Make an art kit for kids and keep them busy all year round! A great boredom buster that’s perfect for rainy days! Here are ideas for lots of awesome supplies hand-picked for little artists! Check it out!
If you’re looking for something fun to do for your kids this summer, then look no further. I’m all for making our lives as easy as possible and, of course, keeping things organized. This quick & easy Art Kit for Kids is a great way to get the kiddos on the right track to being creative and of course having lots of fun in the process.
Art Kit for Kids
One of the best ways I’ve found to do that is to make “kits” of things that we use together on a regular basis. Call it a “mom hack,” if you will. For the little guy and I, that means all things art and craft supplies. No worries, though.
This wonderful art kit that we put together is the absolute best boredom buster I’ve ever found. If your day is kind of out of control and you just need five minutes to sit down and drink your coffee, this is the solution for you.
Is it raining and there’s for sure no chance of going outside? Art kit to the rescue! Grab it and get creative.

I’m sure it isn’t going to come as a surprise to anyone then that I’ve been wanting to put together an art kit for kids, especially now that the little guy is getting older and we’re starting to be able to do some craft activities.
Not too long ago, I purchased the 101 Kid’s Activities* book for inspiration. Love this book! So many awesome ideas all in one place. Definitely check it out!
These kinds of things will always be a work in progress. I started with just a few things, but you could definitely add as much or as little as you want. Keep reading to find out what we put in our art kit to get us started as well as a list of a few more ideas.
Here’s a list of what we’re starting out with. As the little guy gets older, we’ll definitely add more, but this should be enough to get us through this summer. I might grab some finger paint the next time I’m at the craft store, but otherwise I think we’re good.
Keep in mind that all kiddos do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
Craft Supplies for Kids
The container is just one I had lying around the house. I keep just about every container we end up with. Eventually, I manage to find another use for them. There are so many things that you could add to your art kit. Here are a few more ideas:
- Fabric Scraps*
- Craft Foam*
- Craft Sticks*
- Kraft Paper Roll*
This would also make a great gift for someone with younger kiddos. It was so quick and easy to put together. And no worries, I”ll definitely be sharing a few of our projects throughout the summer as well.
