When it comes to gift giving, for my own children or for others, I am always on the hunt for items that spark creativity and ignite imagination. Whether it be building, painting, crafting or sculpting I have found that children always prefer toys that allow them to create over toys that require they just be passive bystanders. Today I am sharing my favorite non-toy gift ideas for your creative child.
Creative Gifts for Artsy Kids
My oldest child is a maker. She is most content when she is engrossed in creating.
It’s like the entire world slips away and she is in her element.
I know she is not alone – you are probably reading this post because your kiddo is obsessed with all things arts and crafts too.
While simple paints and crayons may keep them happy for a while, as their skills and imaginations grow they seek new ways to express their creativity.
