    Introduce your younger students to the world of electricity in this hands-on, fun kit by Klutz. Mold 15 different clay projects using 5 colors of clay, 20 LEDS, a battery pack (requires 4AA batteries, not included), and over 50 punch-out paper pieces. You will get four colors of conductive clay blue, green, orange, and black; and one block of white, insulating clay. The conductive clay allows electrons to flow through, and the insulating clay is firmer and doesn't allow the flow of electrons. The kit includes a 52-page book with numbered instructions with illustrations for each clay project. Make a Rocket, UFO, Flower, Shooting Star, Jack-O-Lantern, Flashlight, Cupcake, Snowman, Astronaut, Robot, Night Window, Police Car, and Dragon all with light-up features. The book also includes a list of other things you might need for the projects (household items), LED care, cleaning up, powering up the battery pack, clay shaping basics, how to use the paper punch-outs, and explanations of simple circuitry. Jess, Ramsey, and Gemma made the dragon, and he was adorable with his light-up eyes. I think the amazing thing is that you can use clay to teach basics of circuitry in a way that really makes sense to young learners. ~ Donna

    Sigh, those creative children who forever want a new bedspread, new pillows, new paint, new curtains and such can cost you a fortune in time and materials. Never mind about the holes in your walls from changing their minds! Turn that creative bent into a thoughtful (an inexpensive) project where they get to design the bedroom of their dreams. You may even find it is motivation to earn some money and learn how to paint to make their dream a reality at some point! This kit from Klutz provides 5 fold-out practice rooms to design using over 300 punch out decorating pieces and patterned papers. Use the tape sheet (included) as you group the colors, patterns and accessories you want in your room onto a plan board of some kind or put them directly onto the room settings. There is also a 78 page book of instruction and inspiration. Design a loft look a la Boho chic, go soft and floral in a vintage style room with weathered finishes, or play with a stark black and white graphic wall with pops of color for a modern fab flair! You have loads of throw pillows to choose from in fun and trendy styles and colors. How about a chandelier? Why not, it's a dream room after all. Parents, just be prepared for a sales pitch from your child who is now armed with a concrete design for his/her bedroom! I have to say, the designs are pretty girly, but I think any future designer would have a ball with this cool kit. ~Sara

     This simple technique reminds me of a combination of rug hooking and making PlushCraft® pillows – creating soft texture with yarn loops, but by using a special tool to push the yarn through the burlap backing. The tool is like an awl with a hollow handle. Thread the yarn through, punch it through the fabric to create a yarn loop. More yarn will thread through the handle so you can keep going until it’s time to switch colors. The tool is notched so you create evenly sized loops every time.
      Everything you need to make a 9x9” pillow is included: 5 colors of super soft chenille yarn (pink, yellow, purple, green, and white), burlap, stuffing, felt, embroidery floss, a needle, 8 design templates, and a reusable frame and punch tool. Although the kit only includes supplies for one pillow, you could easily purchase additional supplies and create an endless amount of pillows. Make the first one for yourself, then give the rest as gifts to friends and family! – Laura

    This isn't your grandma's embroidery sampler! Learn to stitch adorable, personalized pieces that fit in mini embroidery hoop pendants. Follow the simple directions in the 48 page, full color book to transfer a design onto one of the 10 squares of fabric, fit it in the pocket-sized plastic embroidery hoop, then stitch your design with the two needles and 8 colors of embroidery floss. When you're done, snap it into one of the three reusable plastic frames, then hang it on the ball-chain necklace. It was a little tricky to trim the fabric after it was in the frame, so a pair of very sharp, very tiny scissors (like nail scissors) would be helpful to have, and the hoops could easily be super-glued together if you wanted to make your design permanent. Sure to be a hit with your crafty teen, and the multiple hoops mean they could be shared between siblings! – Laura

    The Klutz team decided it was time to see what they could do to enhance the basic LEGO® brick construction sets. After getting the go-ahead from LEGO®, they came up with a collection of LEGO® contraptions that "clanked, clunked, rolled, spun, flopped over or launched things". Newly revised, this edition now features 16 "high-performance" projects, each of which can be made with only the LEGO® parts included. While the old version featured 10 projects and required additional LEGOs® for some projects, this revision contains six more projects and is packaged with more than 100 LEGO® elements! So even if you don't own any additional LEGOs®, you can build a LEGO® Launcher, a Supercharged Speedster, or a Squeezeclaw Grabber. The step-by-step assembly instructions are are largely non-verbal and include detailed illustrations of the contraption in progress.
