Here are some of the best craft kits for kids that we’ve found!
You don’t have to have a whole stash of craft supplies or have to worry about teaching a particular skill. In fact, it can sometimes be fun to learn how to do some of things projects right along with them!
I’m sharing some of our favorite craft kits my kids have enjoyed, as well as a few I’m planning to buy as gifts in the future.
Felt Animal Sewing Kit
This felt animal sewing kit is a great little kit for those beginning to learn how to sew. (And these can be a great thing for your kids to create to give as gifts for relatives!)
String Art Kit
String art kits can be such a neat craft, because it takes some setup and patience, but the end result looks so cool and can even be displayed as an art piece. Here’s a great string art kit for getting started, that includes a book with step by step instructions. This rocket string art kit is a favorite one my boys have done, but there are tons of different options depending on what your child is interested in.
Perfect for dragon-loving kiddos, these high-quality dragon paper airplanes are an amazing kit. It’s full of lots of paper with interesting patterns and designs for dragons. I particularly love craft kits like this that keep my kids playing even after they create.
Adorable and simple to make, this pom-pom pet craft kit includes an instructional book with step-by-step, photo illustrated instructions. It makes an inexpensive gift for Christmas, birthdays, or to put in Easter baskets. My kids had so much fun making these little pom-pom pets!
Origami ranges from simple to complex, but it’s always fun for a child to see how a simple piece of paper can transform into something magical. We love this little kit because it comes with all the paper you need a booklet showing you how to make the creations. It’s a great way for a child to get started with origami.
If you have an older child or one looking for something for more complex, this kit here is another good choice.
While it may seem like just a simple kit, I love craft kits that kids can do to make something useable – like this adorable mini eraser craft kit. It can be really empowering for kids to be able to practically use something that they’ve poured time and energy into creating.
These are adorable, and can make not only a great craft your kiddo can use or wear themselves, but also to create gifts for others.
Doodle Crates from KiwiCo
I have a whole post on different crates from KiwiCo, but in this post I want to highlight Kiwico’s Doodle Crate. It’s a high-quality craft crate for kids. It’s recommended for kids ages 9 – 16, but even my seven year old has enjoyed doing many of the projects with a little assistance.
You can read more of my honest thoughts on KiwiCo crates and whether or not they’re worth the price here.
Whether you’re looking for a gift or just some fun activities for your kids to do, any of these craft kits are a great choice for creative kiddos!
