Linkt Hoops and Loops
(Neat Oh! $19.99)
Our 12-year old tester gave this a 10, the highest possible score in our rating system! It’s a new craft kit that will make 20 pairs of earrings by linking together the metal and silicone loops. The kit includes totally clear instructions as well as online videos if more visual instructions work best for your young jewelry maker. This kind of kit gives fine motor skills a workout along with visual-spatial skills. They are not difficult, but like all craft kits they require patience and stick-to-it-ive-ness— important skills for learning tasks that are not instantaneous. This is one of several kits from Linkt that end up with wearable finished products that tweens especially like to wear or give as gifts. 8 & up.
