Educational YouTube Channels that Inspire Creativity

Here are the best educational YouTube channels we could find that inspire kids to create.

Are you looking for online activities to help keep your kids occupied? Do you worry that too much screen time will turn your kids’ brains to mush?!

The good news is that, in moderation, some YouTube channels actually help get the creative juices flowing!

These are the best channels we found to get kids (and adults!) excited about tinkering, writing, drawing, and crafting.

Any activities in these videos must be undertaken with a suitable adult completing their own risk assessment and supervising their children at all times. Some are dangerous, purely inspirational, and should not be attempted at all!
