My Emma, she’s a creative child. She loves to draw and paint and do crafts. She has a huge imagination and uses it all the time to create new masterpieces and amazing adventures.
So in the spirit of that creativity, I’ve put together a gift guide full of gifts that are perfect for any creative child!
Tall Tales Game – This game looks so fun! It’s a creative storytelling game where the only limit is your imagination. Players draw random story elements from a bag and try to come up with their best tale using each piece. The story can be as wacky or fun as your imagination will allow, there are no wrong answers. The perfect way to express creativity and spend time together!
3D Printer Pen – You can turn anything you imagine into real objects! Figurines, jewelry, and more . . . the possibilities are endless!
Eat2Explore Family Dinner Boxes – Eat2Explore is a family dinner box that explores the cuisine of countries from around the world. Kids and parents can create recipes from different countries or even different continents! Kits include the spice/sauce mixes, recipe cards, shopping list, educational material, activity sheets and collectibles. Buy just one box or subscribe for 3 months, 4 months, or a year. Everyone needs to eat, why not make it a fun family activity?
Sewing Kit – This kit has everything your child would need to start learning how to sew. It’s a skill that lasts a lifetime and can be used to make adorable stuffed animals, notebook covers and more. Who knows, maybe you’re raising the next Project Runway winner and this kit is just what your child needs to set them on the path to stardom!
Scratch Art Set – This cool art pad is filled with papers feature exciting colors and patterns hidden beneath a matte coating. Simply grab the wooden stylus and scratch away to reveal the pretty colors beneath.
Tabletop Easel – Emma loves to draw and paint and an easel would be perfect for her! But I’m not really keen on the all the space a traditional easel takes up. This one sits right on a tabletop then folds away for easy storage. It comes with a handle too for easy traveling.
Magnetic Tiles – Magnetic Tiles are all the rage and there’s a good reason why. Kids can create whatever kind of shape, building, or masterpiece that they desire. These tiles teach children colors, shapes including 3D forms, numbers, and magnetic polarities. Magnetic tiles are fun, entertaining, and never go out of style!
Shrinky Dinks – Ah, Shrinky Dinks! I used to play with these myself when I was a kid. Draw whatever picture or design you want on the special paper, cut it out, put it in the oven, and watch it shrink! You can make charms, jewelry, bookmarks, key chains, and more!
Kids Camera – Emma has one of these cameras and it is so fun to see the world from her view. And she’s not the only one who loves it. When her cousins come over, they grab and play with it too! Let your kids develop their artistic eye with a camera that’s durable and includes all the tools budding photographers want to use (like selfie mode)!
Book Making Kit – Having dreamed as a child of writing my own book, I may have internally squealed when I saw this kit. Create your own book. How cool is that! The kit includes ready-to-use cover template pages, story and illustration template pages, markers, and a postage-paid envelope and order form. Let your child create and illustrate their book, mail it in, and in 2-3 weeks you have a full-color 7 x 9 inch hardcover book. So. Freakin. Cool!
KidArtLit Subscription Art Boxes – KidArtLit is an awesome subscription service that sends books and crafts straight to your door. Each kit includes a book and an accompanying craft that relates to the book. Plus, all kits include enough crafting materials for 2 kids (because siblings) with the option add extra kits if you need more supplies. Reading and crafts? That sounds like a box full of family time!
Legos – Legos by themselves are just tiny pieces of plastic, but put them together and you can create just about anything! There are no rules. No limits. If they can imagine it, they can build it. There’s a reason these toys have been around forever. Creativity never goes out of style.
Wooden Art Set – Emma has this exact same art set. She got it for Christmas last year and she loves it! It has everything a budding artist could need! Crayons, colored pencils, water colors, and oil pastels. We use this for everything, even homework!
Do you have a creative child in your life? What’s their favorite way to be creative?
