Can you guess which Disney Pixar movies each of these posters represents? I’m partial to the Wall-E one, but that’s just my insatiable love for robots. From Poster Explosion on Etsy.
The perfect kit for your teenager who wants to check out screen printing. This comes with everything you need, including a DVD. Maybe you can entice them to make a “#1 mom” t-shirt for you. Speedball screen printing kit.
Dude. I think every kid should learn to sew and knit, whether boy or girl. This is a great little set, with a pretty snazzy carrying case, if I do say so myself. Sewing kit from Oompa Toys.
I’ve written about this book before, because I am such a fan. And this is the updated version. Woot! I think we as adults understand the intent behind it, and our cynicism keeps us from unleashing on it. Kids, however, given the opportunity to completely go postal on a brand new book, will do so with gleeful abandon. How can you not have fun with a book that tells you to poke it with a pencil and jump up and down on it? Wreck This Journal.
People rave about the quality of these pens, so if you have a teenager into manga or comic art, I would try these. There’s something I don’t entirely understand about the difference between pens with regular nibs and copic pens, like these, but you can bet there’ll be a post on these at some point…
This gorgeous little rattle is sure to impart creative powers onto any baby who drools on it. From WindfallBoutique on Etsy.
Oh. My. Have you ever seen anything as adorable as this? Because I haven’t; it’s wonderful. It’s a collage kit for little ones. Directions are given as pictures, so pre-readers can follow along, and they can choose from a mouse, a bear, a cat, or a rabbit! (Look at those little socks on that cat.) Djeco collages for little ones from Oompa Toys.
The sooner you embrace the fact that your kid needs an easel, the better. Clear out some space somewhere and set this puppy up. We had this one when Fen was little, and it was one of her most favorite things ever. By Melissa and Doug.
These books are always fun. Kids will enjoy doing these for much longer than they let on, so feel free to buy it for your 18 year old. Okay, maybe it’s better suited for the 6-10 set, but don’t tell me you don’t want to make one of those caterpillars on the cover. Funprint Drawing Book.
I felt compelled to add in Old Mr. Potato Head, the original make-your-own creature item. Creativity abounds when children are let loose on this fellow. Mr. Potato Head
