share some of the […]

Creative Activities with the Kaleidograph


One of the newest additions to Artful Kids is the Kaleidograph. For those of you who haven’t come across this before, the Kaleidograph is a pattern making toy which is very simple in it’s concept but lots of fun to use. We always like to road test new products here where we can, and I […]

Here Comes Summer

Well I hope so anyway. As the weather has started to improve thoughts go to creative activities suitable for outdoors. Summer is the perfect time for so many creative activities with or without children. Messy activities can be taken outdoors where damage can’t be caused, there are pavements and patios to draw on, land-art to […]
