    My mom is an avid knitter (you should see the scarf, mittens, and ear warmer she made me for Christmas), and I have aspirations to learn someday, too. Knitting always seemed to be a complicated and hard hobby, but this book breaks it down step-by-step so that even someone like me can understand (and succeed)! Best of all, the book comes with all the supplies you need to get started. Included in this kit is a yarn needle, a crochet hook, two knitting needles, two buttons, and 200 yards of yarn (it should be enough to complete most, but not all, of the projects). First you need to wind the yarn into a ball, and then you need to tie your slipknot on your knitting needle. From there you will be instructed how to "cast on," knit and purl, and count your stitches to get the desired width. You're even instructed on how to buy more yarn, how to pick up a dropped stitch, what to do if you create too many stitches, how to sew seams, how to weave in your yarn, and how to block off your work. Whew…that's a lot to learn! You'll first create a practice piece until you feel comfortable with all the steps. Then you're ready to take a stab at making the six different projects outlined step-by-step in this guide. You can make a cell phone sock, a skinny scarf, a purse, a hat, a sunglass case, and a pocket purse. What a great way to learn a valuable skill! - elise

    I have to say, I've always found crocheting easier than knitting, but with the help of this kit, it was easy to learn how to knit trendy scarves, hats, belts, purses, and more! The kit contains both a large knitting loom (7 ¼") and a smaller double-sided knitting loom (4 ¾" x 2 ½"); 90 yards of high quality, brightly colored, thick yarn; a knitting hook; thread and needles; a tassel maker; and a small assortment of buttons and beads to decorate the final products. Although the project instructions are a bit lacking in that it focuses on how to use the provided materials to make one particular project (a knit hat), the skills you will learn can easily be expanded towards other projects of your choosing.

    Want to make some really fashionable jewelry? Then this kit is for you! There are over 500 beads, 6 colors of stretchy cord, and a knitting spool and crochet hook. The spool is unique in that it stands on end and the other end has 4 prongs in which to 'knit' or wrap your thread. You learn to add beads as you are wrapping on the spool and you learn how to add beads to crocheting also. With this you design your beautiful bracelets (for wrists or ankles), rings (for fingers or toes) and necklaces; even head bands if you so desire. The step by step instructions are easy to follow and the end results are just gorgeous! There are some very unique pieces to make and once you learn how to do this, you can create some original pieces also. ~ Phyllis

    Reminiscent of the cooperative game “Harvest Time,” but with a memory aspect, this game pits all players against a hungry wolf. The wolf is prowling the pastures, so players must work together to return all the farm animals to their barn before the wolf gets them! To do this, players take turns flipping over tokens. If the token shows a farm animal, the animal must be returned to one of four barns. Each time a wolf token is turned up, the wolf comes one step closer to the barns, so it’s a race to not only discover the farm animals and bring them in for the night, but to also avoid the wolf tokens! Play time is about ten minutes for 1-4 players.

    Dog-lovers will beg for this kit! Using the included pom-pom maker, comb, glue, accessories, and a pair of scissors (not included), transform a ball of yarn into man's best friend. The 55-page instruction booklet explains how to make 15 different dog breeds using just four colors of yarn. There is enough yarn included to make four puppies, but you can always buy more at a local craft store until you have a whole pack of pom-pom puppies!

    Making potholders is a great introduction to weaving, and a fun, relaxing and creative activity too. And the results are very useable, which we love! Both of these kits are designed to last many potholders, with sturdy metal looms and metal weaving hooks. The metal loom pegs slant outward to prevent loops from slipping off, which is especially helpful for young kids! The loops included with each kit are 100% cotton, and custom-sized to fit the loom, which is often not the case in less expensive kits. The instructions included offer instructions on starting and finishing potholders, along with design ideas and suggestions for additional projects using the basic potholder. This kit includes enough cotton loops to make two potholders.

    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
