how to make a toddler craft kit!

we had a sweet little friend turn 2 this past weekend & kenna & i collaborated on some gift ideas for her. well... i decided to make her a little craft kit & we put all of kenna's favorite craft supplies in it. i guess that counts as collaboration. it turned out to be a super cute & easy idea, perfect for the little crafty one in your life!

here's what we did:

we collected bunches of fun crafty supplies- all of these came from the dollar tree except for the paints & the little strawberry notebook. i got those at target because i wanted to be certain that the paints were high-quality washable & non toxic! truthfully, the whole craft kit idea came to me when i saw those stinkin' adorable fruit & princess themed sponge stamps!
 gather your supplies & find a cute box or container it all fits in. this one was also from target in the kid's closet aisle. i just loved the little colorful hearts! perfect for our little friend's birthday.
put it all in the box & add a fun little label with the recipient's name! [this one was from martha stewart for michael's ages ago.]
wrap the box in some tissue & tuck it into a pretty bag- instead of a traditional gift bag, i like to use a little reusable shopping tote since they come in so many cute & fun designs & are usually inexpensive! then the birthday girl can carry her stuff around in style!
ta-da! ready for giving & spreading a little crafty goodness. 

other 'kit' themes i think would be really fun would be a cooking kit [a set of play dishes & toy food etc.], or a bug-catching kit for the little menfolk [dollar tree has lots of bug catching tools right now, & maybe add a tiny flashlight in there!]
