This felting kit makes for a fun craft project, sans knitting needles or complicated sewing patterns. Just soak the wool, then roll or shape it into a purse or hat. The instruction booklet is clearly written, with great photos to help along the process. There's loads of room for creativity with this project, and when she's finished, your tween will have two cute accessories to keep her warm! Parental help may be needed for some of these steps, but craft kits like these makes for wonderful shared experiences. (Harrisville Designs, $19.95)
