Best buys for crafting with kids

Crafting is a great way to spend time with the kids, keeping them entertained for hours and allowing the whole family to have fun. The scope for activities is extensive, meaning you can always find something new to do and teach the little ones a new skill.

This can also be a cheap hobby – especially when you purchase the right equipment. Here are some must buys when you want to start crafting with your children:

1. Non-toxic pencils or crayons

Non-toxic coloured pencils are the best option for drawing and colouring-in activities since, unlike paints and felt tips, they are less likely to mark furniture or stain clothing. They are also inexpensive and last for a long time when you use a good sharpener. 

Over-threes who may have difficulty using pencils should be equipped with non-toxic wax crayons instead. Check out the My FirstCrayola range.

2. Stencils        
Stencils are extremely versatile and can be reused again and again, making them a really cost-effective piece of crafting kit. Alphabet stencils are a great first purchase, allowing youngsters to create neat messages on any project – StencilWarehouse has a range of fonts and sizes available to suit your needs and preferences.

There are more inventive designs available too, including children’s stencils made especially for small hands. With everything from dinosaur and animal to football and flower shapes available, you will be able to find one that suits your kids’ likes.

3. Safety scissors

Safety scissors are specially designed to keep children safe from harm, and products like these Helix children’s scissors have plastic blades which mean kids can cut paper but not hair. 
However, you should always closely supervise your little ones when they are using them.

Encourage them to create a collage using old magazines; cut out paper dolls, lanterns or snowflakes; or help them make greetings cards and paper chains. MarthaStewart offers more inspiration for child-friendly paper crafts.
