The countdown to Christmas is on! Shopping for the kids is one of the most fun parts of the season. While they may have their own ideas for what to ask Santa for, surprises are always appreciated and you can’t go wrong with kid’s craft kits. They’re guaranteed boredom-busters that won’t break the bank.

One of the reasons we love kid’s craft kits is that there’s something for everyone – from science fans to young fairies and fashion designers, we’ve compiled a list of the best kid’s craft kits that will keep them occupied over the Christmas holidays. They include projects children will come back to again and again, stocking filler ideas and even craft kits that could be gifted inside a Christmas box to be enjoyed the night before Christmas.

There’s much more to kid’s craft kits than just coloring in. They’re a chance to learn new skills, inspire their imagination and make handmade treasures. We’ve found candle-making kits, pottery kits and even fashionable ideas like making dress-up dolls. Looking for something practical that’s guaranteed to impress kids of all ages? Try the colour-in trainers!

And if you’re looking for creative kits to get them exploring new craft techniques we’ve found paper quilling, origami and painting and decorative items for their room that will make them feel like proper grown-ups. Or if you want to get back to basics, the Giant Craft Box contains plenty of supplies for the ultimate crafting extravaganza. They certainly won’t get bored in the school holidays, it’s the ultimate kid’s craft kit.

So switch off the PS2 and turn off their internet connection for some fun, mindful creativity that’s perfect for giving them some crafting contentment over Christmas.
