From DIY Home Improvement Apps to Children's Needlepoint Kits

 - Dec 22, 2016
These helpful design aids range from DIY home improvement and decor apps to children's needlepoint kits that teach young generations a more traditional craft while encouraging creative play over too much screen time.

Standouts include a myriad of apps ranging from line drawing, sketching and coding platforms that target beginners who want to learn at their own pace. Additional favorites include 3D printing or toy-building subscription boxes that allow kids to use their creativity and critical thinking to create an object they can later play with.

Additional design aids range from photo-editing keyboards to creative fashion design kits -- like Fashionary's best-selling set -- that consist of sketching tools and a notebook with figurative templates found inside.
