Art doesn't always have to be a serious, grown-up affair: every child should have the chance to get their hands dirty with a spot of fingerpainting, craft a huge junk-modelling dinosaur or design their own fashion collection. Art for kids can involve everything from drawing to pottery to fashion design to face painting. Many of the books, products and kits here make lovely gifts, and we've chosen them all with the aim of opening up the wide world of arts and crafts for children.
