The Best Craft Kits for Gradeschoolers

Craft kits are creative toys, customized to different curiosities. Perfect for indoor playdates, these kits keep the children engaged and provide positive stimulation. For example, some kits are specifically designed to boost cognitive skills, and some enhance problem-solving skills. Craft kits are also tailored to the developmental goals of different age groups. To know what’s ideal for your gradeschoolers, we have lined up some of the best craft kits available.

  1. Creativity for Kids: Hide & Seek Rock Painting Kit: 

    The kit has rocks that act as a canvas for your little ones and waterproof paint. The idea is to paint the rocks and then hide them in the room or lawn. The children get to play a fun game of hide-and-seek, where the seeker with most rocks found is the winner. The painted rocks can also act as personalized takeaway pieces for friends and family. The set contains non-toxic supplies and is suited for children aged 6 and above.

  2. Klutz Lego Chain Reaction Science and Building Kit: 

    The Klutz lego set comes with 33 pieces that can be designed and built into 10 different moving machines. In each machine, a small action triggers a chain of events, one bigger than the previous. The kit has a comprehensive manual for building the different structures, and once the children learn the building hacks, they can play freely and make their own structures. Fundamental ideas of science like gravity and conversion of energy can be learned through fun models. It is recommended for children above 8 years of age.
