Fancy doing some crafting with your little ones, but short on time or can’t be bothered to traipse round the shops looking for different activities? You probably know by now that I am ALLLLL about ease and convenience when it comes to crafting! So here are some of the best craft kits you can buy to make things a little less painful! 😀

Organised Chaos With Kids Playdough Kits

Organised Chaos With Kids Playdough Kit

I LOVE Organised Chaos with Kids playdough kits. We were kindly gifted a couple last year and they are still firm favourites with the twiglets. The kits come with scented homemade playdough and a whole host of cute bits and bobs, all made from natural materials. Children can create their own little worlds – it’s so open-ended and perfect for imaginative play.

These craft kits from Story Glow are all based around books and are so lovely. You can get one-off boxes or sign up for a subscription. Each kit comes with a story book and lots of related activities, with a focus on mindfulness which is really lovely.

This isn’t exactly a craft kit but more of an activity your little one can do again and again! My Busy Bots make clever little reusable busy bags full of educational activities to keep children entertained. And the best thing? No mess!

(For transparency, we worked with My Busy Bots before on this Ad, but this post is not sponsored in any way – we just love them!)

We’ve used plenty of Baker Ross craft activities before and they’re always fab. They’ve recently started offering a new monthly subscription Craft-It! box which looks amazing. It’s personalised and contains imaginative craft activities for 3-9 year olds.

Well, that’s it! I hope you’ve enjoyed my round-up of the best craft kits for kids! If there are any I’ve missed that you love, do let me know 🙂

  1. Well aren’t these just brilliant?!? I am not very creative myself and I find it hard to come up with ideas. But give me a box with all the bits and I will be all over it 🙂 Little ones birthday is just around the corner so I might have to add one of these to the list #KCACOLS

      Haha yep same as me! I’m rubbish at thinking of ideas so a readymade box is perfect 🙂

  2. We do now a lot of crafting. I didn’t know you can get a box from Baker Ross I will need to check it out. There are so many possibilities now to make kids busy

      Yes there are, thank goodness! 🙂 🙂 xx

  3. How posh does that Hello Beebox box look? I reckon even older ones like my pre-teen stepdaughter would enjoy that. Lots of great-looking packs here. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time.
