The Fantastic 15 List of the Best Craft Kits For Girls
These are the best craft kits for girls…all fifteen of them! Do you have a crafty girl who loves to make stuff? Then you’re going to love this gift guide! When I was a kid, there was nothing I didn’t want to try. I loved the heck out of those kits that had everything in the box needed to get started.
Well, one exception…On my tenth birthday I received this Barbie doll loom kit, that consisted of pretty sparkly yarn and mini looms to knit her some cute winter duds. Only thing is (*sigh*) I could never get the hang of the looms (!)
Most kits though, I loved and used…These are the top picks for your crafty daughter, niece, or friend’s same! Not only are they fun they will teach skills like coordination and creativity.
String Art Kits for Girls
If your child takes a liking to yarn, but fumbles a little with knitting (I know I did…a story for another time) Enter string art – This is something I would have loved to have received because I know I would have gotten it!
These kits here I have found include a canvas for the design backdrop, plenty of yarn, and instructions. Choose from a finished design of a peace sign, unicorn, among other girl friendly styles. Later on, she can hang her finished string art piece on the wall with pride!
Make Your Own Dreamcatcher Kits
Make Your Own Dreamcatcher – Ever heard of the legend? In Native American tradition, hanging a dreamcatcher over a child’s bed was supposed to keep the bad dreams at bay and bring the good dreams in!
These kits have cool colors like pink and purple and look really dope. This one in particular is a dreamy (no pun intended) pastel with butterflies and beads, and sure to find a happy home with tween and teen girls everywhere!
Unicorn Poop and Slime Kits are a Hit With Girls!
Is your daughter asking for her own fun version of “unicorn poop”? Unicorns are hot hot hot and a timeless classic for girls so you can’t go wrong with this one! It’s not just the boys that can have their own slime making kits, these I have picked out come in beautiful sparkly colors and contain enough materials to make a certain amount of batches.

Paper Bowl Kits for Girls
Make a pretty paper bowl! If your daughter is interested in paper crafting I think this is a great choice. The kit here includes everything you need, including glue and bowl forms, to create a series of beautiful handmade decorative bowls from rolled up paper circles.
No, sorry, she can’t pass the popcorn in this one 😁 – it’s made for decorative purposes only; it would be great to put trinkets in like jewelry.
Jewelry Making Sets
Speaking of jewelry, bracelet and necklace making kits for girls are something that never goes out of style! I used to love making jewelry, when I was growing up (the 80’s, if you’re curious) we had this thing called “friendship bracelets” which were the fad.
They were made of a thin embroidery type colorful series of threads; you could add beads to them, you’d end up giving them to your “bestie” and the making and collecting of them could get addictive!

Bring that pastime back with these kits…The second one will let her create mermaid-themed jewelry which I understand mermaids are really hot right now! And the one on the right will let you make some beautiful pendants from glass cabochons.
Perler Bead Crafts – Fun and Fusion!
Perler beads are a big hit with kids (and we love them too!) These tiny little cylindrical beads come in many different colors and can be arranged in various patterns. Afterward, heat is applied to them in the form of a regular clothes iron applied, which fuses the bead design permanently. An awesome craft idea (adult supervision is encouraged for the ironing part)
I’ve found some pretty cool kits on Create For Less that have the ideal patterns girls like, including sea creatures, mermaids, unicorns, and the ever – popular Minions too! The kits also include as well as the beads, a plastic guide for bead placement and instructions. The only question will be what are you going to do with all these cute finished designs?
Fairy Garden Kits Are Very “In”!
One of the hottest trends right now is miniature fairy gardens! Perfect for the child who takes an interest in gardening, she will love putting her own mini garden together with this charming kit.
It’s got all the stuff to make it with, not only is it fun but she’ll have her own little enchanted garden to care for.
Everything is included, from the planter bowl to potting soil…there are paints to decorate the little creatures, gems, fairies, enchanted mushrooms, butterflies, and seeds to start the mini garden.
