Gift Guide for the Little Artist

  1. The Scribbler. This book is perfect for letting the little toddler explore pencils and crayons. Perfect activity book for little ones!
  2. The “Paint In The Lines” Kid. A beautiful paint-by-numbers kit that will make any kid feel like a master painter.
  3. Artist on the Go. This is for the school doodler or the kid who loves constantly drawing. Hey, I was that kid!
  4. For the Messy Painter. These synthetic brushes are perfect for kids. They won’t make you well-up with tears if they ruin your “good brushes” :).
  5. The Traveler. Perfect little crayon travel holder for packing up in a backpack for school or to draw outside!
  6. For the Mess Maker. Paint sticks that are easy to wipe off of non-porous surfaces like glass, wood, and are fun on paper!
  7. The Math-Brained Artist. Create shapes on a geo-board using string! Sounds fun to me! Perfect for the kid who doesn’t care for drawing but loves putting on the math hat.
  8. The Non-Toxic Artist. Natural beeswax crayons! We use these and love em. My son loves this set.
  9. The Nature Lover. The perfect, interactive drawing book for nature lovers! Get them drawing leaves and flowers and scribbling all the fun things!
  10. The Project Lover. A box of beeswax and a kit for making candles! How fun! The perfect activity for a kid who loves a good craft.
