Families staying closer to home this April who also want to immerse themselves in a little creative fun can do so right at home with Kids Art Box.

My Artist Box highlights an artist of the month, with this month featuring Leonardo da Vinci.


Kids Art Box also offers limited-time boxes for special holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, Easter and more. A monthly subscription costs $38. In honor of World Art Day, Kids Art Box also offers free art activity downloads here.


In no time, your kid will be inspired to see the true inspiration behind artists like da Vinci and go-to countries like Italy. In the meantime, these fun activities are a great introduction into not just the world of art but also the world and its many cultures and sights.
