Creative kits are a great way to let kids immerse themselves in different art forms and get their creative juices flowing. They are useful tools in exploring kids’ creativity and discovering their interest in one form of art or another. It may feel more natural to some children to use colors and brushes, while other may prefer working with clay. Creative kits for kids provide all materials for one or more masterpieces.
Melissa & Dough. Price: $15.99
This kit includes five easy-grip, wooden stamping cubes, three rolling pins, four modeling dough tubs with molding lids and a patterned wheel press. Kids will be able to explore different textures, combine colors and shape the dough into anything they want.
Eco-Kids. Price: $15.89
Made in the USA, from non toxic, natural ingredients, the Eco-Dough is not only soft to play with but also has a nice aroma of rosemary. My kids love their Play-Doh but whenever it is accidentally left out of the container overnight and I just have to through it away. This will never happen with Eco-Dough. Just add a few drops of olive oil and you’ll have it forever.
