Today we’re excited to be sharing gifts to make, buy, and read for creative Kids and Tweens ages 6 to 12. There is so much natural creativity and curiosity in school-aged kids. Even as pre-teens or tweens, kids are looking for a way to keep the fun of childhood while taking on a few more grown-up tasks (and what’s better than owning your own “grown-up” creative tool like a sewing machine or your own tool set?!)
Our quick disclaimer – we know these gifts range in prices and certainly aren’t saying you should purchase them all – this is just a creative starting point! Also, some of these items include affiliate links – that means we get a small commission if you make a purchase that we use to keep Crafting Connections up, running, and remaining awesome (and ad free!) Thanks for your support!
So without further ado, here are 21 Gifts for Kids and Tweens Ages 6-12!
Design Your Own Case Big Art Set + Exploding Stick Bombs + Create Your Own Comic Book + Brother Easy-To-Use Everyday Sewing Machine + 9 Piece Children’s Real Tools Kit + DIY Board Games + Lego Rental Subscription!!! (Coolest. Thing. EVER!) + Spirograph Design Set
We also really love Snap Circuits – a fun way to explore circuitry and electronics!
Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make (mostly hand stitching) + Ask Magazine Subscription + A Wrinkle In Time Quintet + Harriet the Spy + From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler + Simply Sewing: Kids Can Do It! (mostly machine sewing)
So these are a few gifts we will be turning to for the school-aged kids and tweens in our lives – for holidays and birthdays – how about you? What would you add to our list? Leave a comment below!
