When I started thinking about gifts for my boys, I knew I needed to get them some arts and craft supplies. My boys absolutely love to create, and having supplies on hand is a great way to help your kids be creative. We go through art supplies super quickly, so making a DIY Craft Kit is perfect for containing craft supplies, taking them to the park or on a road trip, and just organizing your kids’ craft items. It makes a great gift or you can just make one just because you want to make one!

This one is a really quick and easy gift – and can also be inexpensive!
Suggested supplies for a DIY craft kit for kids:
- plastic bin
- pipe cleaners
- pom poms
- washi tape
- fun hole punches (using discretion to make sure the child is old enough for these, of course)
When looking for supplies for a Craft Kit, try the Target dollar spot, dollar stores, or thrift shops. I also dug through my supplies from my wannabe-scrapbooker days and found some cool shaped hole punches and different colors of cardstock that I had but haven’t used in years.
I like this one with an attached lid, because then it can’t get lost. And in my house, it definitely would get lost. You could even paint your child’s name on top to personalize it!
You could get super creative with this Craft Kit, depending on what kind of art your littles like to do. Think: paint and paint brushes, decorative edge scissors, stamps and ink pads, yarn, glue, etc. You could make themed craft kits, kits for different ages, kits based on interest, etc. There are so many options!
