Want a cheap fun gift for kids? Give them craft and art supplies!

Rather than buying some overpriced craft kit, try putting together a box of supplies.

Here are 5 reasons why it’s better:

1. Various supplies make it more open ended for the kids to decide what to make.

2. Open-ended can lead to more process art. This inspires more creativity and imagination.

3. Cheaper

4. More fun and builds confidence for kids

5. Can support hours of entertainment