Make Your Own Bath Bombs, Lip Balm, and Soap
Hold a spa day party! Girls love the idea of pampering them selves, let them get together with their friends to make colorful bath bombs, lip gloss and sparkly soap. These kits are ideal because they contain child-friendly ingredients and let girls have a ball making their own DIY versions of bath and beauty crafts, just like ours.
The more bling, the better, anything you find that has lots of glitz will be a great gift!
Crystal Growing Set
Grow a beautiful crystal cluster! If your daughter is into science and STEM , this one is sure to be a winner. I actually received one of these kits from my aunt and uncle one Christmas and it was unlike anything I have ever seen – so I couldn’t wait to get started! I had to have a rock already to provide the base for the crystals – they didn’t get as big as I hoped; but it was fun to try.
I was like, 12, when I did this. The kit to the right I picked out looks pretty close to the one I had 😁 With this set you can grow amethyst, emeralds and quartz- amethyst is the favorite gem of royalty – so girls will no doubt enjoy this majestic purple gem as it grows. The gallery of pictures showed this kit had real potential.
I love sand art – from the last times I went to the county fair and got to have a few minutes of fun at the sand booth dipping teaspoonfuls of colorful sand in a cute shaped bottle layering it all the way to the top, I have always found sand art to be a highly underrated craft.
These here come with a variety of cute bottles (I especially love that one that’s skinny at one end) as well as a few pendants so you can wear your sand art too! They all have stoppers so you won’t lose any of that colorful sand or if it should spill. With the variety of colors included, there is sure to be tons of fun ahead.
Diamond Art Kits
Diamonds are a girls’ best friend for sure…when she’s got a bunch of these to make some stunning art with!
Now your crafty daughter or niece can paint with bling! Diamond art kits are a really hot item right now and enthusiasts are grabbing as many of these as they can – not just for the pretty pictures but the relaxing effect of working on them. They are some that are more advanced and some that are very much kid-friendly. The subjects, though, are endless!
Depending on your child’s age and skill level, I have chosen the sets above as a few of the most appealing designs and difficulty level (easy to moderate.) She will definitely enjoy this as a hobby and not only that have some gorgeous, sparkly art to hang on her wall.
Fairy Lantern Craft Kit
Fairies and other magical creatures are always a winner with tween/teen girls and this fairy lantern kit will be a show-stopper for sure! She will love DIY-ing her very own nightlight with all the materials included.
Or make it for a sleepover party to make for quite a magic evening with friends!
There’s a jar, LED lights , flower decorations and instructions. The fairy cutout silhouettes will look striking against the glow of LED light. Beautiful!
Design Stuffed Animal Sewing Kit
If she likes to sew, you can’t go wrong with this stuffed critter sewing kit – it has everything inside to make a passel of adorable stuffed animals. The holes are pre-drilled making it even easier to get a leg up on the hobby of sewing or felting. It also includes a plastic needle which is harmless.I really needed something like this once – maybe I would have gotten more into sewing if I’d had a kit like this!
The adorable animals include an llama, penguin, fox and sloth; stitch and stuff these as well as the others; they will be great to have in a collection, put them on your dresser or bureau. A relaxing activity that may open the door for more fun sewing projects.
Scratch Art Starlight Projector
Scratch art is an awesome artform all on its own, but did you know you can take it and make it illuminate on the ceiling or wherever? This kit is the brainchild of a small company incorporating STEM fields into unique and inventive craft kits.
So if your daughter loves scratch art this would be a great find, I’ll bet her friends don’t have something like this!
Room Diffuser Essential Oil Kit
“Now that’s a scent-sible idea!”
Well this may be the most unique one yet….now your daughter can make her very own essential oil diffuser! I used to have a diffuser of my own so i know what a nice touch these are to a small room.
Having her very own fragrance producing lab is going to be the most fun and educational activity yet. Getting to try out different fragrances and seeing how they perform will be quite the fun-filled activity.
Well I hope you enjoyed this lineup…The “fantastic fifteen” of the best craft kits for girls! Any of these are sure to be a big hit for birthday parties, sleepovers with friends, Girl Scout gatherings, Christmas, and so forth. Which of these is YOUR favorite?
