If you love supporting crafty individuals then you’ll be no stranger to the world of Etsy.

But searching for something like “kids craft kit” produces over 40,000 hits – for US alone. And there is a great range to be found; from kits that are put together with just household items, to those that look impossible for kids to even attempt. So… I have done the sifting for you! I’ve included as big a range in crafts as I can find – something to suit all tastes and abilities – but in general I’m aiming at a 4-7 year old age group. Although most kits are from the US, I’ve included some from other countries such as the UK, Portugal, and Australia because the shipping rates are really very reasonable. Not that I want to assume that all my readers live in the US because I know that isn’t true!

I would like to add that although I trust and enjoy Etsy, I have not personally sampled these kits. But after a lot of research these are the ones I *really* want to try. They all offer something a little different, and most of them include materials and/or instructions  that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to do for yourself.

So grab a coffee (or glass of wine?) and browse through my suggestions. I know you’ll find something you love!
