2012 Award
Creativity for Kids Mask Making Kit
( $20 Score:)

With plastic mask bases, full face and smaller eye shape, kids can create 4-5 different masks with special plaster wrap. The kit comes with a variety of items for decorating the masks with feathers, tissue paper, paint ribbons, glitter and glue. This is apt to be a bit of a messy craft, so protect the surface with the plastic sheet, gloves and other items that come with the kit. You may want to add some newspaper as well. There will be a waiting time for the plaster strips to dry before the decorating can begin. Adult supervision is strongly recommended. That said, working with the plaster makes for an interesting craft experience. 7 & up.

2010 Award
Crayola Pop Art Pixies Tatumís Decoupage Glass Plates
(Crayola $19.99 Score:)

Two square plates and one round glass plate come with colored art paper, small images, 2 oz. of decoupage glue, paintbrush and instructions. Keep in mind, the plates are glass and breakable, so these are to be used with caution and not for younger kids. You do not have to use the images in the kit if you prefer to make a more sophisticated personalized design. In fact we suggest using found materials from magazines, wrapping paper, photographs and any number of other paper. This is a simple and easy introduction to an art form without a big price tag.

Finished creations must be hand-washed. They might make good gifts for Gram or Aunt or teacher. 8-12.
The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Again--there's reading involved along with dexterity and this is the kind of craft that can grow into a hobby that you might want to join in on.
