21 items

Art and crafts are about getting creative and making something unique with your own two hands. It can be a fun activity for kids, teens, or adults to do alone or in groups. Whether you're creating a puppet, painting pottery, using a sewing machine, or making crafts like door signs, solar systems or tie-dye scrunchies, there are kits in our range that can help! There is something special about the act of bringing your ideas to life. With crafts, you can express yourself and learn new skills while having fun. Plus, it doesn't require expensive supplies — all you need are some materials.
