Awesome Resin Craft Kits

Exploring new avenues for creativity and fun — that’s when we discover new passions, learn new things, and make special creations.

So, if you’ve never tried out a resin craft activity, now is the time. Resin craft kits from Purple Ladybug provide a perfect mix of structure and creativity.

The kits include everything that you need, and they’re easy to use. But, they also create the chance for you to explore your creative side and create a memento that reflects your unique personality.

Let’s take a look at what crafting with resin is all about. 

Are Resin Crafts a Good Activity for Kids?

Unlike most of our products, these are not intended for young kids! Resin craft kits are a wonderful activity for responsible teens and parents to do either to create creations for their families or with their kids as cheerleaders. Resin is not a suitable activity for young kids or kids of any age who are not closely supervised. 

 

What are Resin Crafts?

As parents, every day is a new adventure. And that’s not just a cliche. Truly, every day your child says or does something that you never saw coming. 

However, that doesn’t mean that you don’t get stuck in ruts. Especially when it comes to finding fun new activities. 

Comfort and reliability can sometimes get in the way of trying new things. The same old snacks, games, and tv shows are repeated over and over. 

But despite their attachment to familiar favorites, kids also love and need new things. They just need a boost. Exploring new avenues for creativity and fun — that’s when we bond, grow together, learn new things, and make special memories. 

So, if you’ve never tried out a resin craft activity, now is the time. Resin craft kits from Purple Ladybug provide a perfect mix of structure and creativity. 

 The kits include everything that you need, and they’re easy to use. But, they also create the chance for a child to explore their creative side and create a memento that reflects their own unique personality. 

 Let’s take a look at what crafting with resin is all about. 

Are Beginner Resin Crafts a Good Activity for Kids?

Resin craft kits are a wonderful activity for kids aged eight years and up. 

But, what exactly is resin? Well, it’s a special liquid substance known for being sticky and strong. It starts out as a liquid, and can then be made to harden into the desired shape. Nail polish, for example, is considered a resin. 

Resin is highly viscous, meaning that it’s resistant to flowing or changing shape. That makes it easy to manipulate — and perfect for use in crafting. 

Here’s how our resin craft kits work: by combining the resin with a special hardener liquid, you create a new liquid mix that will dry to form a solid product. 

You’ll mix the resin and the hardener, pour it into a mold, and allow it to dry. 

After removing the mold, you’ve got your finished resin shape. Add some glitter and fun shapes into the process, and hey — you’re crafting.

Resin Craft Kits from Purple Ladybug

Resin craft kits from Purple Ladybug make wonderful gifts. These activities promote creativity, self-expression, and a sense of accomplishment. 

Kids love having possessions that they helped make with their own two hands; items with memories attached to them that they can treasure for years. 

Creative play also happens to be one of the most important developmental activities for helping children to learn, grow, and feel happy. 

Plus, since adult supervision is required for resin crafting, it makes for a great bonding activity with mom and dad. 

Our resin activity kits include absolutely everything that you need to create your craft. Allow us to introduce the Purple Ladybug selection of resin craft kits: photo charms, unicorn horns, and unicorn horn headbands. 

All of our kits come with detailed instructions. They provide hours of fun, and they’re easy to use. 

We’ll cover the basics of using each craft kit below. But, be sure to check out our tutorial videos for full step-by-step guides on using each kit. And remember — always prepare your workspace, wear gloves, and follow all of the advised safety precautions. 


Photo Charms Craft Kit

Resin Crafts: Photo Charms Craft Kit

With the Photo Charms Craft Kit, you can create a memory charm to hold a photo. This can be used to hang on backpacks, keychains, or put on display in the bedroom. 

Here’s what’s included in the Photo Charms Craft Kit: 

 

  • Six pairs of gloves
  • Three mixing cups
  • Three measuring cups
  • Three stirring sticks
  • Three glitter pots
  • Two stencils
  • Two molds
  • One pair of safety glasses
  • One resin
  • One hardener
  • One hold punch
  • One smoothing file

 

Before starting with any resin crafting activity, be sure to clear off your workspace and organize all of your different materials. Work on a large table, and protect the surface with taped-down craft paper or newspaper. 

To get started with your craft, you’ll measure and mix the resin and the hardener. As you stir the mixture, you’ll see the resin go cloudy. Keep stirring until you see it become clear again. 

For extra fun, add in some glitter until you find the color that you’re looking for. Then, pour the mix into your mold. 

While that’s drying, you can use the stencil to trace and cut your photo into the shape that matches your charm. Use the hole punch to add the space for the hanger that matches your mold. 

Once done, place the picture on the mold, add the final layer of clear resin on top, and you’ve got your memory charm!

Unicorn Horn Craft Kit

The Unicorn Horn Craft Kit creates a sparkling work of art to add to bedroom decor on a dresser or end table. It can be used as a decoration, a paperweight, or as a tower to hold scrunchies and hair ties.

Here’s what’s included in the Unicorn Horn Craft Kit: 

 

  • Five pairs of gloves
  • Five mixing cups
  • Five measuring cups
  • Five stirring sticks
  • Five glitter pots
  • One unicorn horn mold
  • One pair of safety glasses
  • One resin
  • One hardener
  • One hold punch
  • One smoothing file

 

Measure and mix your resin and hardener. Stir, then add your desired amount of glitter. Pour the mix into the mold and allow it to dry for a few hours. 

Because the horn is large and you shouldn’t mix more than 50 mL at once, this will take two or more rounds of mixing and pouring. 

The multiple pours mean that the horn will end up with different layers. This is where creativity comes into play to make each one unique — you can add new glitter to each mix to build up to a multi-colored final product.

To finish the process, the mold peels off, leaving your finished unicorn horn craft. To make this even more fun, the mold can always be unfolded into its original shape to be reused. 

 

 

Unicorn Headband Craft Kit

The Unicorn Headband Craft Kit includes similar materials and steps to the Unicorn Horn Craft Kit. But with this one, you’ll get to attach the horn to a headband to make a fun and wearable creation.

Here’s what’s included in the Unicorn Headband Craft Kit: 

  • Six pairs of gloves
  • Three mixing cups
  • Three measuring cups
  • Three stirring sticks
  • Three glitter pots
  • One unicorn horn mold
  • One pair of safety glasses
  • One resin
  • One hardener
  • One hold punch
  • One smoothing file
  • One pink headband
  • Double-sided tape

 

Make your unicorn horn just like you would the Unicorn Horn Craft Kit. 

Once the resin has set, you’ll peel off the mold to reveal the completed horn before unfolding it to return to its original shape for reuse. 

Use the double-sided tape stickers to attach the horn to the headband, and then you’re all set with a fun new hair accessory! 

Kids that enjoy playful new hairstyles and experimenting with new looks will love their unicorn headband. 

They’ll be proud to show off their crafty handiwork, and they’ll have the pride of knowing that they used their own skills and creativity to help design their own special look. 

 

Finding the Perfect Creative Gift Ideas for Kids

Resin craft kits make wonderful gifts for birthdays and holidays — they’re special because they’ll bring parents and children together, spending time working through the crafting process. 

And when the crafting is over, your child will have a little treasure that they can keep for years. 

These kits are a hit with kids and parents alike because they bring you together. Better yet, the final products are functional — ready for use as photo charms, bedroom accessories, or headbands. 

Here’s how one of our five-star reviews describes the Unicorn Horn Craft Kit:

“This was super cute for my eight-year-old daughter. She stacks her friendship bracelets and scrunchies on it. I love when decor is practical too.”
