Over the past few years we went from having no flexibility and feeling trapped to starting and growing our own successful kids art & crafts club.
We started really small, doing classes from a church hall that we rented per hour.
Within a year we had turned our small club into a thriving business, and not too long after that we expanded to teach at 61 fixed locations.
Since then, we’ve added workshops, parties, kits, taught online and had the privilege to help thousands of other creatives all over the world start and grow their own clubs too.
And now it’s your turn!
When it comes to starting, running and growing a kids arts & crafts club, we know what works and what doesn’t.
And today we’re sharing our top 4 reasons to start a kids arts and crafts club business.
So let’s dive in.
It gives you flexibility, freedom, fulfilment and fun.
It gives you the flexibility and freedom to run your kids club on YOUR own terms and plan things around your family’s schedule. YOU are the boss.
For example, you can run your classes from home, over weekends or in the mornings when your kids are at school.
Or you could create and sell kits whilst still keeping up a full-time job.
Or teach online and reach kids from all over the world. The world is your oyster.
When thinking about starting a new business or side hustle, the first thing most people think is that it’s going to cost you a lot to set it up… pheww, scary!!
That's what makes this opportunity so unique; you don’t need a lot of money to get started (actually you need very little).
Be smart when you set up your club. For in-person classes, you could pay a small fee per child or rent a room by the hour, or host classes at a restaurant, church, or school, or even at home around your dining room table (for free).
Another way to save costs for in-person classes is to use lots of recycled materials. Look at these amazing crafts made out of recycling.
For online classes, what if you use your phone to film the videos (which you already have) and use Facebook to reach your customers (that’s free too).
Lastly, let’s look at how you can keep your costs low when you create and sell kits.
Here’s how you do it:
It's as simple as that. DON’T buy supplies before you get orders in.
Be smart and don’t sell your classes or kits once off. Get students to sign up per month or per term or create a subscription - people sign up with a recurring monthly payment similar to joining a gym or Netflix, and then they receive your special kit at their door on a monthly basis or attend classes on a weekly basis.
There is no better stability than knowing that you have x number of people subscribed and thus that you will get x amount of recurring income each month.
A business with subscriptions means having steady income every month. Having the peace of mind that a steady income brings is invaluable.
Which brings us to our last point…
It may be that you start with in person classes at your home. Before you know it a parent will ask you to host a birthday party for their kid or a workshop for a baby shower or a paint and sip event. Then before you know it you’ll start selling DIY kits for parties and start taking part in seasonal events such as Christmas parties and markets!
Our top tip would be: start with one thing (teaching in person, online or selling kits) and then, once your business is successful, expand to other things and let that snowball grow.
Your business will snowball and grow every single month.
Here are the top reasons WHY you should make your dream of starting a kids arts & crafts club a reality, now!
