Get Painting and have Fun!
Most children love to see their creations develop and find painting and drawing to be a fun pass time. You can find loads of great kits to help inspire your child to put pen to paper. Choose bright colours and don’t be afraid of getting messy with washable poster paints and finger paints. Remember to buy a washable apron some great chunky paint brushes perfect for small hands, and of course you’ll want plenty of paper too.
Fingers love to be messy so modelling clay is also a great alternative to paints. You can buy kits and single packs of clay as well as fun shapes to use and create fun characters and scenes. Choose your materials based in the age of your child along with the skills you are trying to promote. If your child is finding it difficult to master their knife and fork consider beading, knitting and crochet kits to promote good motor skills.
With so much to gain from craft kits they make excellent presents on birthdays and special occasions. Thanks to how affordable the kits are you can also add to kits over the year and continue to enjoy watching your child learn and create great projects together.
