Crafting with toddlers and preschoolers requires creative activities for kids that are not only simple but also safe and engaging. So let’s dive deep into the list of easy crafts for kids:

Foam Sticker Art

As a parent, you might be afraid of cleaning the mess kids leave behind after art projects. But now you have the perfect kid’s game available on Skillmatics - Foam Sticker Art, a mess-free game that keeps children hooked while also honing their brain functions.

The Foam Sticker Art collection at Skillmatics is the right tool to let your child's imagination run wild. The sticker art collection features options such as Amazing Animals, Under the Ocean, and Unicorns & Princesses. You can pick one or two or the Mega Combo (a combination of all the sticker art games in this collection) to keep your child involved in some of the most creative activities for kids.

All of the games under this category/collection feature 800+ eye-catching foam stickers, 1 instruction manual and 6 picture boards. No matter which game you pick for your little one, he/she has all the options to decorate the objects drawn inside the way they want. They can be as creative as they want. They can make the animals or cartoon characters in the picture boards as colourful as they please. There’s no end to it or no limit to restrict their imaginative minds. It’s such a fun, durable and portable game that keeps kids occupied at home or on the go.

Even our verified customers, Adam and Reese readily agree to the uniqueness, portability, ease, and engagement level of the game.

Foil Art

Another mess-free, creative, fun game that should be in your arsenal to keep your little one occupied with fun, fine motor skills-boosting activities is the Foil Art game collection of Skillmatics.

The game is not just a pile of aluminium foil! A lot goes into this 5-minute craft for kids. With a combination of 100 colourful foil sheets, googly eyes, 10 picture canvases and 10 foam sticker sheets or 250+ foam stickers, it's a game that makes your kids kick up their heels.

However, if all these kits confuse you or the little one, we have a detailed guide on how to play it. No need to scratch your head! The entire game is a simple three-step process but the opportunities are endless.

The availability of hundreds of stickers lets your little one embellish the picture canvases with as many variations of animals, objects or aliens as possible.

It’s a perfect game to keep the little ones entertained without strict parental supervision. Your kids can enjoy their playtime with complete freedom. Just let them pick their favourite one among the space-themed kit, the animal-themed kit, the dinosaur-themed kit, the bugs & butterfly-themed one, the dress-up-themed kit, or the unicorn & princess-themed kit. We also have a Mega Bundle to let them enjoy the experience of playing with all of the foil art kits in Skillmatics’ collection.

Magnetic Art

Skillmatics’ collection of mess-free art extends to this magnetic art combo, Dot It with Magnets. This combination of two sets of magnetic art kits comes with inspiration guides to let your kids create designs they are proud of. Along with inspiration guides, the kits also contain 600+ coloured magnetic dots, 2 imagination boards, and 10 pictures.

The combo kit game covers two themes - Animal Planet and unicorns & princesses. But being a theme-based game in no way limits kids’ ingenuity. As it’s a repeatable magnetic art activity, you can turn the same animal or princess into magnetic masterpieces as many times as you want.

No hassle of cutting out shapes from magnetic sheets or struggling with storage. This art kit comes with a magnetic dot storage box where children can keep the magnets safe. Just take ideas from the pictures and create the same on the blank board using the magnetic dots.

Encourage the children to include this game in their playtime and sharpen their language skills, hand-eye coordination and spatial skills.
