In a world that increasingly undervalues creativity, I am always so happy when OwlCrate Jr. delivers fun activities and products that prompts kids to use their individual creativities and perspectives! Here is a look inside July’s Creativity Conquers All box: 

After June’s box delivered one of my favourite items ever included, the amazing literary tin suitcase, OwlCrate Jr. delivers me another goodie to match it – this gorgeous canvas art supply roll-up featuring official artwork from the amazing graphic novel Nightlights by Lorena Alvarez. I L-O-V-E this graphic novel series, having been blown away by Alvarez’s expression of bold colours. This is such an incredible item! OwlCrate Jr. continues to outdo themselves!! 

What is creativity without a little painting? Painting is so therapeutic … even though I am absolutely rubbish at it! Included this month is a tin of high-pigment water-colour paints and a water reservoir paintbrush in a keepsake box, inspired by the picture book The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds. Artwork designed by @heatherslettering.

Always the professionals, OwlCrate Jr. included a pad of water-colour paper so you or your little artists can get right to work! This pad features one of my favourite creativity quotes from Maya Angelou and was designed by @inkandwonder. 

This adorable tassel bookmark was designed by @bookofkellz and features a quote from Inkheart: “Writing stories is a kind of magic too.” A great addition to this box that reminds us creativity comes in many forms. 

I love washi tape. Ok, I’m a wee bit obsessed – you can never ever have too much! I love this Pattern Party washi tape from @aclaussdesign. I know my daughter will have fun decorating up her many journals and of course, her reading planner from the December “Winged Beasts” box. 

This month’s collectible sticker was designed by @lunartcy. 

Processed with Focos

Time for the book! July’s book pick is one I’m super excited for – Kiki Kallira Breaks A Kingdom by Sangu Mandanna. This Indian mythology fantasy adventure sounds fantastic and this exclusive edition came with a signed bookplate and letter from the author!
