Children are creative by nature, once you find something that interests them the next challenge is finding an appropriate craft kit they will love. Our older boys loved science kits, anything that would grow (like rock candy), and generally anything messy like moon sand. Our daughter loved to draw and learned embroidery and knitting. The little one is interested in literally anything we put in front of him. Building, cooking, glitter crafts (he takes after me on that one :)....he will try anything once.
Creating something on their own builds confidence and opens their minds to new things to try. It also teaches them to take pride in their work and can open up so many conversations about how things are made and why.
