The Best Craft Kits for Tweens from Sewing to Sculpting (2022)

Stave off boredom in your tweens with craft kits! We know the tween ages are not an easy time. They’re wanting to discover independence and socialize with their friends, which can make it difficult to keep them happy at home and content with family time. Craft kits can offer some assistance on both fronts.

A fun surprise to find in the mail each month, art kits and fun craft projects are a great way to keep hands and minds occupied and engaged. In fact, arts & crafts provide an opportunity to support their independence or create some bonding time by crafting together. (Not to mention, they make a truly epic gift idea.)
