How to Shop for Arts, Crafts & Activity Toys

Today's Kids often spend too much time on screens and parents are looking for off screen toy ideas that are creative and fun. Keep your kids engaged while building hand eye coordination and encouraging creativity with a plethora of arts and crafts for kids that are perfect for a party, a rainy day, or any child who enjoys being creative.

There are so many types of toys to choose from in the Arts & Crafts category. There's coloring, drawing, painting, stamping, crafty projects, plus a whole lot more that can keep kids entertained for hours.

Here are some things to consider when selecting these toys. As with all toys, it starts with your child's individual interests. If your child likes a guided project versus something open-ended, consider many of the various craft kits available. For open-ended creativity, there are many basic art supplies at a variety of price points—from basics to artist quality.

For multiple kids, play dates or birthday party ideas, there are many craft kits that include enough materials for several kids to play. These are lots of fun, and can be a great value.

Of course, one thing that comes with Arts & Crafts is some amount of mess. Setting up dedicated spaces for this kind of play can be great, or putting down protective coverings on the kitchen table. Fortunately, though, manufacturers are keenly aware of families' concerns about mess and take that into consideration when making project kits.

Finally, you'll want to consider levels of complexity. Will your child or kids need parental supervision or help in completing the craft? Are the instructions clear or confusing for a child?

TTPM Arts & Crafts category features toys from leading brands like Crayola, Cra-Z-Art, Alex Toys, Faber-Castell, Klutz and Rose Art. Crayola has been a long time leader in this category especially with their crayons and markers. Color Wonder has been a favorite of parents and kids for mess free coloring. Crayola has also had popular toys with Crayola Marker Maker and the Crayola Crayon Maker. When you think Crayola, its often tough to go wrong.

Alex Toys is a company that has a long-standing reputation of quality Arts & Craft toys. If you can think of a type of craft, Alex probably makes it as they manufacture over 1,000 different products in this category.

And then there are classics. Do you remember Shrinky Dinks? Shrinky Dinks is still popular today, and has lead to a multitude of off shots. There are now Craft Ovens that you can make and design your own porcelain trinkets as well as pottery wheels that may bring back memories of the movie Ghost. There are many easels that have multiple activities that make these toys much more than coloring stations. You can color and create your own umbrella or clutch. Let's not forget jewelry, in which there are hundreds of toys to choose from. No matter the activity you're looking for a child, there's probably a kit for it. Scroll back up to get started watching videos and finding great kits and products for your kids.

Arts & Crafts for kids will inspire your children to be creative and explore their artistic side and will allow them to stretch their imagination, express themselves, and develop self-confidence, while creating masterpieces they can be proud of.
