My girls are wild about crafts but sometimes we buy kits that are much too advanced for their age and I end up doing doing the craft for them. We have always been big fans of the crafts from Alex Toys for their creativity, colorful design and educational merit. Every year we discover new Alex crafts that are designed perfectly for my kids. The following crafts are my favorite from their newest collection. Buy them for the holidays or store them for a rainy day!

No need for cutting or pasting, this kit does the work for you. Plus everything is so cute you'll be happy to hang the masterpieces on your playroom wall. ($16.95)
2 Birdie Banks from Alex's Little Hands is ideal for kids 6 and up because they get to decorate two adorable owls and learn the value of saving money in the banks!
