Additional Craft Information:

When your kid is very young, then the mind of the little one starts absorbing new ideas and creative things very easily. In order to enhance the creative and imaginative side of the child's mind, you should motivate them to create different types of home crafts. And, in order to push your kids for more creative ideas, you need to keep them equipped with proper art and craft supplies. This kind of art and craft supply is very much important for pre-school student and day care center. With the help of proper supply, children will grow as the artist. And, maybe your kid can take up this kind of hobby as his/her profession in future. Thus, motivating them, with this kind of art and craft work, will be the best way to pull out creative talent inside your kid.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

These art and craft supplies involve drawing papers, clay, paints, crayons and many more. With the help of these materials, children can make wide range of home crafts. When you will give your child one box of clay, he/she will be energized to sculpt any mini statue or mold any structure of any animal. When at their birthday, they will be gifted with art paper, then they can create beautiful origami and paper crafts by folding it.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).


Do you think your child is more inclined to coloring? Then why don't you give him/her one canvas, paint brushes and colors? With the help of these supplies, he/she will enjoy coloring the canvas and create a great painting like a pro. You never know that this kind of landscape and flower painting can take any special place inside the museum. Thus, we can say that with the help of proper supply, your children will be able to take a pleasure of art and craft in their own way.

But before choosing any kind of supply from the market, you need to be very conscious about the quality of the product. Since, many kids have the tendency to keep the things inside the mouth, thus, you should choose harmless products. This kind of supply should be non-toxic in nature and should not be made of sharp object. Kids should be given blunt edged scissors, while they have to use it for the paper craft. All the scissors should have the protective coverings. You should keep an eye on the child, while he/she will be engaged in craft work. As child should not swallow any small product, which can choke them and cause more hazard. This way, you can help your child to go creative in a safer way.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
