Smile Create Repeat is a venture by Manchester artists Tony and Kim Luongo, who were inspired by the excitement they saw in their own children as they put their creativity to paper, often sprawled on the living room floor together as a family.

They have come up with a great way for others to capitalize on their own love of art and creativity, with the monthly themed Each Smile Create Repeat box. You can try just one, or subscribe to receive a box every month.

Each box comes with five or more quality art supplies, a “creativity card” with ideas and a ready-made art lesson, plus additional surprises, delivered right to your door. The Luongos encourage recipients to “share” their creations via Facebook. They are about $20 per month, with discounts for six- and 12-month subscriptions. Shipping is free in the U.S., and included in International Gift subscriptions.

The art boxes are designed for artists of all ages and skill levels, from about age 5 up.
