Few things are more frustrating to parents than having their kids’ stuff scattered all over their room, or even worse, all over the house. Art kits, many of which have lots of individual parts and pieces, can lead to a huge mess if not put away and stored properly when not in use. To protect your sanity, look for an art set that comes with its own storage unit, whether a box, bag or case. Note that some cases can be quite heavy. So even though they might be perfect for storing art items in an out-of-the-way place, they might be too heavy for small children to carry safely.
