New Kits in Store


At Artful Kids we spend lots of time sourcing new and unusual creative and art-themed gifts to add to the store, with a focus on quality and imaginative design. So when we spotted these kits, we knew they’d fit right in. Inspiring children to create by introducing them to some of the great masters of […]

New Website Coming Soon!

You may (or may not) have noticed that it has been very quiet around here since Christmas. This is because things have been extremely busy behind the scenes preparing for the launch of a brand new Artful Kids website. As we’ve grown and expanded, our existing site was showing its age and needed a complete […]

Where Art meets Science

There is often a tendency to treat Art and Science as two completely unrelated subjects at opposite ends of the educational spectrum but it has always seemed to me that this is an incredibly blinkered approach. Many artists throughout history have been fascinated by the latest scientific discoveries and theories, and have experimented with different […]

Spring Arrivals in Store

It’s been a long time since I last offered a post about some of the new arrivals in store, so I thought it was about time I shared a few of our favourite new arrivals. There is never enough space to mention everything, but a few selected highlights are always worth sharing. I’m always on […]

Getting to Grips with Google+

This week I have decided to make a determined effort to get started on Google+. It’s something completely overdue, and that I’ve been meaning to do for a long, long time. Someone once described Google+ to me as rather like a gym, where everyone’s a member, but nobody goes, and this was certainly true for […]

New Additions…

It occurred to me recently that I have been a little bit remiss in introducing some of the new products we’ve been busily adding to the Artful Kids store, so thought I’d introduce an occasional slot for some of my favourite new additions. I thought I’d start by sharing with you this colourful sliding Puzzle […]

Discovering Gorgeous Kid’s Boutiques

There are some fantastic small kid’s boutiques out there, selling unusual, good quality children’s items, and the internet is an especially good place to find them. However lots of small boutiques, unlike some of the larger stores out there do not have huge advertising budgets, so finding them amongst the myriad internet sites of mixed […]

For One Week Only

Spring is in the air, or at least it’s supposed to be! So it seemed like a good idea to kickstart the season with  a promotional discount. We’ve not had one since we launched the new website last autumn, so I thought I’d offer Artful Adventure readers a belated Easter gift in the form of […]

First Kit!

Much as I love searching out and presenting fabulous creative items for Artful Kids (must be the museum curator in me) there’s nothing quite as satisfying as designing and creating products of my own. Of course it’s a  time-consuming activity, especially trying to do it alongside all the myriad other tasks that are so essential […]

New Hand-Painted Fairy Canvases

It can be difficult to find unique wall-art for children, and I am a great believer in offering children something more than the stock range of licensed characters that are the usual fare aimed at kids. Because of this we’re keen to develop  the currently somewhat limited range of wall-art for children available on Artful […]
