aBaby Mega Creative Art Station

aBaby Mega Creative Art Station -- art and crafts

Encouraging artistic chops while keeping walls free from expressive crayoning is a delicate balance. This art and crafts station helps focus the colorful chaos with loads of supply storage bins, a paper roll holder to provide an endless canvas (with no lines to color in), and room for two stools so you can show them where their inner Rembrandt comes from. The result is wall-worthy art, rather than wall-as-art-station.

Or whatever you call whatever this thing does in this brave new 3D printed world. Comes especially in handy this time of year — instead of throwing a fit, Junior can draw that made up toy they want right into existence.

OMY Giant Coloring Pages

OMY Giant Coloring Pages -- art and crafts

Not to be confused with coloring books for grownups, this is one grown-ass coloring book. Technically, it’s just one page, but at nearly 6 feet long it offers a volume’s worth of scenery to color. If they ever manage to fill in the whole thing, your kid ends up with a unique piece of wallpaper … or tent. Markers not included, staying in the lines definitely not required.
