Picture Books are magic. There is something so incredibly special about diving into a beautiful picture book with a child! We were recently given the opportunity to check out an amazing subscription box that is perfect for picture book lovers! KidArtLit so generously sent us their October box to review and it is pure magic in a box! I can’t wait to tell you all about it and give you our thoughts!! If you are looking for an out-of-the-box idea for the Holidays…this would be a fan-tastic gift for the book loving, artistic, and creative kids in your life!!
What is KidArtLit?
My family and I adore…ADORE…subscription boxes. What is better than knowing that you have a brand new book arriving every month? I sure can’t think of anything. Well, KidArtLit takes it one step further. Not only are you getting an absolutely beautiful newly released picture book, but you are also getting the supplies to create an amazing art project to go with the book. Books and Art…the dynamic duo! The best part? KidArtLit has done all of the work for you. They have perfectly paired a book and art project, shopped for all of the supplies, and written out step-by-step instructions. It takes all of the guess work out of it! Amazing! Let’s Take a peek inside our October Box and see what it is all about!!
Take a Peek Inside our October Box
As I mentioned, we were generously gifted an October Box from KidArtLit. I was absolutely smitten with the contents and I know you will be too! I will chat a bit later in the post about all of the general subscription details and pricing…so for now lets just dig into the box!!
The book. Oh the beautiful book. The October Box contained a gorgeous title I had never seen before called In My Dreams I Can Fly. The book was originally published in Switzerland by Eveline Hasler and Kathi Bhend. It is a charming story with absolutely stunning and intricate illustrations. This is a perfect fall/winter read that will delight both young and old readers.
The art project that was included in our box was watercolor painting sets. We received some beautiful art cards to paint with bugs and flowers which tied in perfectly with the book. Also included was a FABULOUS Paint Along Palette from Peerless. I had seen these cards before but had never tried them. Wow, was I blown away by the quality of the paints and the vibrant colors!! I am most definitely going to be ordering more! I was also so impressed that KidArtLit chose a small business like Peerless to work with! So wonderful!
I also loved the addition of the BookMarks Magazine. In here you will find a Spotify playlist to coordinate with the book theme…it had such a fun and eclectic mix of music. Also included was a book list (swoon), a letter from the author, instructions, and some bonus material.
We had an absolute BLAST creating our paintings. So much fun. If you want to see a Reel of us in action you can check it out over on my IG page here.

Gift Giving Perfection
With the Holidays right around the corner my brain is immediately focused on gift giving. I am always looking for out-of-the-box gifts for the kids in my life. KidArtLit is the perfect gift. Not only will the kiddos love the book and activities, but the parents will be so happy to have such beautiful quality gifts that will also keep the kiddos busy! I mean…right? Who doesn’t love that?? I also love that it is the gift that keeps on giving. If you purchase a 3 month subscription, the kiddos get 3 months of excitement as they wait for their package to arrive! Kiddo’s love getting mail…and book mail is the best mail. Trust me.
I want to send a huge thank you to KidArtLit for sending me this box for review. We absolutely LOVED the contents. We also love your mission of bringing books and art into homes everywhere! Creating a lifelong love of books, reading, and art is such a passion of mine and I adore that KidArtLit does just that!!
