KLUTZ book giveaway (Stamp Art & Draw the DC Universe)

I love the Winter months and loathe them at the same time. Snow is beautiful and it makes the world seem so peaceful and serene. It’s also fun to go sleigh riding, make snowmen and have snowball fights. Things I dislike about snow is driving in it, shoveling it, how gross it looks when it turns black with car dust/dirt and having my kids stuck inside.

When it’s too cold to be outside, and the kids are bored, they drive me bonkers. There for I am always on the look out for activities they can do to keep them occupied (and help keep my sanity – ha ha).

Klutz, a company that makes a lot of fun activity books and kits for children, send me some great kits for my kids.

Stamp Art makes stamping simpler, and more creative, than ever. Stick the included shapes on the see-through acrylic block to create your own one-of-a-kind stamp design. Full of inspirational artwork and instruction, this stamp-right-in-it book shows how to create animals, flowers, houses, aliens… anything you can dream up. Retail $16.99. For more information please visit http://bit.ly/vO9KXL.

 

Draw the DC Universe is a complete how-to-draw package, jammed with expert tips and techniques, tons of practice space, and of course, a universe of DC heroes and villains. The draw-right-in-it book comes with everything you need: a sketching pencil, a drawing marker, artist’s pencils in six colors, a big block eraser to fight crimes against the page, stencils, and translucent overlays scattered throughout for can’t-fail tracing activities. Retail $19.99. To learn more please visit http://bit.ly/sLlBeE.

I gave my daughter the Stamp Art kit and my son the DC Universe drawing kit. Each kit has everything you need to get started right away.

My daughter has always loved art, and she does well at art. She started to use the book the way it was intended, but after a while she stopped using the stamps and was free-hand drawing the examples given in the book. My daughter is 14. I think the book is a bit too young for her and her skill level.

She did enjoy testing out the different shapes for the stamp. Was worried she would smuge the ink and get ink all over the place, but thankfully that didn’t happen.

The kit featuers a nice assortment of shapes you can use to create things like dogs, a snail, sea turtle, space ships, jungle animals and more. The kit features the stamps to make the basic shapes, plus colored pencils to fill in the details. Throughout the book you’ll also find background pages you can use to bring your creations to life.

I think this is a cute book/kit. My daughter did too but she used the colored pencils to draw the basic shapes and drew her creations based on the step-by-step instructions. Don’t get me wrong, she did have fun with it. I just think it was too young for her. I’m thinking it would be better for children 6-10?

My son received the Draw the DC Universe Kit. My son is not really into super heros, but his friends are. He was excited to learn how to draw them in hopes of impressing his friends. Sadly he gave up very quickly.

He was OK with the stick figure part. He had a bit of trouble with what the book refers to as “pipes”. It was the details that really bothered him. He had a hard time with the details.

My son tends to be too hard on himself and he totally lacks confidence and self esteem. If things don’t work out for him from the start he tends to get turned off from it quickly. It wasn’t the book/kit more so then a personality “quirk” of his.

I tried to draw the people in the book too. It is sort of hard to add the details, and I was always good at art.

This book/kit is geared more towards ‘tweens and maybe even a young teen.

Here is a video about the Draw the DC Universe book.

Both books are pretty cool, and I think they would make a great holiday gift or activity to keep on hand for the long Winter months.
