The theme was Italy! Each box has a guide to the month’s theme which contains fun facts and ideas, and serves as an intro to the actual activities. The booklet is a great intro to the theme.

The first project was to make a mosaic pizza trivet.

The box included a mold, plaster, apron, gloves, and tiles.

Plus some mixing supplies. Alas, the instructions said to put water into the bottom line, which I interpreted as the one at the bottom of the ridges. Our plaster was soupy.

We had fun placing the tiles and we do think it will eventually dry, but we’re not sure!

The box included heavy duty paper, charcoal vines and sumps, a blending tool, and a kneading eraser.

Along with a fun Italian flag to wave, a book on different Italian Architecture guided kids through drawing their own masterpieces!

It went step by step and even noted the level of difficulty!


My daughter had an amazing time with this – and we were shocked to discover that she is completely ambidextrous.

IMG_9648We’re not sure she really knew either – she did the entire piece with the charcoal in her left hand and the blending tool in the right (note, she’s 6, and her art would have looked like this with her left hand). So cute.

She really loved both projects this month!surprise ride october 2015 IMG_8999
