This post was inspired by some information exchanged between me and my friend Sirisha.
It’s soon going to be Christmas time and that means holidays. Time for some great quality time with our kids and also time for gifting. Here’s something which can add to your ideas, if you are planning to gift your child a craft kit, complete with all essentials needed for a variety of craft activities.
I am going to fill this post with pictures so that you will be able to get a more clear “picture” 😉 of what your special box should consist of.
I am not particularly mentioning logical points for each item. A few common points would be : –
#If there are really small pieces like beads, buttons or sequences, use adult supervision while using them with very small kids.
#Glue and cello tapes should be used only on craft materials and not on skin or hair. (I do like to pull off the fevicol on my hands once it dries up!)
#Pipecleaners or sticks could be dangerous if poked in the eyes.
CRAFT ESSENTIALS FOR A CHILD’s CRAFT BOX.
A Variety of papers
Coloured card paper bundles A4 size
Patterned card paper bundles with different designs A4 size
Other different papers like shiny or glittery papers and corrugated sheets in A4 size
Glue – Fevicol is my most favorite. Gluetack is for reusable sticking activity. I use it to stick our photos on cupboards and fridge. It leaves no marks on removal.
Cello tape. Scotch tape is my favorite as it causes no damage to walls, books or any other surfaces.
Double sided tape.
Beads, sequences, Embellishments, Pompoms and Buttons
Threads and Ribbons
Again a wide variety item. Collect as per availability.
Foam Sheets Mixed colors in A4 size
Also available now are glitter foam sheets which are shiny.
Felt sheets in mixed colors in A4 size.
Any and every sticker can be put to use in some way 🙂
Some more items could be added like sketch pens, googly eyes, play dough clay and ice cream sticks.
Let me stop here before my list becomes unending.
Hope you will be able to find most of these items to make your very own Craft kit.
