Review: ACTÍVA Products

Art. Wendi and art. Gosh we just don't mix. I really think I do a decent job homeschooling. But art is continually throwing me for a loop. So when an opportunity arose to do some homeschool crafts using the Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit from ACTÍVA Products, I jumped at the chance. In addition to the Sculpting Kit, ACTÍVA Products also sent us their ACTÍVA Products' Favorite Sculpture KIDS CRAFTS free eBook.

Here is a picture of the box that arrived at our house:

Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit

I was a little overwhelmed with things going on around the farm and with company in town when this project came in for us to review ... so my mother-in-law, Mary, graciously volunteered to head up this project. She picked different projects to do with each of the children, and they were a huge success. I was really impressed by how simple they were and how little mess there was. They really came together very easily!

Mom specifically said that one of the best things about this product was that it was very easy to choose age-appropriate projects using the same box. She said she could easily see adults and teenagers finding fun things to do with it. And she was able to use it with my three-year-old as well.

My three-year-old (soon to be four) daughter worked on a snow man. Here is a video of her working on her project:

My eight-year-old, Sidge, made a Christmas tree. Sidge is always a great sport and excited to try new things -- but he doesn't want to devote a ton of time to anything. This was a perfect amount of attention span for him! Here is a video of him working on his project:

And here is a picture of him with his completed project. He was really proud of what he did:

Isaac, who is nine, wanted to make a bowl. Here is his almost-finished bowl. He ended up doing a lot more painting to it after I took this picture below. I love the smile on his face. He was really proud of his bowl!

Abigail, who just turned six, worked on some star ornaments. But she also wanted to do the same snowman her sister did. And she did a great job! She really has a lot of my husband's art skills in her. You can see that the hat is removable and will be a little candy dish.

Grama and the kids used the Rigid Wrap to make nearly everything seen above. There was a separate bonus product included as well called CelluClay. They used this product to make the nose on the snowman and the ornaments on the bowl. 

Creating the projects was really very simple -- in fact, I could have done it, and I'm not artsy AT ALL. Some newspaper, warm water, scissors, and detailed instructions (which came with) were all it took to get started. Some of the projects required additional materials, but you could definitely do a lot of things by just using what was in the box. 

In addition, the ACTÍVA Products' Favorite Sculpture KIDS CRAFTS free eBook is a full color document with a ton of other great ideas as well. Take some time to check out: Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit today!
