These Generation Z crafting innovations range from customizable sneaker kits to tween sewing classes that let kids play a fashion designer role. Inspired by their parents' appreciation for maker culture, today's kids are more expressive than past generations.

Encouraged to participate in creative and hands-on activities, kids and tweens are no longer just playing with traditional toys but are instead creating their own. When they aren't designing papercraft figurines or sewing, they are likely to be at a canvas coloring party or at a graffiti tutorial that promises to teach them an array of street art techniques.

Some other Generation Z crafting innovations include various craft kits like those used to create gummy candies or eco-friendly art projects along with more traditional coloring books that boast a pop culture inspiration.
