Crafting with your kids is as simple as 1, 2, 3 with our unique “In the Bag” system

no more prepping ACTIVITIES for hours that your kids will be bored with after 30 seconds

Step 1 – Pick a Bag

If you don’t always craft together in the same place, a nice sturdy bag is perfect. It should be sturdy and have some extra pockets for keeping things organized. If you always craft in the same spot, something like a crate or, better yet, a cart, may work best for you. Here are some of our top choices.

Step 2 – Fill Your Bag

To make crafting with your kids easier, and actually do-able…even when life is hectic…we keep things simple. Instead of going shopping every time you want to make a craft, you only need to shop once using our master list of supplies. We stick to this list for every single creative project you see on this site, including the products in our shop. That means that once your bag is filled, you’re ready to go!!! It’s like having a capsule wardrobe, but for kids’ crafts instead of your clothes. We mix and match these 27 basic items to make the most wonderful and imaginative crafts. You’ll be able to do more with less. Using this approach really reduces the amount of prep you’ll need to do (and limits the mess) so that you can get straight to the FUN!

Step 3 – Craft Away!

Now is when the real fun begins. Since you’ve taken the time to fill your bag, you’re ready to make anything that you find on this site or in our SHOP. Take some time to browse, or cut right to the chase with our 100 CRAFT FLASHCARD SETS. Each craft is broken down into bite-sized steps, with one step on each card (pictures and instructions). Just choose a craft and print off the flashcards. You can even punch a hole in the corner to put them on a ring to hang on your craft bag. It couldn’t be easier!!!
