The little Think BIG story
Hi! I’m Anna. Owner of little Think Big. Lover of sunshine, fresh air, hearty belly laughs and coffee (all the coffee!) I’m a city girl, married to a country boy, now living in the wonderful town of Kyneton, Victoria. I’m the mama of two young, art-loving kids. And I’m also a neat freak.
I’m a big believer in giving kids as many opportunities as possible to explore, experiment and make their own decisions. As soon as my kids showed interest in creating art, I went all in and set up an art station for them, filled with an abundance of beautiful materials. But I quickly realised that when it comes to kids and art, the word “neat” is rarely part of the equation. And I also discovered that, actually, I don’t think it should be. I loved watching my kids unleash their creative spirit and the joy it gave them. I could also see so many developmental benefits in the process, but my goodness I struggled with the mess in my house!
And so the idea for little Think Big was born. A purpose designed space where kids can freely create and their grown-ups can relax, rather than worrying about the mess.
Since opening the door to my little studio in 2017, so many adults have walked in with a look of sheer relief on their face. They’ve told me over and over again how much their kids love creating art, but they just find the mess factor too difficult.
Clearly, I’m not alone!
My hope is that little Think BIG gives kids a space where they can fully immerse themselves in the creative process. A space where they can enjoy the endless opportunities to explore and experiment with different materials. A space where they can express themselves, build confidence and let their imaginations soar. All whilst knowing that a little mess is just part of the process, rather than a problem.
While COVID forced the closure of the glitter-floored studio in 2020, little Think BIG continues to spark imagination and creativity in kids through art boxes for home and pop-up events.
