20 Best Craft Kits for Kids in 2020
Sometimes all children need a blank sheet of paper and some art materials to get their creativity flowing. Other times, they need a little inspiration to get started. When you need your next fridge masterpiece, it’s time to take out some cool craft kits for kids – one of our favorite kids’ activities to keep them occupied for hours.
These children’s art kits can be delivered in a box, but they don’t stifle their artistic intuitions – it’s not about coloring in the lines. Boys and girls, toddlers and teens can all find something that will spark their imaginations. The kits will give them the materials to start with, of course, but the rest depends on the artists themselves: some give you 2D artwork ready to hang (or even framed), while others will help them create something that is intended to decorate their rooms. because children love to personalize their own spaces.
Prepare to break the markers, glue, twine, stickers, tissue paper, pads and even stones and start creating. (And, parents, we are feeling your difficulties, so we tried to find kits that weren’t too complicated either.) When all is done, you can have your own studio day open at home and have art exhibition of incredible new works.
Cute craft kit for toddlers
Damage Free Shark Baby Coloring Set
Draw your own comic book
The pages of this book are blank comics, so artists can create their own superheroes and tell their own stories. There are also section divisions, in case they want to start several sagas at the same time.
Glitter Dots keychain
There is something soothing about using Crayola’s glitter dots – they are rolled up as glitter balls, and you apply them to your work wherever you want. (Bonus for parents: no mess! The glitter is self-contained in its own sphere of glue.) With this Glitter Dots set, kids can stick the dots on three different adorable key chains.
Enchanting Nature Scratch Art Kit
Paint and decorate wooden vehicles
This kit is partly handcrafted and partly artistic, because children must assemble the wooden train and the monster truck before they can paint them. And if children really like to paint on wood, there are also DIY butterfly magnets.
You do not need to color or glue these mosaics – instead, everything is done with self-adhesive stickers. The stickers are even small pictures, so the mosaic cereal bowl, for example, really looks like pieces of cereal.

My tissue art
Small artists will be impressed with their own abilities after tackling these artistic projects. They don’t even need to master a stick of glue – the cardboard shapes are already sticky, and kids just need to inflate the tissue paper and put them in the right sections. This set makes six trades.
