Art Kits for Kids
There are many art kits available around you at various stationery stores as well as online stores. But most of them are just attractive boxes with a few coloring essentials packed. For a kid to truly unleash his or her imagination on the paper, you need to provide the kid with a lot of choices. There are several art materials that seem to be useless to general artists but are essential for an art kit of a kid. For kids to be able to experiment and choose, all these art materials are greatly significant.
Art Supplies for Toddlers Checklist
So, here is the list of all the art materials that should essentially be present in an art kit for young children. You may add a few more to the collection too.
Kids surely can be messy with these water colors but they are fun. These enable kids to use their color dipped fingers to draw and color. Also, all these water colors are washable and so you do not have to worry about any of those staining your walls or furniture.
Bio Face Paint Colors:
These are for kids as well as adults who wish to entertain their kids and make them more cheerful. These bio-based paints are skin friendly and let you paint on skin. It is really a good idea while making finger cartoon characters.
This is my personal favorite. Why? Because it even turns adults into kids. You can make great items and watch the kids marvel. The dough is what keeps kids engaged for hours.
Marker pens are a bit costly but are totally worth the money. If you are too concerned about kids drawing on the walls, there are even washable marker pens available. There are so many options you can choose from - skinny, thick, round tipped, angular tipped, sharpie markers etc.
Glitter Pens and Glitter:
These materials literally add shine to your toddler’s art. Kids are always fascinated by shiny objects and it would be marvelously fun for them to be able to create glittering pieces of art.
Coloured paper is for satisfying the collage making needs of young kids. Creatively cutting and creating designs is another added advantage of these papers. Above all, origami is something that kids love and these papers are a must for that.
Glue and Kid Friendly Scissors:
You need kid friendly scissors obviously as you do not want your kids to get hurt. Also, a glue stick which is non-sticky is preferable as kids tend to create a lot of mess while using glue and it would only add up to the mess if the glue is sticky and is all over the place.
There is no need to even explain the significance of this art item. All know how much kids love a box of crayons and how they use it to color the white paper with their imagination. Crayons are many different types of oil pastels, wax and much more. Take your pick or let your kids experiment with all of those.
All these are the basic need of any art kit you buy for a kid. In case you are planning to get an art kit online, make sure you check the contents of the kit first. Treat this list as a checklist and make sure all of these are present.
