Discover low mess craft supplies to do low mess crafts with kids! These supplies will save you from cleanup!
If you’re wondering why low mess crafts with kids is on my mind, I recently went away for night. While I was gone, my youngest, who LOVES to craft, found some glitter. Now, honestly, this one’s a really tidy kid. generally speaking. But I’m not sure exactly what happened, but they used the glitter unsupervised. I think you know where I’m going with this…
Long story short, it’s three weeks later and I’m still finding bits of glitter. In every room of the house on every level. I know you’ve all been there too, right? There are certainly worse messy craft supplies than glitter too. But as someone who frequently shops for craft supplies, I figured it was about time that I shared some of my recent low mess craft supply finds with you.
Craft supplies have really come a long way since we were kids and I’m pretty impressed with some of the things that exist now that didn’t when I was a kid. And let me preface this by saying, that I truly understand that kids experimenting with art supplies and making messes is part of the artistic process. It’s important for the them to experience all of their senses when they’re making art.
BUT ALSO, there are times when you can’t handle/don’t want a mess. There are also kids who don’t like messes (I had one of those, finger paint was NOT enjoyable for them). So it’s wonderful that there are options. These low mess craft supplies are also fantastic to take places like if you’re going on a trip or you have to spend a long time waiting somewhere.
So let’s get to it and I’ll share my favorite low mess craft supplies for kids!
There are also some craft supplies for kids that are naturally low mess, don’t forget those!
