Tote Bag Details
What are the bags being used for?
Step Into Art ordered these totes to hold special new art-making kits that the organization is providing to Boston children in their 2020-2021 school partnership programs. The kits accompany Step Into Art virtual lessons, making it possible for students to continue to enjoy hands-on art-making even during this time of remote learning. The students love their new totes, which help them keep all their supplies organized in one place. They are excited to bring these to their lessons!
Portable Art Kits for Kids
Kids are creative by nature. Their imagination is running wild, and there is nothing we love to see more than when a child’s creativity is brought to life through art. This past year has proven to be especially challenging for parents, as they navigate working from home while having their children at home as well. According to a survey of parents in June of 2020, 44% of children ages 5-10 spend more than four hours each day on electronic devices. Prior to 2020, this number was at about 17%.
Keeping children entertained throughout the day can be a difficult task! Which got us thinking. Much like what Step Into Art is doing in their partnership with the Boston school system. Why can’t we as parents do something similar for our kids at home? We more than likely have a lot of the supplies already. It is just a matter of putting it all together!
