Three years old is typically a great time to introduce new elements of art and crafts to kids. They may be starting to perfect their grip with crayons and paintbrushes. They may be more cautious of mess, and their attention spans may be developing more. The best tools will further help develop these skills. These are some of our favorite art and craft supplies for 3 year olds.

4. Melissa & Doug Decorate Your Own Wooden Butterfly Magnets Craft Kit
Another craft kit that is fabulous! This one provides magnets for children to paint. The picture is butterflies, but there are other designs as well. This project would make a fun gift made by a child for anyone who loves your child: teacher, grandparents, aunts & uncles, etc.

Glitter glue is so much fun! I still like using it. These Glitter Glue Pens are washable which is perfect for 3 year olds! These pens can help add embellishments to almost any project. They also make working with glitter fun for everyone and much easier to clean up than loose glitter!

8. Children’s No Spill Paint Cups
This is genius for anyone who has little ones that paint. Can you imagine how much less mess you’d have in the classroom with these No Spill paint cups? I want a set for my house too!
9. Ultimate Crayon Collection
If you have a child who loves to color this Ultimate Crayon Collection is the ultimate crayon collection. All of those colors means more options for beautiful creations to hang on my fridge. I know I wish I had that many crayons when I was little!
10. Do A Dot Art! Markers
Do a Dot markers are a fun yet less messy way to paint. There are a ton of printables online that incorporate the use of the dot markers. They are also fun for working with extra large pieces of paper on the floor.
How fun are those? Not only are they fun for the kids but a lot of them help parents and teachers too. It’s much easier for us if the activity is low prep and low mess which is why I chose these certain tools. When the activity is less stress for parents and teachers, you can watch how your child’s creativity is growing!
