Every child I know (and most adults!) loves to draw, paint and colour.
Perhaps it is due to the fact that art much like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, so it doesn’t matter how old you are or how good you are, you can still create something that looks amazing to you, with just a few brightly coloured pencils or crayons and a great colouring book.
Crafts for kids are becoming increasingly popular, so many manufacturers now make beautiful colouring and painting kits, designed to be complete by children. Sitting at the top of many children's birthday wish lists, these beautiful art and craft sets make the perfect gift.
Like many parents, I like to think my children are learning and being creative as they play, so these delightful art & crafts sets are a perfect way to encourage them to create their very own piece of artwork.
This ‘Spring Art by Numbers Kit’ by Djeco is a perfect example. The kit comes with four illustrated plates; eight highly pigmented felt brushes in a variety of ‘acid’ colours, and a beautifully illustrated instruction booklet to guide your child as they complete each plate.
Once completed, you child will have a great set of art to hang on their bedroom wall.
For something completely different, this Johnny Joe’s Time Travel Colouring book by Rosie Flo is great for taking with you on the road.
Made from quality thick paper, this colouring book features a variety of different images of people travelling through time. From ancient Egyptians to Spacemen, this craft for kids is both educational and entertaining and your child will happy spend hours colouring in the missing arms, legs and hands.
Crafts for kids come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colours, so it is easy to find something to inspire your child.
