Artzooka For Christmas

art, crafts

We love Artzooka craft sets from Wooky Entertainment!  From the cool, eco-friendly packaging to the inspirational and innovative craft ideas, they are brilliant sets that keep the kids happily entertained for hours!  We received two of their brilliant kits to try.

Sock-Ups Animal Plush


Create your own adorable plush animal-friend from a sock!

This kit contains:
• 3 socks
• 10 styrofoam balls
• clear elastic bands + 1 white rubber band
• 6 felt eye stickers
• polyester stuffing
• 1 Artzooka episode + instructions on DVD
• 1 instruction sheet with Artzooka challenge included

You can make three models: a caterpillar, a turtle and a koala each using a sock.  The animals each have a different difficulty level so you can learn skills and progress to make the trickier animals.  The step by step instruction sheet is all fully illustrated.  The enclosed DVD features an Artzooka episode  and includes visual instructions for the activity.  The technique can then be extended and inspire you to make your own creations from all your own old odd socks! It is a great way to do toy making that doesn't involve any fiddly sewing.   RRP £14.99

Sketcher Tape Set #1

Using different decorative adhesive tapes and stickers you can embellish pictures!

This set contains:
• 5 rolls of decorative tape and 160 stickers
• 6 backgrounds to decorate
• 1 instruction sheet with Artzooka challenge included

You can use the colourful patterned tapes to build up the background pictures, adding patterns and textures. Then you can add stickers to build up the picture further.  The backgrounds can be joined together to make a bigger scene.  You can extend the activity by customizing exercise books or diaries using the same technique.  RRP £9.99

Our Opinion: Artzooka sets will make excellent gifts for children and encourage them to be creative.  The challenges extend the activity and inspire crafty kids.  I love the cool, eco-friendly packaging with the reusable cardboard case.  There is a great selection of really nice, innovative craft kits to choose from.

  1. I can just see Kizzy's eyes lighting up at the thought of craftwork - she is so good at it and seems to be able to handle just about anything to do with "making things" so I imagine that craft sets and activities from Artzooka are perfect for her.xx
