Curated especially for kindergarteners, Kinder Explorations focuses on strengthening fine motor skills, building art literacy, making decisions, and exploring new materials all while stimulating a sense of wonder. Each of our Kinder Exploration boxes is unique and contain high quality, reusable art supplies, developmentally appropriate process art explorations, goals for each exploration that are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, and digital resources that include links to books, videos, and supplemental activities.


Our Mark Making Kinder Explorations Box focuses on mark-making and features the book Bob the Artist by author and illustrator Marion Deuchars. We'll dive into her illustration process and how to make marks using unconventional tools.
