Holiday Gift Guide: Get Crafty with United Art & Education!

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

United Art & Education's goal is to make shopping fun for every customer, whether you're an art instructor, elementary teacher, school supply buyer, fine artist or parent.  They have a great selection of educational products and craft supplies to choose from at competitive prices.

My kiddos love to express their creativity through art and building, so we were super excited to receive a couple of fantastic items from United Art & Education.  We think they would both be excellent gifts for the creative child this holiday season!

TAG: The Art Game
A unique, collaborative art game where players take turns adding to the masterpiece. Terrific for one or more players. First, choose a Location card to determine where to start on the shared paper. Next, spin the wheel and toss the dice to determine what color to use. Choose an Action card, then pick a Paint, Draw or Collage card based on the Action card, and follow the directions. Repeat these steps until someone draws a Finished card, and everyone agrees the piece is finished. You will need to supply your own paper, paint, drawing medium, collage materials, glue and scissors. Best for ages 7 and up.

This was really fun for the family to play!  It encourages free-thinking, but gives you a nudge as to what to create.  It's easy to create lots of family masterpieces and cherished memories with TAG!

GoldieBlox Craft-Struction Box
The best of crafts and construction in one! This set features more than 275 parts that kids can use to build a whole host of creations. Contains washers, axles, joiners, belts, tires, stickers, pom poms, springs and more. Online videos offer instructions for making different inventions, too. Encourages spatial and engineering skills (prototyping), plus builds confidence in problem solving. For ages 6 and up.

Both kiddos loved this set!  There are lots of building ideas for inspiration, but some of the coolest creations were the one's they made up on their own..What a great way to encourage creativity and outside-the-box thinking!

If you have crafty kiddos, you should definitely check out the excellent selection at United Art & Education this holiday shopping season!
