I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I chose a career in art, and as an educator I get to experiment using different mediums all the time. Barron’s Education Series was one of my go-to resources when I taught school.? Now that my children are in school full-time I get to use some of my spare time to create my personal art and just have fun creating.?Barron is one company I can trust to always have great art resources such as Magical Scratch Street Art, Magical Scratch Zen Doodling and Color Quest: Color by Numbers.
I have always loved scratch art! These Magical Scratch books will inspire your child’s free drawing time . . . and surprise them! Kids will find 10 different designs that show through on the black paper when they scratch the surface, plus lots of ideas for drawing and making scratch paper. There’s always a big reveal and surprises galore when children start drawing with the stylus that’s included. Get ready to see kids make their mark with each colorful book!
Magical Scratch Street Art was my favorite resource because it showed the kids examples of graffiti. I love graffiti lettering so I’ve added a couple of samples along with the images I took of the scratch art kit. The book of examples shows projects of graffiti card, proud peacock, wall flowers, alley cat, and more.
I also received a copy of the Magical Scratch: Zen Doodling kit it is more of a relaxing and unwinding kit that includes projects such as a tortoise card, magical mandala, cityscapes, and more.
Color Quest: Color by Numbers was created by Amanda Learmonth and illustrated by Lauren Farnsworth. Kids will love this color-by-numbers book that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. What a great way for your child to create beautiful art pieces with out the stress of figuring out which color to use next. This book has the color scheme laid out for you and all you have to do is color by number. Each page features a color coded puzzle and four clues to help you guess what’s hidden there.
