Cool School is a safe YouTube channel that hosts aspirational, educational, and informational videos for children featuring classic children's stories, nursery rhymes, lullabies, fun kids songs, educational music, arts and crafts, history, science, math and more. A limited-edition Cool School Craft Box brings the videos to life for DIY enthusiasts.
One of two Cool School video hosts is a glitter-loving personality named Crafty Carol who walks children through basic craft tutorials. Limited Edition Cool School Craft Boxes can be purchased online and mailed to you with all (well, most) of the supplies needed to complete one Crafty Carol's holiday projects.
We received a Halloween-themed Craft Box to craft a Spooky Ghost Tote and Spider Pops alongside Crafty Carol's video tutorial:
Both projects were very basic and manageable for small children. Sebastian is 7 and could watch the tutorial on his own and interpret the instructions. The crafts are quick and easy to complete (although Sebastian got a little crazy with the paint) and the box includes stickers and an activity book as well. It's a fun little treat that will keep your kids occupied for about 15-20 minutes. Lollipops were not included for the Spider Pops craft and there was a step in the video with cardboard that wasn't included either. There are no written instructions so you must watch the Youtube video to understand the craft's objective unless your little one wants complete creative freedom. Sebastian took some creative liberty himself with the tote:
Overall, he had fun with the Halloween projects and would definitely be interested in the next Craft Box, so that's a solid endorsement!
