And the Supplies You’ll Need for Them – Art Teachers

Art can have such a big impact on young kids; whether art is practiced at an after-school club, at home, or in school. It’s a tool for self-expression, a tool to develop and fine-tune their motor skills, a tool to inspire their creativity, but perhaps most importantly of all: it’s just plain fun! Art lets kids explore their creative kids and really lets their imaginations run wild. Even when younger kids are doing the same projects as each other in a group, they’re able to differentiate each of their individual pieces with their own unique styles. The art projects listed below are recommended by experienced art teachers!

It’s important, with any art project, to remember that there isn’t any ‘right’ way to make art. This is really important, especially for younger kids who can use art to explore their creative sides. There are so many areas, even in a child’s life, where their choices can be described as right and wrong, like math or sports. Art can give them a chance to be free and express themselves without judgment.

Art teachers can make a meaningful impact, especially on younger kids, like elementary school students and kindergartners. As an art teacher, an art project for kids might be helping them to explore their creative side, or you may have influenced them to pursue a future career! But while being an art teacher can be just as fun for you as it is for your students, it can also be really hard.

It’s important to plan out your lessons in advance just in case, and having backup ideas never hurts. There are tons of art projects for kids out there online, and it can be hard to pick between them. It can also be hard to come up with your own. So we put together these top 3 art projects for kids that are directly recommended by art teachers from their own art classes. They can help your younger art students explore their creativity, and they can even be recommended to parents as at-home projects!

A Guide to Sharing Your Cart with Share-A-Cart as an Influencer or Creator

Shared on 20 March 2022, by Felix

As a creator, you’re often managing your entire brand, content, and effectively everything else all on your own. Videos can take endless hours editing, creating, and recording. Share-A-Cart is here to try to make at least the small things a little more simple for creators and influencers.

Share-A-Cart isn’t just for when you want to share your Target birthday wishlist with your loved ones, your Instacart grocery list with your roommate, or an IKEA furniture list with your partner. We’ve found that some of our best uses are specifically for influencers and creators!

Maybe you’re looking to share the materials for your latest DIY project on a retro kitchen floor, a beginner’s crochet guide on frogs, or your grocery list for your favorite fancy dinner recipe. Or, maybe you’re looking to share the items from your everyday makeup routine, your favorite Spring outfits, or your at-home gel nail favorites. These are all real ways in which we’ve had creators use Share-A-Cart, just over the past few months!

Supporting more than a million websites.

Shared on 6 January 2022, by Felix

Since it's humble and Amazon-centric beginnings over 6 years ago, Share-A-Cart has grown significantly in terms of usage. We attribute this exclusively to offering a product that is easy to use and offers a consistent experience across a large number of vendors. In addition to a comprehensive list of global retailers, over time Share-A-Cart gained support for national and regional stores. In recent months we've quietly expanded support for many international stores even though we are US-based. Most of the interfaces we added came via questions from our users. People wanted to see Lazada, Shopee, and many other non-US centric online retailers added to Share-A-Cart and we got it done.

Finally, iOS availability for Share-A-Cart!

Shared on 25 October 2021, by Felix

We're happy to announce that the Share-A-Cart experience is now available on iOS. With Apple's latest innovation in iOS 15 we are now able to deliver cart creation and sharing in Mobile Safari on both iPhone and iPad devices. This is especially exciting since so many users have been asking us for just this functionality. In short, anything that you can do with the Share-A-Cart add-on for Chrome and other desktop browsers can now be done in Mobile Safari thanks to extension support.

Let's review what the flow is like using shein.com as an example. First, download the extension from the App Store — you can search for "Share-A-Cart", or click this link. Then, say you found a bunch of nice pieces to make up an outfit and you'd like to share it with your friends. Just make a cart with those items as you normally would while shopping. Once you're done, scroll down on the page slightly to bring up the Safari address bar and click on the left side where you see a puzzle piece icon. (If you don't see the icon, fear not. Tap on the "aA" which will bring up a menu with an item that reads "Manage Extensions". Tap on that and toggle Share-A-Cart on.) This will slide up a menu which will have a button for "Share-A-Cart". Once you tap it, another menu will slide up with two options, "Create Cart ID" and "Receive Cart". Tap on the first one and give the extension half a second to do its thing. At the end of that process you'll get a 5-character code which now represents your cart. No logins, no email or phone number to enter. Just your cart so you can share it. You can tap to "Copy Code" and send it in your favorite chat app or via email.

Share the Whole Look, or 5!

Shared on 30 July 2021, by Felix

SHEIN exploded onto the Western fashion retail in the last few years after being in operation in China for some time. You know that because SHEIN is the absolute place for trendy, affordable women's fashion pieces. While there is a heavy debate over how to actually pronounce the name of the company (although there shouldn't be, it is literally just "she + in") there is a new technology coupled with this website that has made it convenient and easy to share an up-to-date wardrobe. Introducing Share-A-Cart embeddable widgets!

Share-A-Cart adds support for Kroger grocery list creation

Shared on 7 April 2021, by Felix

Today we want to announce expanded support for Kroger shopping on Share-A-Cart. The Share-A-Cart extension has had support for this larger grocer for some time. Today we're adding functionality on the website to allow you to create and edit shopping carts directly on share-a-cart.com.

It's easy to get lost in the list of supported vendors. Between various Share-A-Cart products there are more than 50 on-line stores already functional, 14 of which are grocery stores. Adding Kroger lets us address a frequent user request. On-line grocery shopping has exploded in popularity over the last year. While we had support for several grocers already, adding Kroger allows us to serve several regions of the US where this company has greater presence compared to some of their competition.
