2020 Gift Guide: Arts and Crafts Klutz Kits for the Holidays! #Scholastic #giftsforkids

If you're looking for educational gifts that allow kids to explore and create, you'll definitely want to check out the Klutz and Klutz Jr. kits from Scholastic! We are longtime fans of Klutz products and have turned our friends and family on to them, too. Our top kit suggestions this season are the Klutz Jr. My First Rock & Gem Collection, Klutz DIY Rainbow Catcher, and Klutz Tiny Art Studio: Color & Create 10 Mini Masterpieces. All three of these kits allow for hands-on learning paired with arts and crafts fun. Check them out below to learn more!

Klutz Jr: My First Rock & Gem Collection

This set is a must for any junior geologist who loves examining rocks. This kit comes with 8 polished rock samples such as turquoise, amethyst, rose quartz, lemon jade, lapis, howlite, and more. The mystery dig kit also has a surprise rock to be found and a field guide to find the details. Starting with the hammer, chisel, and paintbrush the kit allows your child to find their own way and includes decorations like googly eyes an paint to personalize their rocks. The field guide has easy-to-follow STEM content, including fun facts and jokes.

Klutz: DIY Rainbow Catcher

Bring rainbows right inside the house! This easily assembled, triple-crystal, motorized kit sticks to any window and uses incoming sunlight to project rainbows into your child's room. Also included is a detailed, 32-page book, which we loved because it does a fantastic job explaining the science of rainbows. Ever wonder which specific weather patterns cause them? This STEM book lays it all out nicely. Learn how to find and record rainbows in the wild. Plus there are six experiments to try. Make a rainbow bubble snake or volcano; but for our kids nothing beats rainbow slime!

This is one of our favorite kits and we find that both boys and girls love it! This kit includes small-scale versions of art supplies perfect for painting, coloring and more. Kids will learn about the artists and history behind their classic works of art with tongue-in-cheek takes by famous artists including Frida Kahlo, Vincent Van Gogh, Piet Mondrian, Leonardo di Vinci, and more. They even provide extra blank canvases that allow budding artists to express themselves, and a super cute display easel to show their mini masterpieces. For kids who like to engage in imaginative play, this set will be use long after the art is complete!
