What do you do with the kids since it’s summer and school isn’t taking up most of their day? I know my kids love art and buying fun kits is something that I’ve always enjoyed. Creativity for Kids has some of the most fun and accidentally educational kits that I’ve ever found.
My daughter always wanted to “art” as she used to say. Now that she’s older, she sometimes gets creative, but having a jump-start is always nice. By jump-start, I’m meaning a kit with instructions and materials. She immediately grabbed a hold of the Fairy Garden Kit and went to town painting, pouring, planting and just being her. She was so happy while intensely making a fun little fairy garden.
Other kits that are offered by Creativity for Kids include POM POM Rugs, Fairies, Paracord Bracelets, Terrariums, and so much more. They have all kinds of kits for different areas of interest. I was literally blown away when I started choosing a few kits. There is so much to choose from that whatever the interests the child, there is something there for them.
My son wanted to learn to make paracord bracelets. He started out strong, but because sometimes when my kids don’t get it the first time, they kinds throw it down and pretend they never tried it. But, with some help, we made him a great bracelet that he literally wears every day. It wasn’t hard to make at all. This was a great exercise for him to read and follow instructions.
In all these fun kits, what makes me happiest is seeing the enjoyment in my children. They are creating something from scratch (ok, with instructions and materials) but they are learning cause and effect. They are finding out that by twisting the paracord this way or that way, the know lies here or there. They are learning and not even realizing it. And when the finished product is completed, they are so proud of what they made. If the plants grow, yay…if not, there is a cute pan with fun fairies in it. It is something that my children made by themselves and they are so much better for doing it.

Because these craft kits are so much fun and would entertain many kids during the summer,
we have included them in our Summer Fun Guide.
