Creativity for Kids Quick Knit Loom
(Creativity for Kids $19.99)
A big round loom that is like your old horse rein spool loom...only so much better! Instead of the long and almost useless rope of knitted wool, this giant loom produces a "tube" shaped piece of knitting that can be turned into a hat kids can knit and wear! This is one of those new twists on a classic craft. The kit comes with rainbow colored yarn and two soft fuzzy pom-poms that can be attached. This is one of those projects that takes days of work. It will not be done in one sitting—unless kids sit for far too long. This kind of non-instant gratification is a good thing, a way of learning that sticking to a project has its rewards. The work is repetitive and requires following directions and using fine motor skills. Left over yarn can be used to make a hot cup cover with a heart shaped felt patch. The loom can also be reused with yarn you may have from other projects. 7 and up.
