Kids Arts & Crafts

Help your child tap into their imagination with kids' arts and crafts supplies. Creative play helps children understand and express their feelings while developing an appreciation for subjects such as music, reading, visual and performing arts. Staples carries a wide assortment of toys, games and art kits from companies such as Melissa and Doug, Seedling and Educational Insights that kids of all ages are sure to enjoy as they learn and grow.

Coloring and Activity Books Offer All-Ages Fun
You'll find a wide selection of coloring, sticker and activity books to engage children young and old. Aspiring artists can practice hand lettering skills and decorate journal pages with a variety of whimsical rubber stamp designs. Little hands love to peel and stick adorable critters into books and color images of favorite characters like Barbie and Batman. Several books show readers how to make felted animals, assemble pipe cleaner art and craft objects straight out of a storybook.

Encourage Creative Expression with Kids' Art Easels and Painting Supplies
A blank canvas provides a fresh opportunity to paint a picture only the mind can see, and easels are the perfect tool for propping them up. Artist easels are easy to set up in any classroom, daycare facility or family room for anytime enjoyment, and many fold up for convenient storage between uses. Select kids' art easels offer a flexible two-sided design featuring a chalkboard on one side and a dry-erase board on the other with storage trays to hold essential coloring supplies. Combined with poster paints, colored pencils, giant pads of paper and a kid-sized smock, these creative products keep children occupied for hours as they experiment with a variety of art mediums.

Kids' Arts and Crafts Help Children Develop New Talents and Interests
Boys and girls can hone their fine motor skills while working on a new hobby. Beading kits let kids create unique pieces of jewelry while fashion design sets help budding seamstresses learn to sew doll-sized clothing. Excavation tools, museum crafts and fossil casting kits help young explorers develop their curiosity about the world around them. Kids with an interest in all things winged or wheeled can try their hand at painting and assembling toy planes, rescue vehicles and balloon-powered rockets.

Which Activities Are Safe for Kids Under the Age of Four?
Many toddlers and preschool aged kids enjoy one-on-one interaction with parents. Sticker books, giant activity pads, floor puzzles, play masks and crown decorating crafts offer creative experiences both little ones and adults get into, most requiring very little assembly and minimal clean-up. Parent-child playtime also provides an opportunity for adults to check for small parts that may pose choking hazards during use.

When you're entertaining a group of youngsters, modeling and foam clay, fishing games and fantasy story crafts offer hours of safe and imaginative peer group play.

Which Arts and Crafts Products Are Popular With Pre-Teens?
Pre-teens enjoy art journals, knitting and jewelry-making crafts, along with rubber stamping and model assembly kits. Other excellent gift ideas include science and nature discovery kits, role-playing game figurines and printmaking tools.

Are Coloring and Painting Products Non-Toxic?
Most paints, crayons and other child-oriented art supplies are certified non-toxic. Before making a purchase, carefully review online product information and check the packaging to ensure items are suitable for all ages.
