Let creativity run rampant today and everyday. I am a total supporter of DIY crafting with my kiddos. However, with our busy schedule, sometimes it’s easier to get a craft kit for them to do. It saves me a load of time and still gives their clever minds something to do. And because Target is a place our family frequently visits and orders from, it tends to be one of my go-to places to find creative crafts, especially for my daughter. Keep reading to find some of my favorite suggestions for creative crafts for girls that they will love to stay busy with.

Stock Up on Creative Crafts For Girls
There are a few things that I don’t ever mind buying more of: Legos, books, and creative crafts and craft kits for my kids. Okay, maybe we have reached our limit of Legos, but the latter two are always welcome in our house.
I would much rather have my kids involved in crafts, small projects, or arts than sitting on a device playing mind numbing games. I know all you Mamas out there are nodding your heads because you know how hard it can be in our technology driven world to overcome the challenges of limiting electronics.
However, with a little encouragement and some fun options in front of them kids can be captivated by a craft kit that encourages imagination and creativity.
My daughter especially loves to craft, draw, color, and create so I decided to make a list of crafts for girls that we can try together. Now I’m sharing it with my readers so that you too can get your girls’ imaginations flowing.
Convenience + Crafting
To make getting crafty uber easy all of these suggestions can be ordered from Target. You can also check to see if they carry them in your local store and pick them up on your next target run or drive up visit. However, I love the convenience of free shipping for all Target red card holders, so the online option is my fav.
21 Creative Crafts for Girls by Category
Ballerina and Princess Crafts
We’ve had one of these sets for a long time and its one of the things that my daughter brings out again and again. She loves being able to change the dolls’ clothes and play pretend.
Remember fashion plates?? This is basically the same idea only better because it’s princess themed. Your girl will love it.
This one will keep the girls busy with a number of arts and activities to enjoy that includes the Disney princesses.
Glitter with no mess? Um, yes please! This one has all the shimmer that girls love without the messes that moms don’t.

These are great because girls can play and pretend over and over again with the reusable stickers.
For the fashionista in your life, this activity will let her design her own unique outfits and styles.

You can’t go wring with unicorn anything when it comes to girls these days. A DIY unicorn hoodie kit will get squeals of excitement all around.
How cute are these puff charms?! With so many options to use girls will have a blast accessorizing with this kit.
Add a playful element to her room with a light box kit. She can have fun putting up different messages whenever she wants.

Dream catchers are so pretty and your girl can create her own to put in her room (or anywhere) with this kit.
I’ve given this as a gift a few times. Girls think its great to be able to carry their water in a water bottle that they decorated.
L.O.L. Surprise is one of the current girl crazes, so needless to say your girls will be so excited to get started making jewelry with this kit.
Girls can express themselves through their jewelry with a word wear set.

A new take on the classic braided bracelet. There are so many ways to make the cutest wrist accessories for girls.
This is one of my favorites on the list of crafts for girls because of the meaning behind it. Girls can make special pedants for themselves, but it is also a great DIY gift they can make and give from the heart to someone they love.
