The Best Art Stations for Kids to Get Creative at Home

The benefits of encouraging your children to explore self-expression through art are endless, as it will strengthen everything from their confidence to their creativity. Giving them their own space to experiment with crayons, paint and more provides the freedom to create while containing the mess. If you’re not sure what size or type of art station is right for your household, here are a few favorites to consider.

Crayola Spin & Spiral Art Station

This desktop station will delight by combining two popular art activities in one set. Kids can choose between using markers to create spiraled designs or spin paint around for wild creations. Best of all, it’s “kid powered” so no batteries required. Included in this set are six Pip-Squeaks Skinnies markers, three bottles of paint and 15 paper discs.

Step2 Deluxe Art Master Kids Desk

This may look like a regular kids desk, but it’s so much more. It’s the ultimate art station, storing all supplies (we’re talking markers, paint, coloring books, scissors and beyond) and providing a large area on which to work. There’s even a dry-erase writing surface, push-button light and matching chair to encourage the concentration they need.
