DIY Kits from Darby Smart


One of our favorite new books is Project Kid: 100 Ingenious Crafts for Kids by Amanda Kingloff, former lifestyle director of Parents Magazine. So many amazing projects that are presented in a beautiful and approachable way. Most of these projects make perfect indoor entertainment, and now it’s even easier for you and your family to build them.

Ms. Kingloff and Darby Smart have partnered to bring you four ready-made kits so kids and parents have everything they need for stress-free crafting fun. This is just the beginning for the kids sector; and new projects and designers will become available in the coming months. All Darby Smart quality-tested supplies and step-by-step directions are delivered to your door.

The below four projects are available today for children ranging in age from 5-10 y.o. and are priced between $16 – $49. View all projects
