Have you ever seen Youtubers open mystery boxes of art supplies? You know the ones; the monthly boxes containing mystery art supplies, which they then forget to cancel!

So, we thought, why not create our own mystery art supplies boxes and then send them to each other? How fun!

Why not try it yourself? Pair up with a friend, set a budget and send each other a mystery box of art supplies of your own choosing.

We set a budget of just £5, so we could only purchase really cheap art materials. In this video, Sandra is opening the art box that Tara created for her. She pretends to look pleased when secretly I think she thinks it’s the worst art subscription box ever… And now she has to try them out!

The great thing about an art supplies box that someone else creates for you is that it forces you to try out new art materials and experiment with art materials you may not have tried before.
