Crafts Council: Let's Craft packs for children

You can directly help bring joy and creativity into the homes of thousands of children across the country, at a time when this is more needed than ever.  The Covid-19 lockdown has pushed even more families to the brink. When for so many putting food on the table each day is a real challenge, buying crayons and paper for a child to play with can be an unaffordable luxury.

Right now, hundreds of thousands of children do not have access to basic art materials to support their creativity, learning and wellbeing. And with the start of the school holidays, when daily learning activities will stop, the need for creative play and engagement will be felt even more.

That’s why the Crafts Council is getting art activity packs to kids all over the country, through the Let’s Craft appeal.

Let’s Craft packs are for primary and secondary school-aged children most in need of support, such as those who are eligible for free school meals. Distributed by a network of community hubs and food banks, each pack contains art supplies such as pens, pencils, paper, crayons and a scrapbook, as well as an activity book designed by Andria Zafirakou, art teacher and winner of the 2018 Global Teacher Prize.

Thanks to our donors and partners we have been able to reach thousands of children over the past two months. Now we want to raise at least £100,000 this summer to get 10,000 packs distributed. And you can help.

How you can help?
