Review the Best Kids Craft Kits for the Under 5's

Do your kids have the crafting bug? If you love crafting with your children, grandchildren or pupils, chances are you might have tried out a kids crafting kit or two. So why not give other crafty folk a heads up on the best craft kits for under fives?

Little ones can get crafty in all kinds of ways, from cutting and sticking, to stamping and lacing, or even stitching and folding. Glitter, sparkles, glue and paint are particular favourites in our house!

I've put together a list below of 30 fun and funky craft kits - if you and your kids have enjoyed any of them, then review one (or more!) and let us know how you got on! To give you an idea, I reviewed the Mister Maker Doodle Drawers Craft Kit, which my 4 year old goes back to again and again for hours of crafting entertainment!

Even if your kids (or grandkids) are older now, perhaps there is a memorable kit that was a big hit, or that turned into something special that still sits on a shelf in the house?

When you're done, post your URL in the comments section at the bottom so we can share your experiences! And if you have a craft kit you love that's not shown below, review and share that with us too using this link!

Lots of things to choose from for folks who have little ones to craft with. I know my niece loves to craft with her grandkids. I have great-grands who are far away from me, so I don't get to see them often, but if I did, I know one of my great-grandsons loves sock monkey items. Well done!

I love the craft kits created for children! They give parents a wonderful opportunity to play, teach, and create something awesome with their children.

Even pre-made kits can foster out of the box play:

What a fun selection. Wish my kids were still 'little'...LOL. But, I have a new grandson arriving soon -- might keep this list in mind for when he's a bit older. :)
