New Children’s Art Display Products in Store

With Christmas and New Year now well and truly over, and pretty much everything back in stock again in the Artful Kids store, I’ve been turning my attention to adding some new products. Choosing what to get can be difficult – there is so much choice out there, so many fantastic products. However I’m always […]

Christmas Greetings

Christmas Drawing Detail

Well I was hoping to have got another seasonal creative project on here before Christmas arrived, but it’s crept up without my even noticing. Last year we shut up shop early to concentrate on preparing for our own Christmas, but this time we stayed open, and I think everyone left their Christmas shopping to the […]

12 Creative Stocking Fillers


It can be difficult sometimes to find creative stocking fillers that are original and a little different, so I thought it might be helpful to offer a few suggestions. Of course all are available from Artful Kids, and we also post internationally (with the exception of a few countries). Free delivery is available in the […]

4th Birthday Round-up of Creative Projects

Anniversary Round-up

I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since Artful Adventures first began. In that relatively short time there have been lots of changes both to Artful Adventures itself, but also to Artful Kids and to our family life. The last 12 months have seen me posting less frequently – more owing to lack of opportunity […]

Creative Cards for Christmas


Is it too soon to be talking about Christmas?? I’ve been trying to get organised and start preparing things in a quiet way, so that I don’t end up with having to do everything at once in December. One of the things I’ve been trying to do is get our Christmas cards organised this year. […]

Children’s Artwork Mobile

Featured Artwork Mobile

This project offers an alternative three-dimensional way to display children’s artwork. It’s a simple concept with multiple potential variations so you can make it as basic or as complicated as you like. I love it’s kinetic qualities, but unfortunately this made it astonishingly difficult to photograph properly, so all I can say is that the […]

New Arrivals

New Arrivals

The last few weeks have been incredibly busy with having the kids at home for the holidays while trying to run both a home and a business. For me, this time of year is all about trying to prepare as much as possible for Christmas – making sure everything is well-stocked, adding new lines, organising […]

Mixed Media Experiments


It seems to me like the more creative projects I get myself involved in, the more I want to do – my mind seems to be in a state of creative overdrive at the moment so that I have at least half a dozen projects on the go.  Of course I don’t really have time […]

Children’s Art Gallery Walls – Old & New

Old and New

This week I thought I’d share with you our new Children’s Art Gallery Wall. This is to replace our previous Chalkboard Art Gallery, which we are now using more for creative drawing, messages etc. The new display uses 3 Hanging Wire Picture Holders, which are of course a variation of the traditional ‘washing line’ display, […]

Birthday Art

DC Abstract

I thought I’d  share with you all the gift I recently received for my latest ‘landmark’ birthday, because I’m so pleased with it. Landmark birthdays of this kind can be slightly depressing, but my husband knew that I had for some time been coveting a piece of artwork by an up and coming local artist […]
