In today’s modern world, activities that allow children to develop creative skills away from screens are more important than ever. With bright, attractive designs, clear instructions and inspiring projects, buttonbag craft and sewing kits for children are the perfect alternative to screen time.

Look what I made

Learning to knit or sew improves fine motor skills, hand-to-eye coordination, problem-solving and could even lay the groundwork for a life-long creative passion. Making things, tangible things that you can hold in your hand, is one of the great joys in life.

Whether they are making a fluffy pompom, a felt elephant or a christmas decoration, most children (and a lot of adults) love the opportunity to proudly say: “Look what I made!”

It’s why the motto at Buttonbag is ‘Create Time’.

Crafty Parties

Lots of our craft kits for children make perfect crafty party activities. Not only do the party guests have fun making them, but they have something special and unique to take away from the party afterwards. We have highlighted the kits especially suitable in our Parties section.
