Crafty Gifts for Kids
This is the perfect gift for even the youngest of crafty kids. The classic Etch-a-Sketch of our childhood has a colorful new update.
Use this giant poster as a wall or a floor color activity. Either way, this will keep crafty kids of all ages entertained for HOURS.
Because you know you’re going to need new coloring supplies to go with that giant poster. Keep every color under the sun organized and handy in a carry case.
Let your little ones design and paint their own toys, and get a craft and a toy for the price of one!
I was obsessed with scratch art boards as a little girl. Scratch away the black top coat to reveal colorful designs. This spiral bound book is also a perfect solution to keep little ones entertained during the holiday travel season.
Recommended for ages 6 and up, this is the perfect starter kit for a budding crafter. Filled with all of the essential supplies – pipe cleaners, poms, beads, googly eyes, and more – Kids can spend hours creating, only limited by their imagination.
This is the perfect way to introduce kids to sewing. Pre-cut animal shapes and plastic needles set little ones up for success as they create their own cute woodland creatures.
This kit contains absolutely everything your kids need to make their own pottery creations – clay, paint, and even a drop cloth and apron to help contain the mess.
Origami is a great option for older kids (or even tweens). I love these paper plane kits, since the final origami product doubles as a toy that will keep kiddos entertained for (hopefully) hours.
According to a friend who teaches, paracord wristbands are back and popular again. This is a perfect gift for any young boy who needs a reason to sit still for a little while!
I love duct tape crafts! Let your tween decorate (and re-decorate) a custom water bottle with stickers and tape.
This book has single-handedly turned me into a superhero in my home. Yes, I have super powers in the eyes of my children. Why? Because I can draw any animal on demand, thanks to this book. It’s filled with a little over 100 pages of easy to follow step-by-step illustrations.
Do you know a parent who loves pinterest, but maybe struggles bringing all of those ideas and inspiration to life? This is the book for them. It is filled with 100 ideas to help bring parents and children together through crafting.
