As long time readers of Childhood 101 will know, the value of children creating is close to my heart (so much so that I wrote a book about it that you can see here). Every Christmas and birthday my girls receive art materials to encourage them to express their ideas creatively. If you know a creative kid (or even a not-so-creative-one), this list of Christmas Gift Ideas for Creative Kids features all of our favourite art supplies!
The ideas below are mostly linked to an Amazon or Etsy product link (affiliate links). These are suggestions only, to provide you with more information or a look at an item we love in our home, obviously you can shop for similar items wherever you prefer to shop.
– Gel pens
– Sketch book or sketch pad
– An art smock: I prefer washable plastic, long sleeved (with elasticised wrists) smocks
– An art easel: this KidKraft one
– Face paint crayons
– And lastly, my book, Time to Create: Hands On Explorations in Process Art for Young Children
