Sara Smith of Narwhal Natural  spent most of her life in IT before she ventured into web design in pursuit of a more creative outlet.

However, Sara found that web designing was actually analytical; more science than art. She wanted a creative outlet, and so did her children.



Sarah realized that arts and crafts are not as prevalent in our schools as they once were, so she went to toy stores to supplement the art her children were exposed to in school. When Sara went to buy craft projects for her son she found a plethora of pink boxes featuring pictures of girls. Dismayed at the lack of arts and crafts available for boys, she set out to create gender neutral products targeted at the 8 – 12 age range and Narwhal Natural was born.


Narwhal Natural offers craft products delivered monthly. The boxes contain high quality ingredients so that children can create crafts that will last for years. Additionally, the boxes contain enough supplies to make more than one of each craft. The projects are designed so that kids can complete them on their own; no help from parents needed! Each box comes with step by step instructions along with photos of each step. By providing an opportunity for kids to complete the crafts on their own, developmental skills like reading and following instructions are strengthened.


Narwhal Natural boxes not only help kids developmentally, they help kids break away from their dependency on screens and media.  The craft boxes keep kids happily entertained for hours without relying on technology. Narwhal Natural products also encourage kids to connect to the outdoors by encouraging them to collect items from nature.  Please stop by Narwhal Natural and try their kid tested craft boxes.
