The whole DIY and crafting movement hasn’t been lost on kids. They may not spend their days combing Pinterest for their next big project, but creating something all their own ranks high on their list of enjoyable activities. Full of activity kits related to science, fashion, art, general crafting and games, Klutz is an absolute go-to for parents. Made for a wide range of ages and abilities, Klutz kits can be done alone or as a family. They’re hit gifts around my house this time of year, plus they make great time fillers for bad weather days stuck at home.
