Monster Art Creative Learning Playground

Arts and Crafts is something I am really not that confident. I am not used in anything artsy as well as I am not that good in color combination –at all. I am wondering how would it be if Jami starts schooling and I have to help him with his assignments. Hayy..

In this generation, most ready to make arts and crafts are available in the market. You can buy do-it-yourself things in bookstores left and right then viola, instant arts and crafts for you. =)

I was quite hesitant when I was invited to join an art attack event last weekend. I am not sure if I’ll be able to pull it off since I am really not that artistic, if I may say. I was also told that the art is suitable for ages 4-12 years old but adults are very welcome to try. Jami’s too young for it so I registered my nephew, Gelo who’s 9 years old. Knowing that, I have decided to push through with it and see what this event has to offer.

We headed to SM Dasmarinas early last Saturday since our schedule was 10am. I have decided not to tag along my nephew on the last minute since we were running out of time. With the traffic along Aguinaldo Highway, we reached SM Dasma around 11am na. I was expecting that the event has ended and I may not be able to see what it was. To my surprise, there were children and some parents checking out this booth and realized it was my destination.

From Press Release:

Monster Art is a drop-in art and craft play space where children can have fun, make art and feel good adbout themselves. The aim is to hepl children discover their creative ability, build character and boost their self-confidence through wide varieties of easy, fun and mess-free art and craft activities. At Monster Art, children will make crafts of their choice with guidance from passionate and well-trained artists, which they can bring home and show their parents and friends. 
Monster Art was a small kiosk near Surplus and Bench Fix Salon. As soon as I introduced myself, I was asked to register then made me choose the design that I want. I am not getting it at first specially which design since I have no idea how things work. I ended up choosing Spongebob for my Sand art and an airplane design for my scratch card.

I started checking what other kids we’re doing. One of the assistant called me and explained how to peel of the sticker where we’ll put the sand.

I was told I have to decide which color to put in and make sure I’ll go with darker colors first before heading to the lighter one. I had a little trouble deciding which color to put on since I have to make sure Jami won’t mess up the sand colors placed on a big palette.

He started to scoop some pink colored sand and put it on the next color. Hayyy.. Toddlers talaga. Daryl stayed outside of the kiosk taking some photos while I deal with Jami and the sand art.

He was asked to wear an apron and a name tag too.

I had so much fun doing the sand art and I totally got hooked! I am sure everyone including adults will enjoy it. Nagsisi tuloy ako na hindi ko sinama ang pamangkin ko dito, for sure he’ll love it. 

I tried my best to make Jami understand what we were doing pero all he wants do is to scoop those sands out. Monster Art is really for 4 years old and up. =) 

A little later, Jami got bored so I have to leave him to his Daddy's care while I finish the sand art. Grabe enjoy talaga!! =)

I asked Daryl to finish the scratch art for me while I chase Jami. Hayy sobrang kulit talaga. 

Our finish product. =)
Wag na kayong magtaka kung bakit yellow din ang pants ni Spongebob! Akala ko kasi wala syang shorts tapos legs agad yun.. Hahahaha!

I also had the opportunity to speak to Meerly, the owner of Monster Art. She was very down to earth and knows her product well. Just looking at Meerly made me realize how much she loves art and how passionate she is on what she's doing.

After we're finished with our Mad Monster Package (1 Sand Art Card and 1 Scratch Art Card), I bid goodby to Meerly and offered to take a photo of us as a remembrance.
We also got to take home a loot from Meerly but since I got hooked with it, I bought some for myself and Daryl to try the Sand art too.

These are the scratch cards for P100/ea. The Glow in the dark sand art is also available for P110/ea
 I forgot to take a picture of the Glow in the Dark Sand Art that I bought but it sure was a hit with Daryl and his nephew. I brought one Scratch Card in the office and they loved it too.

If I am just closer to SM Dasmarinas, I would frequent their kiosk. =)

Anyway, Monster Art is perfect as a giveaway on your kid's party, for family gathering (to entertain the kids and kids at heart), or any other parties you could think of. Here's the price list for your reference.

Now if you're coming from south and SM Dasmarinas is quite near your place, you could always drop by to their kiosk. Here's the pricelist for your reference.

This price list only applies when you make your crafts in their kiosk. 

I was really hoping they will open a branch in Mall of Asia so it'll be much accessible. =) For orders an customize designs of your cards, you can email monsterart.ph@gmail.com

Thanks so much Mommy Bloggers Philippines and Meerly of Monster Art for having us.
