Craft kits are pretty much the perfect way to keep kids busy. They’ll enjoy creating something new and, because kits include all of the materials they’ll need to make their masterpiece, you’ll avoid starting a project only to realize half way through you’re missing essential craft supplies. Crafts kits also include just the right amount of materials needed for a project (so you won’t have to find a place to store lots of extra fabric pieces or miscellaneous glitter canisters after kids have put the finishing touches on their work).
We’ve rounded up craft kits for kids of all ages, covering a range of interests from nature to space, jewelry-making to superhero costume creating. A few kits will help kids make projects that will gussy up your garden (an easy-to-assemble bird house) or windows (sun catchers), and at the very least you’re sure to get some colorful new creations to hang on the fridge. Some of these crafts, like a book kids can write and illustrate themselves, may even become keepsakes.
If you’re still looking for other ideas for kids activities, you can also try these easy DIY crafts for kids, get some fresh air with these outdoor game ideas or a new gardening project, or head to the kitchen and bake something delicious together. Happy crafting!
