We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Encourage your kids' creative skills with one of these art sets. Most of the kits we've chosen are for ages 4 and older because they include small objects that could be choking hazards for children younger than 3. Whether you believe your child is a prodigy or you're just hoping to spark an interest, one of these will keep small hands drawing and painting for hours. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best art set for kids on Amazon.

An avid reader and outdoors enthusiast, Joe earned his doctorate in literary studies before making the lateral leap from academia to technical writing. He now lives and works in the inter-mountain West where he creates technical and marketing content, including white papers, solution briefs, and courseware for some of the world’s largest information technology companies. With more than 14 years of experience in the field, he has learned more than he ever thought he would know about such enterprise IT topics as cloud computing, storage, databases, business software, and networking. When he’s not writing about business computing, he can be found outdoors, probably hiking with his family and dog.
