EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Creativity for Kids Camp Crafts Kit from Faber-Castell is a craft kit packed with 12 different types of outdoor-inspired crafts. Crafts can be completed solo or with a group of friends. Camp Crafts are great for individual craft or with a group of friends. 

Here's a list of the crafts you can make:

  • 4 painted rocks
  • 2 picture frames
  • 1 clay pinch pot
  • 2 journey sticks
  • 1 wind chime 
  • 2 bracelets

There are enough supplies included to complete every one of these activities, including scissors, faux leaves, paint, air-dry clay for the pinch pot, paint brushes (2), glue, cotton cord, wooden beads, and chimes. The instructions guide also features a built-in ruler to make measuring out your supplies really easy to do. 

The instructions for each craft are also straight forward and give guidance while still allowing kids to make each item their own. For example, kids can paint the journey sticks any way they please, adding leaves and feathers, etc. to further customize.

Is It Fun?

This is the kind of craft kit in which everything takes little time to do but offer lots of repeat play value, both in terms of completing multiple craft projects over time as well as using the crafts for imaginative play post-build. We also like that kids can work on different types of craft projects together at once. 

Who It’s For

The Creativity for Kids Camp Crafts Kit is from Faber-Castell and it's for ages 7 and up. It will appeal to families looking for a multi-day, multi-child craft kit as well as craft projects that spur future outdoor and imaginative play. This kit is also a good option for kids that maybe have friends or older siblings away at camp doing similar crafts as well as for for parties or rainy day camp-ins at the grandparents' house.

We also think because this kit is fairly open-ended, it can age down a bit for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Most of the crafts do require the use of the paint at some point so you'll definitely want to prep a work space and put on some paint-friendly clothes. As noted in the instructions, this paint can stain fabrics. 

Also be sure to stir the paint a bit before use as it can sometimes settle. Once painted, allow time for your pieces to dry before assembling.
