Since starting my blog I’ve have been able to work with some amazing companies that were geared towards babies and toddlers. However, this year, I told myself that I would collaborate with companies that catered to older children. Why? Simply put, I want to include Jayden. It seems that a majority of businesses focus a lot on littles and not the bigger littles (like Jay). Jayden is at that age where he is transitioning out of that baby stage and is becoming more independent. He is not just “Abel’s older brother”. He is finding his identity. He is finding his voice.
When the opportunity arose to work with Little Abstract my ears perked up and my eye widened because Little Abstract was exactly what I was looking for. Something that Jayden and I could enjoy together. Something different. Something unique.
Before I go any further let me introduce Little Abstract. The Little Abstract art kit was designed by abstract artist Jeremy Brown. This art kit was designed to provide a fun and creative project for both kid and their parent to create a one-of-a-kind piece of abstract art. I was sent an art kit from Little Abstract in exchange for an honest review, please read my Disclaimer page for further information.
WHAT YOU GET
- Coloured Screen Print
- 2 wax pencils
- a list of twenty two question that the kids are instructed to answer via illustration or by writing it down
- Each response is placed in specific areas of the screen print using the key provided.
Jayden was super excited to try out his Little Abstract kit ! With Miguel and Abel out of the house our project began! We laid out the 24″ x 36″ screen print on the hardwood floor and started working our way through the 22 questions.The questions were fun and easy for Jayden. It even got to the point where he wanted to do it by himself! I insisted he include me [LOL!].
It took us about an hour to get through all the questions and answer. Surprisingly, I was able to learn a little more about Jayden. I’m not talking about what his favourite color is or who is best friend is. I’m referring to how he processed each question and how he executed his answer. He was very engaged and not once did I have to remind him to pay attention [which he usually has a problem with]
When we were finished, I held up the completed screen print for us to look at, we smiled at each other and laughed because this was the first time in a long awhile that we completed something together with no interruptions. It was Jayden and I making memories using Little Abstract’s art kit.
