The 55 companies that have provided items for review and giveaway are almost exclusively made up of work-at-home shops or companies that are dedicated to supporting eco-conscious choices. I'm featuring one of those companies in my review below.

In total, we're giving away goodies worth more than $2500!
Even if you don't win one of our fabulous prize packages, please consider spending part of your gift-giving budget at one of these small businesses. By supporting small businesses, you are helping families, boosting local economies, and supporting ethical practices of manufacturing, production and selling. Take advantage of coupon codes provided by many of the companies, you can find them in the full Gift Guide at NPN.

Without further ado, here is my review - thank you for reading and entering!
This is a Joint Review and Giveaway of the Eco Art / Craft Kit from Arttero between Natural Parents Network and Momma Jorje.
While most art/craft kits come with cookie-cutter projects and cheap materials, Artterro kits offer inspiration and different materials in each kit. You don't know which papers or fabrics you'll have in your kit until you have it!
Artterro is passionate about bringing quality materials to families, to save us the task of gathering the items ourselves (with kids in tow). This allows for more time being creative! My teenage daughter & I tried out the Collage Jewelry Kit, but there are several kits from which to choose.
There was a lot of variety among the materials included in the kit. Tissue paper came in several colors and there were different wooden shapes. There were 3 different options of what to make with the materials and enough to make multiple items.
The projects did require some patience, but the paintbrush included was excellent quality and there was plenty of gloss for everything. We loved that the materials included were natural and recycled! The package for the kits uses minimal cardboard and is prefect for displaying your own artwork. This product is very eco-friendly!
Not only are the materials and packaging very "green," I was very impressed that Artterro uses Goodwill Industries to assemble and ship their kits! They have also donated kits to Project Kids in Cambodia. Even their in-store display racks are eco-friendly! I just felt that Artterro was the kind of company I want to support.
You can purchase your own Eco Art / Craft Kit or Art Journal Kit from Artterro starting at $12.95. There are a variety of kits available. These kits would not only make great gifts themselves (I know my daughter would love to try them all!), the contents would make for great handmade gifts! The kits seem to offer a taste of new crafts, too. There are some wool sets, canvas, bookmaking... Its a great way to try a new style of craft without committing to an entirely new hobby!
For your own chance to win an Eco Art / Craft Kit from Artterro, or one of the 26 huge prize packages we're giving away, come back to this post tomorrow (November 6th), when our rafflecopter goes live, for your chance to enter!
