(Creativity for Kids $14.99)
Learning to embroider needs to start with something simple but special. This Banner with a puffy cloud and rainbow will likely please beginners. The letters are preprinted and easy enough for the young needle-crafter. It comes with stick on rhinestones for the rainbow, sun and bird stickers, and threads and pom-poms to hand from the cloud. Once it’s all decorated, use the dowel and yard to hang it. This comes with a darning needle, glue, adhesive squares, needle threader and instructions. With a functional needle, this is a craft that will need adult supervision, especially if there are younger children in the home. Marked 7 and up. We think some 7s will be able to do this, but it’s probably a better choice for older 8s and 9s.
Ages: Older Early School, Tweens
