Crafts for kids have really improved since I was a child and today our kids have access to a whole range of entertaining craft sets such as the ‘build your own’ kits by Calafant.
Calafant was created by a busy father of two Boris Schimanski, a well-known cartoonist in Germany. His intention was to create something that would occupy his children as he worked on his latest project and so he drew a castle onto cardboard, punched out the pieces and his children then set to work building and painting the castle. A huge success, his children and their friends loved the castle and the idea of Calafant was born.
Calafant crafts for kids are great fun to build and play with, and with a little bit of patience you can create something quite impressive.
The Princess Palace Kit is a beautiful cardboard palace that slots together with ease. No glue, no tools and no sharp edges, it is suitable for children as young as 3 years but appeals to teenagers too! Once completed you can paint, colour and decorate your palace in the way you choose, making this the perfect craft for kids of all ages.
From the same great Calafant collection, the Build & Decorate your own Robot kit is perfect for the half term holidays. As with the princess palace this great Robot is easy to assemble and slots together without the need for glue. Standing over 52cm tall this is a great sized Robot, and you can paint it in any way you like!
If you are already dreading half term why not stock up on a selection of Calafant crafts for kids, they are affordable, easy to build and a whole lot of fun!
