The Land of Nod Art Jar- Brilliant!

I love free stuff, and I love having wonderful coworkers who bring me well-loved toys from their kids to pass along to my daughter. So when my coworker, Christine, stopped by my desk yesterday to ask if I wanted anything from her box of goodies that her boys had outgrown, I pounced on this adorable art jar, which had never even been opened!

The I’m Not Bored Anymore Art Jar, Junior from The Land of Nod is just brilliant—all the arts and crafts supplies you need, along with instructions, to make several fun little projects. The Junior version is for ages 3+ (and it’s on sale right now for $14, bonus!), but there’s a regular version too for ages 6+. I absolutely love this concept, and I’m thinking it might be a fun idea to recreate for birthday gifts—you could create a personalized jar label for the birthday girl/boy, personalized instructions, and themed craft projects and supplies. The possibilities are endless!

 

About mommachine

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.

    Amber, after seeing this jar I knew it would be perfect for my friend’s little girl who is a crafting machine. I went to Michael’s to get stuff to put like the jar and found the same kind of kit with very similar pieces. Armed with a 40% off coupon I couldn’t resist. Even better, in the very same aisle was all the stuff to keep refilling it for years to come. I’m so glad Christine brought it by!
