Arts and crafts.
Just the words bring up a wide variety of memories and feelings for adults. Most of us grew up during a time when some form of arts and crafts activities were a regular part of school days. And many of us had the joy of doing various arts and crafts projects at home on our own or with siblings or parents.
However, far too many adults grew up and either the interest waned or there was no longer any time available to indulge in the extremely gratifying fun of arts and crafts projects.
We’re here to say that it’s never too late to jump in again and there’s no good reason to wait until you’re in an active senior facility doing projects for rehab purposes. (Which is a wonderful thing, too, by the way!) You can try these fun arts and crafts kits from Fundemonium right now and rediscover the joy of making something beautiful or crafty with your own hands.
Differentiating Between “Arts” and “Crafts”
For many people, there is no difference, and it is all just one big jumble of paper, sticks, glue, paint, pipe cleaners, and whatever else they use. And that’s perfectly fine.
For example, don’t bother trying to define the subtle distinctions between a work of art and a crafted item to a kid. Not only do they not care, but it’s likely that they see all their own creations as “art.” And so do their parents, for that matter, which is as it should be.
However, just to scratch that “nerd” itch in some of us, let’s briefly consider these words.
Simply put, we typically use the term “arts” to refer to the products and practices of painting, sculpture, and printmaking and we call activities like ceramics, weaving, wood and metal-working “crafts”. Regardless of your own understanding of “arts and crafts” the real thing to know is that they are enjoyable no matter how old or young you are.
Arts and Crafts Kits for Hours of Enjoyment
At Fundemonium, our Art Faire is where you will find arts and craft kits of all kinds. Art and craftwork are some of the oldest and most fulfilling human pastimes. Whether your project is purely for display, or it’s something with practical use, it is something you made yourself and it is unique to you.
For boys and girls, the magic of make-believe never wanes, and pretending to be royalty can be a blast. You can fix them up for that with our Princess and Prince Kits that have everything they need to make crowns, wands, and even a treasure box for the crown jewels or other treasures! These kits come complete with all the supplies needed and easy-to-follow instructions are included, too.
Who doesn’t love stuffed animals? And who wouldn’t love to make their own? Whether you are 9 or 89, there are huggable and loveable stuffed, furry friends you can make right at home. With our Animal Creation Kits you get:
- Your choice of animal friends such as bears, puppies, rabbits, and even unicorns (Or we can surprise you!)
- An official Adoption Certificate
- A white shirt for your new friend
- Glue-on decorations
You simply provide your own markers to customize the shirt, glue for the decorations, and lots of love for your new, hand-made, stuffed friend.
Need a new dish, vase, or salad bowl? Why buy one at the department store when you can own a custom and hand-crafted original? At Fundemonium, our Paint Your Own Porcelain kits let you do just that. Each kit comes with either pre-made, high-quality porcelain vases, plates, or bowls, 12 colors of paint, and a paintbrush.
These kits let you design your own creations then oven-bake for a glossy, display-worthy finished product. Full-color instructions show you how to create the artistic effect you want—color mixing, brushing, sponging and more!
- Celebrate birthdays, holidays, and special occasions with your own designs
- Use as a decorative item for around the house or as a personal gift
- Teach children creativity, hand-eye coordination, color-mixing, and fine motor skills
- Paint and bake for a personalized craft you can display
- Great for a family project, at the next play date, or as a gift
In addition to the great craft kits we have dozens and dozens of coloring, painting, sketching, drawing, and other more “artistic” kits for the Michaelangelo in you.
