Paper crafting with kids can be very rewarding. There are multiple ways to explore their creativity. The first suggestion is to buy a child oriented all-inclusive kit.
- Boys seem to like the Robot Buddies Kid Card Kit. Girls seem to like the Notes of Cheer kit (see pictures below).
- If you are looking for a kit for everyone to do together, I recommend the Light the Candles kit or the Saying Thanks kit.
- If you are looking for an individual project, or one you could do with your child, Stampin’ Up also has a Celebrate Today magnetic board or a Love This Memory notebook kit.

Another way to explore their creativity is to let them stamp. Kids LOVE TO STAMP!! Here are some recommended products & stamp sets:
- Share a Milkshake stamp set, On the Farm stamp set, Taco Fiesta stamp set, On the Ocean stamp set
- Assorted white cards & envelopes are a ready-made way for you & your child to just stamp
- If you want just black ink then let your child color, I suggest Memento ink and the Brights Stampin’ Write Markers, these markers are fine point on one side & like a paint brush on the other
- If you would rather just them stamp, I suggest the Classic Assorted ink spots, 8 vibrant colors in the set
You could also make photo album or scrapbook pages! Here are some suggested products:
- If you would like to just let them stamp, get some 12″ x 12″ white or vanilla cardstock
- Some of Stampin’ Up DSP’s (designer series paper) have pages that would make great pages, some examples are: Happy Forest Friends DSP, Awash in Beauty DSP, Enjoy the Journey DSP or Rain or Shine DSP
Crafting with kids is more than an activity. An article on the Scholastic website titled How Crafting Benefits Kids of All Ages says, “From developing fine motor skills to supporting self-esteem, getting crafty has serious perks for your child”.
