Momma, you do not need to be crafty to enjoy crafting with your kids


We do all of the heavy lifting for you and guide you week after week through the process for each and every project


Meet Joy.

Hi!  My name's Joy, and I'm the founder and chief creator at “In the Bag Kids’ Crafts”.  As a pediatric occupational therapist, I've developed a passion for helping parents truly connect with their children in meaningful ways through hands-on activities, while also helping kids develop skills needed to be successful in school and life.  It's truly my belief that the best way to do that is through play, and especially through the creative process (like doing crafts)!  But life is busy!!!  So, I've designed a unique approach that makes creating with your family actually do-able and enjoyable, not just one more stress-filled thing on the to-do list.  We do this by keeping the crafts simple and making each one from the SAME master list of supplies which fit into one bag.  REALLY!  

This collection keeps you creating with your kids all year long, as you craft with more than just paper and glue...but with heart!

Enough about me...go make something!!!

The Perfect Learning Through Play Way to Teach Your Child All About Their Name

Name Crafts Collection
Just $14.99


What Smart People Like You Want to Know...

What do I actual get?

You will get a pdf download of more than 60 pages, including step-by-instructions with images, material lists, and templates that you'll need to make each week's craft (and then some). Plus links to the bonuses.

What are the recommended ages?

This collection is perfect for kids ages 3 to 6. Of course, older kids can also enjoy these crafts even if they've already mastered how to write their names.

Does it matter if I don't have a crafting bone in my body?

Absolutely not...all you need is a willingness to share some quality time with your kiddo. We do all of the heavy lifting idea wise. The step-by-step instructions for each craft are clear, simple and include images.

Why buy this collection if I could find name writing ideas on the internet?

Yes, there are lots of ideas out there for name writing crafts, but wouldn't it be great to just have an entire year's worth (and then some) right at your fingertips, ready to go. Such a relief.  

Why is it digital and not a real book?

I love a good book and even the smell of the pages...but sometimes a digital book just works better. In this case, you'll have unlimited access to print the templates after you download the templates as you need them without the need for a copy machine. And, if a page gets messed up with paint or glue...or can just print a clean copy.  

How much does it cost?

The entire collection of 16 name crafts is priced at just $14.99. Basically we're talking a dollar a craft. You really can't beat that bargain.

Am I going to have glitter all over the place?

No way! This is a glitter free zone. Not only that, but once you fill your bag using our master list of supplies...just 27 basic items that fit into one'll be set to go. This approach really does help minimize the mess that keeps many parents from making crafts with their kids.  

Can I use this craft collection with my preschool classroom?

Yes, if you purchase this collection you can use this craft with your students, but please don't share it beyond that. Feel free to tell other teachers all about us so that they can get their copies too. And if your school would like a multi-use license, just drop me an email at We'll work something out.

What are you waiting for?

You're going to teach them their name anyway...why not do it in the funnest way possible?

1 Choose a Bag

Pick a large bag (or basket, container, etc.) to hold all of your craft supplies. It may take a beating over time considering you'll want to grab it and take it with you when you want a quick craft. So, make sure that it's also very sturdy.

2 Fill It With the Right Stuff

Use our master list of craft supplies to fill your bag. We stick to this basic list of just 27 items for every single craft project that we do at "In the Bag Kids' Crafts". That way, once you fill your bag, you're ready to go. You can download the list HERE.
