Super cool craft gifts for kids who should have their own Etsy shops by now


Art and Craft Gifts for Kids: Children’s weaving loom kit

We have a soft spot for crafty kids and therefore, for craft gifts for crafty kids. Whether they love doodling, painting, weaving, sewing, or pretty much anything they can do with their hands, we’ve tried to look for gift ideas beyond coloring books and the same old kits you see everywhere. What’s really special is that these craft gifts know no gender. Or age. In fact, we imagine a few adults in the house might want a shot at some of these cool gift ideas too.

All gifts have been editorially determined by our staff, there is no compensation in exchange for picks. CMP is an rstyle and Amazon affiliate. Discount codes expire 12/31/15.
