If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.
Felt Rainbow Busy Bag – Play Create Explore
Felt is a must-have for any crafty child. It’s durable, glue-able, sew-able, and it can even temporarily stick to itself like Velcro! Create sewing cards with felt shapes and a hole punch, make a puzzle, and felt shapes make the easy busy bags and quiet books.
No Sew Tooth Fairy Pillow – Think Crafts
If your child is old enough to use a glue gun, help them make this no sew pillow. This one is perfect for stashing freshly lost teeth, but you can always customize the shape to fit your child’s décor taste. Younger kids can have fun creating their own pillows with fabric paint or markers, and you can put the pillow together for them.
