Best Art Kits and On-the-Go (Mess Free!) Fun for Little Artists

I love fostering a little creative person’s mind and know that not much is needed to keep a little one creative! But I also know that sometimes the hardest part is thinking of what to get and how to stay relatively mess-free while on-the-go.

So after lots of trial and error and major experimenting on our end, here’s my list of favorite art supplies for budding artists:

  1. I love Alex brand craft kits for a great gifts. They are aged appropriately and perfect for even the youngest artists (with a bit of adult help).

2. We LOVE Kid Made Modern (literally everything they make!) in our house. These kits are well curated and full of fun ideas for little creatives.

3. Mess free art on-the-go? It’s not impossible. These little scratch off books are perfect for travel or for taking a young artist to a quiet place! Trust me, it really works!

4. Just add water. That’s it! And kids LOVE LOVE LOVE these. Seriously so much fun and I have even seen an adult enjoying themselves while waiting for brunch on this one.

5. Art on the go! This pencil case / carry-all is perfect for taking art supplies out on the town in a relatively easy manner. And it helps a little artist to feel responsible for their supplies and take pride in bringing their “art kit” special places.

I hope you and your little artist (s) love this list and be sure to check out my entire Amazon Shop by clicking here! Enjoy making a little mess and fostering the creative spirit in your family!!
