Kids love colorful, fun projects. But sometimes they can carry over to the table...or walls. Keep them busy with these top 5 craft kits for kids.

Summer's here! 

And for your kids, that means one thing: boredom. As parents, it sometimes seems like there are only so many activities we can provide for them before they start entertaining themselves.

And usually, that means a mess. Spilled paint, crayoned walls, you name it.

We know you're busy. You don't have the time to clean up artistic messes off of your walls. So what do you do?

Top 5 Craft Kits For Kids

Instead of handing your kids a box of crayons and following them with a Magic Eraser, try these great craft kits for kids to keep them occupied.
