While our children are young, we teach them. Some lessons, like first words, seem rather simple. Others, like potty training, are more difficult. Some are less obvious but are still very important. Things like giving, being kind, and helping others. We, of course, teach them through our own actions and through encouragement. Giving Artfully Kids makes these lessons teach kindness through the power of craft.

**Disclaimer: I received a trial subscription for free from Giving Artfully Kids in exchange for an honest review. All opinions, however, are mine and uninfluenced.**

Giving Artfully Kids has a program for everyone.  From the parent to the teacher, their programs are designed and developed with everyone in mind. They can be done one on one with a child or through a group.  The projects can be done by everyone, regardless of skill and age. Plus, they do all the hard work for you. The planning and the research. They provide high-quality lesson plans to help empower and teach our children to make a difference in the world; all while being both fun and creative.

Giving Artfully Kids offers two different packages so there is a package for everyone.

The Basic Membership

The basic membership is designed for anyone who only wants to complete one project a month. Each week a new portion of the lesson is released so it is manageable and not at all overwhelming.

  • Each month, you will receive:
    • Week 1: One crafting-based service learning project for children ages 3-12
    • Week 2: Pillar of Giving Activity
    • Week 3: Article of Video to encourage and engage kids in kindness and giving activities

The Premium Membership

The premium membership, unlike the basic, is perfect for schools, after-school programs, churches or even a family.

  • Month 1 you will receive 8 crafting-based service learning project
  • Every subsequent month, 2 new projects will be released

Both

Regardless of which package you feel works best for you get

  • Instructions for crafting based projects (video instructions for more difficult crafts)
  • Downloadable links for a crafting-based service learning project
  • PDF Downloads and Worksheets to help organize you Giving Artfully Kids programs
  • Giving Artfully Kids Support for questions
  • Age group specific lessons
  • Monthly or yearly subscriptions available.

During our trial, we tried the premium, and we did a variety of activities.  – I am a bad blog mom and I didn’t take any photos. – My kids loved knowing that their crafts were going to help someone or something and both favoured making things for the local animal shelter.

In today’s day of subscription box services, where you get a ton of knick-knack items, this is an incredible alternative. The subscription is all online, and while you have to purchase the supplies needed separately, you only get what you need. Most items can be found at your local dollar store. We completed multiple projects and never spent more than $5 CAD on any, occasionally doing more than one within the same price point.
Whether you are a teacher, a mom, or anything in between, Giving Artfully Kids has a package for you.

this is such a cool idea.. i will look into it.. my girl scouts are planning on working on a service project and this might help in someway

I think this could be an incredible resource for them.

Being kind and compassionate should be life lessons that as parents we should all focus on. I might just try it out once my oldest turns three.

I agree 100%

Sounds like a great service and resource.

I tried Giving Artfully with my kids! They loved it and I love the concepts of kindness and giving. I would also recommend.

glad you also enjoyed it
