Knot a Hat-n-Scarf

Sometimes life can be frustrating for creative little kids. Knitting needles and crochet hooks can prove unwieldy in the hands of seven and eight-year-olds, but that doesn’t mean the urge to create isn’t fully present! All children need to know how to do to create the lovely scarf and hat projects outlined in this kit is to tie a simple knot. That’s it. And the projects come out looking like something you might find at your local craft fair! Fun felt flowers and shapes are included so your little budding designer can personalize her creations. A brilliant introduction to the world of crafting. (Alex Toys, $23.99)
