There are some great art gifts for kids for all ages. I may say the art stuff that you can find nowadays on the market are pretty much ageless.
Most kids love drawing and painting, color books and generally getting messy and create their own world. Having something to color or paint is a great way for you keep your sanity during festive season. I personally always buy them something artsy during Holiday time for this reason. You can make your own art gift basket for example or you could offer something more costlier such as an art set or children painting easel.
Below are what I believe are some great gifts for art lover kids for different budgets, and hopefully get you some ideas for what to shop.
Klutz Stencil Art Book Kit
Klutz art sets and books make great gifts for any occasion. I am sure kids will love to play with Klutz Stencil Art Book Kit. I like the popular art book set that comes with 72 shapes, 8 markers and 14 sheets of stickers and the book with clear instructions from simpler designs to more intricate ones. The art book kit is recommended for kids aged 8 years and plus, but I am sure a 6 years old one can play just fun. Because of the colors, it looks more girly, though.
Art Sets For Kids
This is what my daughter wanted for Christmas. There are some great art kit sets on Amazon, from cheaper ones to more expensive ones. It is important to check what exactly the art set comes with. What I loved about this art set, Art 101 142-Piece Wood Art Set, is that it famed in a good quality wooden box, and it contained oil paintings, water color paints, sketch crayons and markers.
These types of art sets for kids are very popular gifts for Christmas and many stores will remain out of stock. This is why it is better to purchase it earlier.
Melissa Doug Deluxe Easel with Magnetic Board
Mellisa and Doug have some great art and craft kits and sets for smaller kids . Their easels are great for girls age 5 or below. The model with magnetic board is even better.
Coloring Books for Kids
Does your daughter or son are fun of Frozen or Ninja Turtles? No matter what they are really into, they can find a coloring book about it nowadays. If you plan a long trip this Holidays, a coloring book and some Crayola crayons are what you need to keep your and their sanity.
There is a craze about coloring books for adults these days , but let’s not forget that kids love coloring, particularly girls. My daughter is sour of coloring Elsa and Anna, but she does enjoy intricate adult coloring books as well. A good idea is to choose a themed coloring book about pets, flowers, popular foreign places, etc.
Art Storybooks for Kids
There are some great art books for kids. Learning different art techniques is not too difficult by kids themselves. Another idea is an art camp where they can learn various drawing and painting techniques.
Spirograph Deluxe Design Kits
This is by far the best scrap booking kits for kids. A classical toy, it has been brought back in 2012 by Kahootz toys. This is a great toy for creating unique design by combining different gears.
