Two Peoria organizations have created a new way for kids to get away from the computer screen.
The Kidtastic Kits for Kids each have a hands-on arts and crafts activity inside, along with directions and all the supplies required including scissors. The kits were put together by Art Inc. and the Peoria Playhouse Children's Museum trying to bring arts class home for students learning virtually.
"It's a whole new experience. Lot of the time, we are used to making art just in a classroom with a dictated response. And this is something very open-ended that the family can enjoy," Tessa Martinez, the program manager for Art Inc., said.
There's a different project theme every month; this month is puppetry. Boxes can be bought individually or through a subscription online at artincpeoria.com
