2. Felt For All

Your kids are gonna want to make one of these for everyone they know. Good thing all it takes is felt, pom poms and some simple embroidery stitches .

3. Perfect Pants

4. Ruffle It Up

Your petal tip is the star of this oh-so-tasty show! Pro tip: practice your piping on waxed paper before decorating your actual cake.

Nothing makes our hearts flutter like seeing our kiddos sink their teeth into a new project. But sometimes the paints, feathers, pom poms and tubes of glitter can be a little overwhelming without some proper wrangling. So we rounded up a handful of kid-friendly spaces that intrigue, inspire and — most importantly — help our littler makers' creativity blossom.
