Unique Kits for Kids that Foster Creativity

I can not, for the life of me, believe that I am posting about gifts! It doesn’t seem possible yet, however its all I can think about. If you know me, you know I try to live a simple life, void of tons of “things”. So when it comes to gifts, I try really hard to give that are homemade, sustainable or foster creativity. If you are a member of my family, at one point or another you have gotten a gift that I made with my own hands, or a kit I put together for you to make your own adventure. That is why I wanted to share some of the most unique kits for kids I found that foster creativity.

DIY Gift Kits for Kids Foster Creativity


Now, as I gathered up my favorite kits around the web, I couldn’t help but picture books that would pair perfectly with the them. Some of the books are great for parents or caregivers, others are just right for the little hands to explore. Either way, the combination of the two would make any kid happy on any occasion.

    For Christmas I made a couple of playdough kits. They didn’t have any “playdough toys” (rollers, cookie cutters etc.), but had a variety of other things for creative play (gems, rocks, dinosaurs, cars, pom poms, googly eyes, fake flowers/leaves, scissors, pipe cleaners, candles etc.)
