The Tate's Art in a Box set of activity cards are an easy way for parents to introduce young children to the wonders of the iconic Gallery's permanent collection. The dynamic set of 20 cards were designed by Buddy Creative, who was tasked with creating the illustrations and packaging for the set.

The Art in a Box set is a great stimulating activity for busy parents on the go, whether they are carpooling to soccer or waiting at an airport gate. The set features artists such as Paul Klee, Barbara Hepworth and Chris Ofili.

Each card is dedicated to a particular artist and a piece of theirs contained in the Tate Gallery's collection with a list of activities inspired by the work so that children can apply what they learn as they go.
