About Us - Crafts4Kids, part of the Little Active Kids family

Crafts4Kids is a family run children’s arts & crafts and educational toy boutique shop. Nestled in the small village of Bottesford, Leicestershire, our shop began in 2005 with a focus on children’s art and craft kits and hobby kits such as sewing, knitting and crocheting.  We have expanded since those early days, now also offering a select choice of unique children’s toys from beautifully designed British and European toy companies.  

Not commonly found on the high street, we have hand picked a range of Fair Trade Soft Toys for Toddlers, Beautiful Boxed Art Sets with inspirational projects, Craft Kits such as Glitter and Foil Art, unique Sewing and Knitting gifts for childrenFashion Design Gifts for ChildrenTraditional Toys and Games and Wooden Musical Instruments. We have a selection of unusual Wooden Construction Kits to challenge children, beautifully designed Jewellery Making Sets and Dressing Up Sets that are just that little bit different.

Crafts4Kids is part of Little Active Kids Ltd - we run three on-line shops from our warehouse;  Little Skiers specializing in children's ski wear and skiing accessories for children with different, exciting brands that you won't find on the high street.  Little Surfers for everything you need for a family beach holiday to Cornwall, beautiful Mediterranean destination or just summer fun in the back garden.

Crafts4Kids is dedicated to finding really well designed gifts for children - you will not find the latest craze here, nor toys made of lots of plastic, but you will find proper educational and creative presents that you will be proud to give and children will love to receive. As parents, we have handpicked everything in our store ensuring we have a wide range of educational, eco-friendly, fun and unique children's gifts. Sourced from children’s toys designers across Britain and Europe with a choice for all age ranges, so if you need a hand choosing - just call us!
