Supplies and Packet

Welcome to China..

..and Art Makes Me Smart Around the World! We are excited for you and your family to explore other countries, their culture, history, and more that will spark your children’s imagination, cultivate their artistic talent, and foster a love for diverse cultures throughout our beautiful world! It's our mission to help children learn more through art.

Country Packet

In our supplemental packet you will find everything you need to help you complete the project, including reference photos, project outlines, and a step-by-step tutorial in case you want a screen free experience (although we highly recommend watching our tutorial videos!)

You'll also find inside the packet that we have pulled together resources that will help you get your children more interested in this country and it's culture with multiple pages of facts and information, history of their national flag, links to videos for all ages to learn more, dance and music videos related to the country, and book lists for children of all ages.

You can download the PDF packet at the bottom of this page and print it for reference or use it digitally and click on the links embedded in the PDF. If the links aren't working for you, don't worry, we also have a resource page that you can use to easily find the supplies, book lists, and video links we recommend.


We have selected supplies for the entire Around the World course with you and your children in mind. These supplies are some of our tried and true favorites, easy to use for all ages, and easy on your budget.
