Kids love crafts! And not just girls! No matter what age or gender you’re shopping for, we have some amazing gifts for you in our Gift Guide for Crafty Kids!
If you have little ones, you already know how awesome the Color Wonder line from Crayola is! I love the new mess-free stamping! The color wonder inks are clear, but the mess-free light-up stamper magically knows what color you’re using. Hold it over the orange ink pad and the handle lights up orange. Watch it change colors over the green and purple pads too. Includes 12 pages of color wonder paper, 3 mini markers, 10 ocean-themed stamps.
Remember spin art from our generation? I love that it’s back! This art spinner is kid powered, meaning no batteries required. Just squeeze the handle a few times to bring the spinner plate up to speed and drip the paint to create unique art pieces. Make framed cards to give to your friends with the included pre-cut colored cards.
Draw Jammies are machine washable so you can design your jammies, wash and start again. Draw Jammies come with 6 different scented markers that bring life to designs and pictures. Includes 3 stencil sheets, 6 scented markers and 3 glow pens to draw stars, colorful rainbows, animals, letters, names and whatever comes to mind.
I remember doing perler bead activities when I was in Girl Scouts many, many years ago. My four year old loves them now! This bucket of beads will keep kids busy for hours! Create a design on a Pegboard, then iron to fuse the beads together. Bucket contains 6000 beads, 5 reusable Pegboards, Ironing Paper, and easy instructions. Pegboards included are: small square, small circle, small hexagon, small star, and small heart.
I saw the Chocolate Pen at Blogger Bash back in July and knew it was going to be a hit this year! I mean, crafts and chocolate all in one has to be awesome! Includes 50 candy molds, gift bags, and 8 full ounces of premium confectioners chocolate. This would be perfect to use for parties, but would be fun any time!
