Hands-On Product Questions
I'm not confident in my art skills, but my children love art — will a Hands-On Kit 'n' Kaboodle™ work for us?
One of the benefits of a Hands-On Kit™ is the Hands-On Kaboodle™. Our kaboodles are full of information tailored to your children's different ages with lots of interactive fun to keep them engaged while they're learning. Each is written in a conversational manner, complete with guided instructions, and is ready for you to read to your children. We literally make it as simple as reading a bedtime story! In addition, the Hands-On Directions™ for each art project are straightforward and easy to understand. You may find that you enjoy art as much as your children with Hands-On Kits 'n' Kaboodles™!
My child loves art! Is your kit real art?
At Homespun and Hands-On® we feel that every child is a budding artist and you'll see that reflected in each of our Hands-On Kits 'n' Kaboodles™. We believe children deserve to work with artist quality materials on engaging art projects, and have developed our products always keeping this in mind.
I have 3 children, all different ages. Will your kits work for our family?
Our Hands-On Kits 'n' Kaboodles™ are designed to be friendly for children of all ages. The details and activities included in kaboodles are leveled according to information based on developmental ability, which is categorized by age. The kit contents are gathered with the whole family in mind! Parents tell us what they love most about the product is that it offers kaboodles in three different levels and allows for a little one-on-one time with each child before coming together for family fun doing a hands-on art project!
Are the contents within Hands-On Kits™ safe for children?
We have assembled the highest quality materials in each of our Hands-On Kits™. Our artist quality materials always conform to ASTM D-4236 and are safe for educational use.
How long does it take to complete a Hands-On Kit 'n' Kaboodle™?
The time it takes to complete a Hands-On Kit 'n' Kaboodle™ will vary depending upon the hands-on project and the artistic attention span of the child. Generally speaking, our Hands-On Kits 'n' Kaboodles™ provide at least several hours of fun, which easily can be broken into shorter sessions.
