10 Crafty Gifts for Kids under $20
1. Washi tape
Kids love tape. All ages, all kinds of tape, add in cute designs and colors and you really can’t go wrong! Both my kids go crazy for washi tape.
My daughter loves to put washi tape on her drawings, she makes cards and postcards with washi tape and uses it for making cardboard sculptures.
This set is cute and has a lot of variety.
Another cute set with gold foil.
2. Stamps and ink
Stamping is so fun for kids of all ages! Sometimes I roll out paper over our dining room table, put out different stamps and ink colors and let them create and have fun.
This will keep both my kids busy while I start dinner (and sometimes even finish making it!).
This animal set looks fun!
This is such an adorable set with unicorns!
3. Watercolor pencils
If your kids have never tried watercolor pencils (or crayons) before, they are a must-try! You draw a picture with the pencil crayons and then using a brush and water, paint your picture.
The results are pretty cool and kids love exploring and creating with them!
This set comes with watercolor paper and a brush.
Watercolor crayons are also fun to try, especially for younger kids.
Don’t forget to get a pad of real watercolor paper! It really makes a difference in how their paintings will turn out, the colors are brighter and the watercolors soak into the paper creating beautiful designs.
You can also get blank watercolor paper cards & envelopes for your kids to make their own cards for any occasion.
4. Colorful gel pens
Give my daughter a set of colorful gel pens and off she goes to draw and create! They are always a hit and make a great stocking stuffer.
This set includes glitter and neon gel pens!
5. Decorative edged scissors
It’s always fun to experiment and create with fancy scissors!
6. Glitter glue
I think my son’s most favorite craft supply is glitter glue! He thinks it’s just the most fun thing to use, he wants to put it on everything.
You can’t go wrong with glitter glue, in my son’s opinion.
I love all the colors in this set.
This glue is perfect for making slime!
7. Beads and string
There is just something about stringing beads that really keeps my kids calm and focused!
Both my kids love stringing beads, my 7-year-old daughter especially loves making necklaces and bracelets and will sit down in an afternoon and make jewelry for everyone and anyone that she can think of.
My son loves to string beads on pipe cleaners, which is nice because when he is finished I just take off the beads and put them away, so we can reuse them again.
Lots of colorful beads and jewelry making supplies in this set.
This is a great wooden bead set.
9. Colorful cardstock
My kids love using colorful and decorative scrapbook paper to craft with! There are so many fun patterned papers and colors that kids can get creative with.
I love how bright and colorful this set is!
Lots of fun patterns in this set.
This Kawaii paper pad is just adorable!
Stencils are so fun for kids to use and draw with! I find that simple stencils work the best, if they are too complicated my kids get frustrated.
This is a great set that comes with markers and paper.
This stencil kit looks great and comes with a book for kids to make their creations.
My daughter loves using this type of fashion stencil book! She has several of these types and uses them all the time.
This set is smaller and great for on the go.
