12 Engaging Craft Kits for Toddlers (Ages 1-4)

Toddlers have plenty of energy, but when left to their own devices, they are prone to using that energy for destructive rather than constructive purposes. That’s a good thing though, because as caregivers, there’s plenty of opportunity to steer their boundless energy into projects that are all about making and creating!

Arts & crafts provide a great way to channel this energy into working with their hands, fine-tuning their motor skills and exploring their imaginations with colorful, hands-on activities. Craft kits for toddlers are great for rainy days, unique gift ideas, or a creative way to limit screen time.

Monthly craft kits offer even more than just fun crafts. They make craft time with your little ones stress-free, allowing you to save precious time by getting directly to the project. To point you in the right direction, we’ve put together a list of craft kits that are great for the toddlers in your life.
