Stencils are a great option for children’s art projects. They give young children a simple way to create a range of interesting and unique drawings as they sit down to trace and color in different shapes. With this set, children are exposed to over 300 different designs featuring everything from the alphabet and geometric shapes to different kinds of animals, dinosaurs and much more. One of the things we love about stencils is how they can help children with the development of their fine motor skills as they use pens or pencils to create their designs. The stencils in this set are made from BPA-free plastic. It is recommended for children ages 4 and up.

Building a terrarium is a great way to teach children over 5 about the basics of science and plant life cycles. With this kit, children receive a plastic jar, lid, organic chia and wheatgrass seeds, potting mix and decorative items such as figurines and river stones. Kids will have fun assembling the terrarium; however, the real fun comes afterward when they get to watch the plants spring to life in as little as three to four days. This is an especially great option for parents wanting to encourage creativity while also stimulating an interest in science.

Expert Commentary

“Completing a craft is not just a one-time activity. Kids can make projects that they can return to and admire — or even give as a gift to a loved one. These projects will allow your child to put all their artistic and creative skills together to create something long-lasting.”
