Card Making Kits for Kids

When I started up my Etsy shop, one of the things I knew I wanted to sell was creativity kits for kids. I did some research and there are very few being sold on Etsy so I thought it would be a unique item for my shop. I have worked with children all my life and now with two of my own, fostering their creative expression is very important to me. Art is such a wonderful medium for children! Currently I have card making kits in my shop both for girls and boys, because boys love to craft too! :)

My shop has been open a little over a month now and is doing well. I have sold three of these kits already and have gotten great feedback on them. Also, my card making kits for kids have been featured on Indie Spotting HERE and most recently on lilacpop.blogspot.com.

Here is my kit designed especially with a boy in mind:
Here is my current girl kit:
These kits are filled with plenty of ribbon, buttons, sentiments, patterned paper and more for creating 10 cards, which are also included along with the envelopes. To see detailed pictures of what I put inside these kits visit my Etsy shop and click on one of the card kit listings. Even though I share my supplies with my oldest son all the time, he is begging me to make one of these kits just for him! :) Which I definitely plan to do soon! The nice thing about these kits is that I can really customize them depending on a customer's needs. I can create a kit geared more for a pre-teen/teenager or a child as young as 5, a boy or a girl, and I can customize the colors/pattern on the tin too.

And I have even come up with a smaller travel size version too!


Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to! More creativity kits are in the works!

Have a wonderful day!
