Hearts and Trees Bubbles and Lavender Kit

I am pleased to introduce my newest endeavor:

Hearts and Trees 

Bubbles and Lavender 

Art, Handicraft and Nature Study Kit

My mom and little brother and I have teamed together to create the newest generation of Hearts and Trees kits. The purpose of Hearts and Trees has remained the same: to introduce and encourage art, handicrafts and nature study in your homeschool. The real change is the division of labor between my mom and little brother and me. (Hopefully this will mean I will be able to offer kits more regularly!)

Anyway, here is what this kit offers:

To start with we have a felt bracelet project. Your child will create his own felt bracelet. Your child will learn how to sew on a 4-holed button. A variety of colors of felt will be provided (colors may vary from the photo above) as well as the needle, thread, buttons and instructions. 

 
One of the themes throughout this project is bubbles. Your child will make his own bubble wand using pipe cleaners and beads. The pipe cleaner, beads and instructions are all included.  


Along with that there is a bubble painting project. Your child will create his own bubble paint and then use the included watercolor paper, straw and instructions to make a painting with bubbles. This is sure to be a hit!

There is also a notebooking page focusing on how to make bubble letters. A link to a video tutorial is included.

 Another project is the foam and foil pendant. Your child will create his own design to emboss on a foil covered piece of foam. The possibilities are endless for this one! Your child is free to be as creative as he likes. The foam, foil, yarn and instructions are all included.

For the lavender focused part of this kit, your child will create a dried lavender sachet. The fabric, thread, needle yarn and dried lavender and instructions are included. ***PLEASE NOTE: If you or your child is allergic to lavender just let us know and we will not send the dried lavender!***

There is also an eight page nature journal focusing on lavender. Your child will assemble the nature journal using the cover, pages and a length of twine. A sample lavender flower is provided for you to study. The cardboard, rubber bands and link to instructions are provided so that you can make a flower press. Waxed paper and instructions are also included to make a waxed paper pouch to mount the pressed lavender into the nature journal. 

The artist study features Jean Simeon Chardin. An art print of his painting Soap Bubbles  and 2 notebooking pages are found in this kit. 

In all there in this kit there are:
  • 2 sewing projects
  • 2 handicraft projects
  • 1 painting project
  • 1 drawing project
  • 1 nature study collection of projects focusing on lavender
  • 1 artist study collection of notebooking pages with art print
These kits were gathered with children ages 6-12 in mind. Parents may need to help their students, especially younger children, with some aspects of this kit. (Please note you will need to supply some common art supplies to complete these projects such as scissors, paintbrush and markers. A list of common supplies you will need is included with the kit.)

To purchase a kit you will just need to make a PayPal payment to my account. You can do that using the "Add to Cart" buttons in my sidebar. Just be sure to select the right number of kits you would like to purchase.

The cost per kit is $12.95 plus shipping. Shipping for one kit will be $3 First Class. Shipping for two kits will be $5 First Class and shipping for three kits will be $8 First Class. (Please note if you purchase 3 kits they will come in 2 envelopes.) For information about purchasing more than three kits, please email me for shipping information. Shipping prices are for the US. (For information about shipping outside of the US, please email me.)
All kits will ship within 3 business days of payment being made. Feel free to add any of my PDFs to your cart before you purchase a kit. I have purchased materials for a limited number of kits so be sure to purchase your kit soon.
