What's the story behind Upcycled Christmas?

Upcycling is kinder to the planet and can be both thoughtful and creative. All the projects in this box are focused on learning how to be imaginative with recycled materials.
The great American Pop artist Andy Warhol LOVED Christmas…! So we’re going to take a look at some of his iconic Christmas cards, and also at the Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City exhibition, held around Christmas time every year in London. This should inspire us to make some fantastic festive fare of our own!

What's inside the box?

2 Art projects inspired by 2 different artists with clear instructions.
1 Leaflet introducing the theme and LoLA recommendations.
Plenty of quality art materials for your child, with lots left over for your art supplies.

Is this a good gift for Christmas?

This box is all about the exciting build-up to Christmas – from creating wreaths and decorations, to printing wrapping paper. We recommend that you enjoy this box while preparing for Christmas – other LoLA boxes will be more suitable as Christmas presents.
