Too often children’s art projects spend a few days center stage on the refrigerator
door before being relegated to the recycling bin. But with My Keepsake
Clock Kit, Balitono Inc. has created a simple yet useful art
project that can be proudly displayed in any room of the house. What better
way to encourage an 8 year old to master the new skill of telling time than
with a clock they can decorate themselves?
The kit comes with everything you need to turn the 7” x 4” wooden clock
and drawer into a unique creation: paints, varnish, brushes and stencils.
All that’s needed is a child’s imagination and one AA battery. At $17.00,
My Keepsake Clock Kit is an inexpensive way for a child to celebrate their
latest passion, be it horses, fire trucks, sports, or dinosaurs.
A winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award, the kit is recommended
for ages eight and up. Although a child can complete the clock without
adult assistance, this is one of the few art kits that truly live up to
the designation “joint project for adult and child.” Unlike many arts
and crafts kits where the adult portion is too often relegated to boring,
but necessary, safety steps—such as overseeing use of the oven—this is
a kit that adults and children can share without the child becoming frustrated
or the adult struggling to stay awake.
With My Keepsake Clock Kit, kids can enjoy a high-quality yet reasonably-priced
art kit suitable for everything from a rainy day diversion to making a
special birthday gift for Grandma.
