Christmas 2019 Gift Guide: Kids Who Aren't into Toys

Here's your gift guide for the kid that is more into art and creating than toys! Our daughter rarely plays with toys but can turn our playroom into a blizzard of an art studio in a hot minute. Just wanted to share things that we love for our budding artist because sometimes it's hard to find things that aren't toys! :) Merry Christmas!

#1 WATERCOLORS We are hitting watercolors hard this year! We need something more than the Crayola water palettes and this is paint set that we LOVE. It has all the colors and more and is perfect for the budding artist. Want an experience with this? Gift your child a water coloring class from Jones Design Company/Simplified Classes and they will for sure be busy all Christmas break.

#2 COLOR HAPPY I love RAD and HAPPY. This coloring book is not your average coloring book. The pictures are so fun I find myself sneaking this book away so I can do some coloring myself. Rad and Happy also offers a monthly coloring subscription that we love and other classes. Lots of options on this site that I highly recommend.

#3 SMOOOOTH CRAYONS Thought it didn't get better than Crayola?! Well, try these out. It will be smooth operating for your artist while they color away.

#4 SCRATCH ART This is a stocking stuffer for us this year and with so many reviews I know it's going to be a hit.

#5 FRAME PAPER Looking for some fun paper that automatically frames art? IT EXISTS. This paper is so fun and makes everything a masterpiece. It's out of stock but check back--I know our local teacher supply shop has it so I'm picking mine up from there this year. We've already gone through 2 packs since summer so I'd say it is a hit!

#6 DRAWING BOOKS We checked these out from the library this summer multiple times and they are currently already wrapped under our tree (I get my elf-ing duties out of the way early). Hours of fun and I love that they are always a source of inspiration. You can find the comic book here and the mermaid and fairy book here

#7 SENSORY KIT These sensory kits--play dough plus all the accessories to create-- are a home run. Young, Wild, and Friedman has the best boxes and are totally worth the price. Open ended play for hours and don't have to mix the play dough or run to Hobby Lobby and buy #allthethings. It's all here! The dough is so smooth and smells good and all of the accessories make for awesome play. There are subscriptions offered and I am so tempted to subscribe--Check out the weather, fairy, and baking kits. Swoon. I think I want one for Christmas too!

#8 WATER COLOR BRUSHES After a trip to the Crayola Experience we had to have these! These water color brushes create fun effects and are a perfect stocking stuffer. They stand up to even the most aggressive of watercolorists so you'll get your monies worth.

#9 WASHI TAPE What's better than regular tape? Washi tape! These fun colors add all the flair to paper made crowns, super hero capes, and art projects.

#10 ART SPINNER My daughter asked for a potter's wheel this Christmas after a fun camping trip where she got to do spin art. Well a potters wheel is out of my budget but this is just right. I love this brand! We purchased this and reviews say you need extra paint--we have Crayola paint on hand. It's just a perfect art activity.

#11 ART FOR KIDS HUB SUBSCRIPTION If you don't know about Art for Kids Hub then jump on youtube right now! It's perfect for kids 4 and up and has EVERYTHING you could think of to draw. It's like the ultimate treasure trove of art lessons. While there are lots of lessons up on youtube their subscription is priced right and has even more goodies for your little artist--drawing guides, coloring pages and more! We spend every Christmas break drawing and watching these so it's a tradition now! I recommend starting with the snow globe.

#12 ART CADDY I am swooning over this art caddy from Lakeshore Learning. Everything from Lakeshore is top notch quality and it has ample storage for your artist to store everything they need.

Last thing, PAPER in bulk. Each year our Grandma gifts a big box of paper from Sam's Club and it is PERFECT to get our artist through the whole year. So check out your Sam's or Costco for supplies like paper, colored paper, tape, and fun markers for your artist. What are you getting for your favorite artist this year?
