Creative Kids Eligibility
All NSW kids between the age of 4 and a half and 18 who are currently enrolled in school and whose name is included on a Medicare Card are eligible for a $100 voucher to spend at any Creative Kids provider.
If you haven’t applied for a voucher yet this year, you will be able to do so and use it prior to its expiry on 31 December 2020.
For eligibility, more information, where you can use the voucher, and to apply please refer to Service NSW.
Where can I use my voucher?
On the Service NSW website, you can type in your suburb and find a local provider or you can find places that will send you craft packs by mail. Many places have priced their offerings at or below $100. If you spend up to $100 you will have no more to pay – though some retailers will charge you postage.
Some examples of where you can use your voucher are:
Creative Directions & Co – choose 2 packs with everything you need to paint, draw, make clay, sew or create from mosaic
Splash on Peel – amongst other things choose from a mega sketch kit, mega paint pour and draw kit, or a mega art kit
Charlie Boots – choose an age-appropriate workshop kit, get all the materials to make things like a carousel, a pencil holder box, or do some paint by numbers. Instructional videos are included.
Thinking Artz – a range of packs for a range of ages, starting with Budding Artists through to a Write and Design Pack.
Don’t miss out
There really is something for everyone!
Why not look at paints and canvasses for the kids, and get them to paint their loved ones a gift for Christmas?
And there’s not just painting – there are wooden kits to be assembled and decorated, clay and sewing kits to create a variety of things.
If none of those appeal to your child, there are also some great practical things you can purchase to encourage a love of drawing or colouring in, stock up on sketch books, pencils, felt pens and a range of things to keep the kids drawing for months.
