Do you have a child who can’t get enough arts and crafts supplies and is always creating something? Here are some ideas for Christmas gifts that will keep their creative juices flowing.

Beneath the Swirling Sky

This new release from homeschool mom and author Carolyn Leiloglou is the perfect book for your artistic late elementary and tween readers. It explores themes of creativity and adventure through the story of Vincent, a talented boy who has written off art completely after a disappointing experience. When Vincent learns that he is one of the last of the Restorationists, a secret society with the power to travel through paintings, Vincent discovers that the world needs his gifts and his art. Great as a family read-aloud too!

Paint Your Own Holiday Horse Ornament

Decorate your very own Breyer horse ornaments to look like your favorite equine friend! Includes horse and foal ornaments, paints and brush, stickers and stencils.

Stained Glass Art

These beautiful stained glass art kits from Melissa & Doug are a wonderful project for your artistic child.

Art Supplies

Art supplies are a great consumable gift that inspires hours of creative play. Christmas gifts are a great place to splurge on unique or unusual supplies that you wouldn’t ordinarily stock. And from colored pencils to sidewalk chalk to modeling clay, they often make the perfect stocking stuffers!

Mini Pompom Pets Kit

This kit includes everything you’ll need to make over 20 of these adorable fuzzy friends.

A Literary Coloring Book

Your child can color their own Beatrix Potter story or scene from the Chronicles of Narnia with these coloring books inspired by great works of literature.

An Alphabet Stamp Kit

With sturdy wooden stamps for every letter of the alphabet in both upper case and lower case as well as a four color stamp pad, your child will be able to make all kinds of fun messages and cards.

Sewing School

If your child wants to learn to sew, this is the book you need! Written at a 2nd grade reading level with no prior knowledge of sewing assumed, it gives step-by-step instructions and photos to help you complete 21 hand-sewing projects of increasing difficulty including a pillow, a blanket, a wallet, and an apron. Once you’ve mastered the basics of sewing by hand, you’re ready to learn about the endless possibilities of machine sewing, you can grab Sewing School 2 for even more projects.

Window Markers

These make another great stocking stuffer. You can even use them to add a bit of novelty to your homeschool day. Just write your spelling words or math problems on the window instead of on paper!
