If my 5yo likes aqua beads and kinetic sand he will also like what?

He likes self contained craft things like aqua beads and kinetic sand, both of these in the version he has pack away in their own carry case. He has loads do generic art stuff including pencils with his name on. But any other art sets that he might like. He likes things he can do without help that are quite tactile but don’t need too much dexterity (he hasn’t enjoyed beads really).

Play doh?

Air drying clay?

Galt do some great kits e.g. foil art, mosaic art, beady key rings, mould and paint kits.

Mister Maker also do craft kits that we gave out in kids party bags one year.

Also look at Baker Ross. They have loads of different craft kits and many are seasonally themed e.g. Halloween, Christmas.

My daughter loves aqua beads and also has Hama beads (the ones you iron). We got her the advent calendar last year which gave us 24 xmas themed patterns to follow, 3 or 4 boards, and enough beads that we're only half way through them even with regular use through the year.

As a kid I loved these magnetic construction toys, built up a huge collection!

Sabbiarelli sand painting. The sand is contained inside different coloured pens.

Slime kits! Amazon have some fab ones. Dd loves it (and I really enjoy making it with her too!). There’s scents and add-ins etc. Great way to spend an afternoon.
