This week we are featuring CRAFTING GIFTS which I took to mean anything that was a kit and creative for the child to build or make! We love getting crafty and working with our hands. We try to attend free craft events like Home Depot’s monthly kid build or local library’s Lego club.

There are many creative kits from my childhood that I have shared with my children or at least shown them. I remember making spirograph pictures, potholders and bracelet’s on loom kits. We were learning about Pioneer’s a couple year’s ago so my mom gave us a potholder loom kit. Each of my children tried to make a potholder.

For Christmas and Eldest’s birthday last year, he was given two kits from Red Tool Box. Grandma gave him the toolbox for Christmas and the bird house for his birthday. He had lots of fun building the toolbox. Princess helped oversee that her brother and dad followed the directions. We have not built the bird house because we need to buy wood glue. We now have wood glue and will need to make that cute house for this Winter.

Lil’ Red was given a Melissa & Doug Toolbox as part of a diaper rewards program ( free for diaper points). It is one of those gifts that we put away for awhile and then bring back out so it seems brand new!

Science kits are almost ALWAYS popular with kids. Do you know kids that like to experiment and live on the edge so to speak. We’ve bought fun science kits small
(crystal growing kit) and large (young scientist series) as well as bits and pieces like tornado tube or mentos geyser tubes.

More fun things that make great presents are travel games and oldies but goodies like Mr. Potato Head or Easy Bake Ovens. I recently found a travel Lite Brite and Guess Who games on the cheap! My hubby and I both had Lite Brite’s growing up but our original one’s had broken cords. I was astonished at the prices of the new ones and how tiny they are!

Hope this has given you some more ideas for gifts for all the creative kids in your life.

    My toddler has a little play toolbox as well and LOVES it! I’m also looking forward to when he’s old enough for things like the woodworking crafts -I have fond memories of building things like that with my dad.

    These are great ideas! We also have a Melissa & Doug toolkit that my daughter loves. She pulls it out when her dad is working with his tools. Very cute!
