World Cultures

Art takes many different forms around the world. With this box, you can introduce your child to a few exciting cultures and create art that’s inspired by these places.

Kids will get the opportunity to make textiles inspired by the women of Peru who’ve been weaving for thousands of years. They’ll make a paper lantern that tells a story and decorate a turtle with a uniquely painted pattern. For the science project, kids will learn about the ancient art and science of making paper. Then, they’ll fold up two pieces of Japanese-inspired origami. It’s a trip around the world without ever leaving your kitchen table!
