Acrylic painting kits

As I mentioned, I wasn't able to find any more SpiceBox kits, but I did a search for acrylic painting kits on Amazon, and it turns out that there's an entire market devoted to acrylic kits, and it's not just puppies and horsies. My favorites are the ones that enable the aspiring artist to recreate a masterpiece at home. Here's a link to a kit for producing a copy of Van Gogh's Starry Night, which seems like an especially suitable work (I don't have a lot of confidence in the ability of the casual hobbyist to produce an appealing paint-by-number da Vinci Last Supper). It's an expensive pastime, but C is getting older, and I think that it's something that she could grow into, if the interest were there.
