Searching for fun craft kits for kids this quarantine season? ClassBento’s new LiveBox feature has online workshops, DIY kits and live stream class is perfect for keeping the little ones busy during self-isolation and school holidays. In no particular order, here are 10 of our most popular kids craft packs that are ideal for getting both young children and teenagers learning a new skill whilst stuck indoors!
As far as kids craft packs go, this one is perfect for the slightly older kids looking for a challenge! Traditionally a Paint N Sip class for adults only, our online workshop is open to anyone looking to grow their artistic abilities! The best part about this workshop is that the kids will be shown every necessary step to perfecting a portrait of the family pet! Run by The Paint Bar in Brisbane, they have a wide variety of online workshops and art kits for kids available for all ages that make for a perfect family activity to enjoy together.
Koinobori - or “carp streamers” - are a Japanese decoration made and exhibited all over the country on Children’s Day, the national day of celebrating the future generation. Although we don’t have Children’s Day in Australia, making a Koinobori is too much fun to ignore and a delightfully colourful craft box for kids to sink their teeth into! Packed full with a variety of ribbons, craft paper and other exciting Konobori essentials, this is one kids craft packs that’s hard to go past.
Making a terrarium can be a very rewarding experience for adults, but it’s fair to say that the little ones may need a little more creative stimulation. Making your own fairy garden takes the standard terrarium and gives it a real shot of imagination! This kids craft pack contains not just the plants and the pots, but plasticine to build decorative toadstools and fantastical characters, and a range of pebbles and stones to add a dash of whimsical colour to the mini-magical garden! Crafting a fairy garden won’t just keep your kids busy, but this is one craft box for kids that will really ignite their imaginations and one of our most inventive rainy day activities.
Before you read any further, please be aware that although this is an online workshop, this class is only available for Sydney metro residents only. Although this is one of the kid’s craft packs that has a limited reach, this is primarily because of the kiln firing service! Not only will your craft box contain both a ceramic item of their choice, paints and crafting tools, but pick up, firing, and re-delivery is included in the price of the craft kits! Your kids can go ham on designing a mug, bowl or plate; the choice is entirely theirs!
This is one of the most versatile craft kits for kids ClassBento currently has on offer! With the craft packs containing a sea of decorative mosaic pieces, a photo frame to design on, as well as basic instructions to get them started, this is a kids craft pack of the highest creative order! You have the choice of two different online classes, both varying in mosaic styles and patterns depending on what the little ones are most interested in!
Kids often make slime by accident, and it’s gross. This exceedingly quirky workshop will show your munchkins how to make both fluffy slime and clear slime out of household products. This kids craft pack will contain a few basic ingredients, but you’ll need to supply your own shaving foam, acrylic paint and hand soap, but it’s worth it! Although this is suitable for all ages, this craft box for kids requires kids under eight to be supervised.
Learning to hand build with clay is a creative journey that kids absolutely love, and this class is no exception! Unlike pottery classes, this online workshop gives your children complete control over their imagination and the direction of what they’re making! The instructor will show the little ones a few simple techniques to get them started, but otherwise what they make is entirely up to them. Firing is optional, but not included in this craft kit unless you are Melbourne-based.
Creating pompoms is a fun and easy method of mixing up your skills with yarn, and an exciting place to start when looking at sewing kits for kids. With no needles or sharp objects required, this is one of the kids craft packs that’s ideal if you’re looking to keep the much younger kids occupied.
The zentangle method of art centres around creating easy-to-draw that intertwine and overlay to create beautiful visual effects, and a fun drawing class for both experienced and beginner drawers! Our art kits for kids come in many shapes and sizes, but this one is perfect for learning to decorate paper and card, and for kids in particular who have already shown an interest in art and painting. With the craft pack containing everything you need to start, this class is an imaginative and minimalist approach to drawing, and one of the best kid’s craft packs for creative children!
This one isn’t a craft kit for kids per se, as the only thing they’ll need to bring is themselves, and probably some water! K Pop-style choreography is incredibly fun to learn, and a clever way to keep the kids exercising if they’re stuck in self-isolation at home. Kpop teaches coordination and rhythm, as well as the discipline that accompanies mastering the routines. Learning over our live stream, our expert instructor Mitchell Yee will show the kids how to get moving and how to come up with their own choreography.
