Checklist For Craft Supplies For Children

  • You should consider the manufacturer’s instructions regarding age. For children under the age of 3, for example, there should be no small parts, otherwise, there is a risk of suffocation.
  • In addition, you should be aware of the risk of injury from scissors, saws, knives, etc. Accordingly, these should only be used from the age of 4. Special caution applies to soldering stations.
  • With all kinds of craft supplies, your child should be supervised to avoid injury. Tinkering is more fun in the company anyway.
  • You can recognize material that is free of harmful substances by the test mark, e.g. Stiftung Warentest.
  • Many manufacturers offer different materials. These include beads, clay cardboard, pencils, felt, and pipe cleaners.
  • Additional equipment in the form of devices for batting is of course necessary. Above all, scissors and glue should not be missing. If your child is a talented craftsman and already a little older, knives or soldering stations can be added. Some suppliers include some handicraft tools.
  • The more materials a set contains, the more variety and creativity your child will have. However, 2-4 materials are sufficient for toddlers, otherwise, they may become overwhelmed.
  • It makes sense to choose a craft box with compartments or several compartments. This ensures order and faster finding of materials.

FAQ Craft Accessories For Children

What can you do with children?

There are incredibly many craft ideas, for older children (because: Verschluckungsgefah!) Beads and jewelry are a great idea. The finished jewelry can also provide pride and joy after the craft activity. In our product recommendations, we have compiled great bead sets and other crafting materials and accessories.

Why is crafting important for children?

Crafting not only encourages imagination and creativity, but it can also boost self-esteem or confidence. Children learn that they can create things. Furthermore, observation skills, fine motor skills and concentration are trained.

From when to tinker?

Even toddlers enjoy doing crafts together. It is important to use safe materials, to guide and supervise the child and, if necessary, to help out or take over dangerous or too difficult tasks as an adult.
