Small Gifts For Children – 2021 Review And Giveaway!

CreArt Painting By Numbers by Ravensburger – rrp £12

Age Suitability: Age 11+

It can be hard finding the perfect small gift for an older child, so I do tend to go down the art and craft route. This CreArt set from Ravensburger is a brilliant painting by numbers set for an older child. East enough to not be too taxing, but still get a fab allows result for your efforts.

Unlike most children’s painting sets you get a high quality paintbrush and lovely thick paints. And also unlike other painting by numbers, the picture to paint contains no black borders. Instead, they give you outlines in the colours that you need to use, which leads to a much more professional result at the end of the day.

Find more about the full range of CreArt sets here on the Ravensburger website – and buy them here on Amazon. They start at around £8, but the set we were sent costs £12.

Amazing Magic Changing Pens rrp £15

Age Suitability: All ages

Sticking with the art theme, I always love to give creative and craft based gifts as small gifts for children. But these magic colour changing pens are a brilliant idea for children of all ages. Not only do you have a full range of colours for a standard colouring in activity, but they have the amazing ability to change colour using the special activating pens within the kit.

Write secret messages. Make cool patterns. Make reverse images.  And no, they don’t have that same strange smell like they used to have in the 80s. Find them at the Wicked Uncle Website,or buy them here at Amazon.
