Gift ideas for kids who love art

Here at Arts and Bricks, we’re BIG fans of creative kids (and that’s every child)!

This round-up of arts and crafts gift ideas is full of products that foster children’s creativity and “artsy” making. Our list is specially selected for elementary-aged children, children 5 to 12.

Top gift ideas for children who love art

Sequin Surprise Pillow

At age 7, this was the first craft I watched my daughter spend weeks and weeks on. She’ll color for 10 or 15 minutes every few days. I love that she chose to fill in the entire background of this pillow. This crafty gift can be found on Amazon for under $20. We received this pillow as a gift from Grandma, and we have since gifted this doodle pillow to other art-loving elementary-aged girls, too. The pricing makes this an ideal school-friend birthday gift.

Scratch and Sketch / Scratch and Draw Books

Scratch and Draw gift book for artistic kids. Behind the black scratchable surface are patterns, swirls, holographic foil, and more!

My niece found this gem at the Monterrey Aquarium gift shop, but you can purchase it online and from Amazon, too, for about $15. The Trace-Along Scratch and Sketch series are beautifully made (the spiral ring makes them easy to use, too) and so fun! Behind the black scratchable surface are patterns, swirls, holographic foil, and more! We’re all for making your own Scratch and Sketch art (or Scratch and Draw art), but these books make great gifts for artistic kids!

Must-have art supplies for kids who love art

Set of Gel Pens

We’ve loved our colored gel pen set ($12 on Amazon), especially its brilliant colors and glittery sparkle. Whether on paper or fall leaves, our gel pen set did not disappoint. Just be careful not to drag your hand through the wet ink.

Gel pens are great art supplies for elementary-aged artists.
