FAQs and Help

Why is making things great for my child’s development?

  • Creative tasks stimulate all of your child’s senses, which are essential to help them understand the world they are growing up in. Each time your child tries an activity, new pathways are formed in their brain.
  • Making is also amazing for gross and fine motor skills. Little muscles become stronger the more they practice. 
  • It also helps develop children’s coordination and with using opposite sides of their brain, for example when they hold something with one hand and use scissors with the other.
  • Creative and sensory activities are great tools for calming anxious or frustrated little ones. 
  • Plus, it strengthens their communication skills  and mindfulness by creating a safe space for expression and open conversation. 


What ages are your kits suitable for?

Our kits have been created specifically for children aged three to seven. We test all of our activities with our very own Mini Maker Alex (age four), to check they are age-appropriate. 

However, all of our activities must be closely supervised as they may contain small pieces which could be a choking hazard and may not be suitable for younger toddlers under 36 months.


What can I expect in an activity kit?

Your kit will contain four activities to encourage your little one to learn through play. Each kit includes simple instructions for each activity and details about why that activity is great for your child’s development. Our kits are ideal if you want to try new activities without the mess or the preparation.

Please note, don't include is scissors for safety or the tray itself for sensory play!
