When I started thinking about gifts for my boys, I knew I needed to get them some arts and craft supplies. My boys absolutely l.o.v.e. to create. We go through art supplies super quickly, so a Craft Kit was in order! DIY craft kit for kidsThis one is a really quick and easy gift – and can also be inexpensive!

Suggested supplies to gather:

  • ribbon
  • pipe cleaners
  • markers
  • cardstock
  • pom poms
  • stickers
  • stencils
  • washi tape
  • fun hole punches [using discretion to make sure the child is old enough for these, of course]

I also dug through my supplies from my wannabe-scrapbooker days and found some cool shaped hole punches and different colors of cardstock that I had but haven’t used in years.

I like this one with an attached lid, because then it can’t get lost. And in my house, it definitely would get lost. You could even paint your child’s name on top to personalize it!

You could get super creative with this Craft Kit, depending on what kind of art your littles like to do. Think: paint and paint brushes, decorative edge scissors, stamps and ink pads, yarn, glue, etc. Anything your little one could use to get creative!

Now make sure you head over to Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy to see the amazing Angry Bird Pouches she has!
