In this pack artist, Alexa Lowe invites you to make boats using objects you have at home, funky fashion with discarded clothes and crazy creatures working with recycled materials. Each activity has an Outdoor Play suggestion for the same task using items you can find in the park or your garden.

Boats, Crowns & Creatures is the third of a series of packs designed by our wonderful Artist Associates for families to make art together over the summer. This series of activity packs have achievable tasks that any family member can do from home, regardless of their age (please note younger children may need help from adults).

The pack is intended for children ages 2+ to 8-year olds.
