Crafty Kids by Serabeena + Giveaway

I’ve always been fond of arts + crafts as gifts for kids. I’d like to say that my reasoning behind this is that they’re educational, creative and fun for the little folk… which is true… however, the best part is that it gives ME the perfect excuse to play with glitter, felt and other cool crafty creations!

Serabeena Animal Finger Puppets

Serabeena is a second-generation family-owned and operated business specialising in arts and crafts for kids. The business was started by Jan Bitcon in 2000, and is now run by her son Nicholas. All of the groovy products that you see here are designed in-house at the Serabeena studio in Collingwood, Victoria. Don’t they look like tons of fun!?

Serabeena Animal Masks

The man behind the crafts {Nicholas in his own words}…

“We pride ourselves on offering original, innovative toys that seek to encourage creativity and imagination in children. Obviously thought goes into everything that’s designed, but I like to think that we use more of it when developing our toys. That means examining a toy from multiple perspectives throughout the development process. Can you play with it like this? What happens if you do that?”

Serabeena Fairy Arts & Crafts Kit

As well as designing their own collection, the folks at Serabeena also design toys for private labels in Europe. You can even see one their designs displayed in the V&A Museum of Childhood’s permanent collection. Cool!

  • My two little boys would love the animal masks the most, we are big into animals at the moment and also dress ups / role playing….so these would be a wonderful all day activity. Make it in the morning, play in the afternoon (after nap time of course ;).

    wow arent they super awesome…my son who has just been diagnosed with learning and behavioural probs as well as adhd could really benefit from these, as we look for crafts to teach him and keep his mind active….and miss 4 would also think they are just plum awesome.

    However with that said I think Claire Peakes entry very deserving of a win, lol

    Good luck all

  • siu

    We are invited to go to Halloween party and I am headache what to prepare for my kids. It will be special to wear the animal mask on my 2 kids to the party? It is also good to let my girl make on her own in her first halloween party.

    My 3 year old would enjoy all of these! I think I would have the most fun with the glitter boxes and she would play for ages with those cute little finger puppets.


    The Animal Masks DIY kit will have my daughter in a fizz,she just won’t what to do.She’ll be giddy with glee to have her own animal mask to make and play with.


    The Animal Masks DIY kit look fantastic.I’m always thinking of things to do with the kids that will engage them and kept them interested.And off electrical devices.
