Little kids’ creations can be downright adorable! It can be overwhelming sometimes when the stack of artwork is higher than the available space to put it, but it is sweet. It is amazing to watch their creative wheels spin as they fashion a piece worthy of Le Louvre, in our opinion of course. These art and craft supplies for 4 year olds are our top 10 favorites.
One of the best things about these tools is they give the child a starting point or an idea but still allow for lots of creativity. They are our favorite top ten art and crafts tools appropriate for 4 year olds.

With the right tools, even 4 year olds can craft masterpieces.

I remember using scented markers as a child, but scented crayons would be perfect for 4 year olds. They will enjoy the smells while they color and we’ll be happy their creative activity just became a sensory activity too!
2. Scratch Art Doodle Pad
Scratch Art is such a fun way to create a masterpiece that is different than traditional crayons. This scratch doodle pad is essentially perfect for on the go creating. It won’t require a full crayon box and coloring book, just the simple doodle pad and included wood scratching stick.

4. Fairy Tale Castle
Your 4 year old loves to play pretend to be a knight or a princess? This cardboard Fairy Tale Castle will be perfect for them! They get to decorate it in any way they want and because of it’s size, this castle can be a work in progress for a long time!
