It’s the holidays and your kids are getting bored and anxious at home with nothing much to do. At the same time, you are getting even more anxious wondering how to keep your child occupied and make him do something constructive at the same time. Something that is not only fun for him, but also an educational experience! Yes there are summer camps and craft camps that crop up every time the holidays hit the town, but some are not really worth the while and others are a big dig into the pockets.

It is best to invest this money into a craft kit that will keep your child occupied and also help him get creative. Some of these kits are simple, but the simpler they are, more room for getting inventive and let the imagination go wild. Not only so these kits help the child to grow his imagination, but these also last long so he can play with it and be creative whenever he feels like, and not only during the holidays.

Here we give you a list of the best craft kits in the market today.

Why we like it: This one is basically a water doodle mat. The kit comes with a water pen and a painting pad. The painting pad has various pictures on them which your kids can color and paint on using the water pen. There are different kits available that differ in the theme of the painting pad and the color of the pen. What you do with it is essentially fill the pen with water, normal tap water, and let your kids doodle, color, and paint on the water pad. This is ideal for toddlers just learning to hold a pen and start coloring. Since the pen is filled with only water, you don’t really have to worry about the child making a mess writing on clothes and walls. It is also safe to use since there is no harmful ink involved. The pad is reusable as the paint vanishes once the water is dry. This particular one is a fairy tale themed coloring pad. It also includes a search and find activity within its pages.

Why we like it: This is another pen activity. This one is again simple; it includes scratch notes and a wooden pen. What your child does is scratch on the scratch notes with the pen to reveal luminous colors while creating beautiful designs. The notes though, are one time use only. You cannot reuse it once it has been scratched. The notes come with a black coating that gets scratched off in the pattern of the doodle that your child draws using the wooden pen. Once scratched, the pattern reveals glowing colors underneath. There is nothing more a kid enjoys than scratching on surfaces. This is a great way to do it and get creative out of it.
