Fun craft kit ideas for boys

Craft kits aren't just for girls. They're important for boys too.

Being creative with crayons, markers and paints on white paper is very important. But craft kits are also helpful and fun for older preschool and school age kids. They're good for hand-eye and finger coordination. They also give children a feeling of success when the craft is done.

Boys shouldn't miss out on these benefits of crafty play just because most kits are made for girls. So here's some craft kits that boys will love.

My First Sticky Mosaics

All kids love stickers so sticker crafts are a great choice. These My First Sticky Mosaic sets are very popular. They good for preschool and younger school aged boys because they have bigger pieces than the normal Sticky Mosaic sets. This means they're easier for younger boys to do. They're also a no mess craft so they're great for parents. 

Many of the My First Sticky Mosaic themes are for girls. But there are a few that are good for boys. Vehicles is the most popular but there's also Pets, Circus, Zoo Animals, Team Rescue and Curious George. Amazon has all these in stock. 

Shrinky Dinks for Boys

Shrinky Dinks are another popular kids' craft activity - and this insect themed one ranks as no.1 for the boys topics. (I guess it's not surprising one about bugs ranks so highly.) 

Many of the Shrinky Dinks sets are made for girls too there are more in this range for boys than in the My First Mosaics. Apart from Insects there's also Dinosaur, Monster Lab, Pirates, Robots and On the Move just to name a few of them. You can find all of these at Amazon

Shrinky Dinks are for school age boys aged 5 and up. 

Paper Airplanes Craft

Making paper planes is a classic activity for kids (and grown ups). This kit has instructions for 6 different types of airplanes. (It comes with enough good quality paper to make 2 of each plane - so 18 planes in total.) 


Some of the planes are difficult to make. So for some boys this might be best as a craft activity that's shared with a grown up. Boys of about 9 to 10 years should be able to make all the planes without too much trouble. 

Sticky Mosaic Pirates

This Sticky Mosaic Pirate kit is the standard one for school age children. This Pirate one is the most popular Sticky Mosaic craft for boys. But there are some other great ones in this range too like Dinosaurs and Dragons, Sports, Jungle and All Stars. (Amazon has all of these in stock.)

These kids are a lot of fun (even for adults) and look fabulous when finished. 

Build a Bird House

This is a great woodwork kit that's not only a fun craft but a useful one too. It's the most popular birdhouse craft for kids on Amazon. 

The birdhouse is a good size and the wood is good quality. Some parents do replace the plastic pegs with more sturdy screws though. 

This birdhouse is a good craft if you want something that isn't too hard and can be enjoyed by the whole family. 

Build a Race Car Craft

This is another build it yourself kit for boys. This kit lets boys create an impressive race car that's more than 10" long. There's no cutting or gluing needed either. Boys just need a screwdriver to put the car together. 

As cars are one topic most boys are mad about this craft kit makes a good birthday or Christmas gift too.
