Our daughter is at the age where she loves to learn how to do new things. She loves creating stories, crafting, cooking, and learning other new skills. Helping her develop new skills is something we really want to encourage, because she is so eager to learn. There are some areas we are well versed in, so we can easily teach her how to do those things. Yet, there are other areas, like crafts, that we learn alongside her.
Finding kits that teach how to do or make something that is actually worthwhile is not always easy. Discovering kits that make something worth keeping upon completion is definitely a task. Factor costs into the equation and it’s even more difficult. This summer, Kids Crafts sent us craft kits for girls ages 7 to 11. We tried out the Paper Clip Kit and we also tried the Climb like Amanda Empowering Journaling Kit.
Our daughter loved making the paper clip kit. The paperclip kit had such girly fun decorative pieces to make the clips with. She really enjoyed making the paperclips then gifted them to each of her friends. Her friends loved them! The kit had a brochure with a business building guide for her to sell the paper clips if she wished. While we decided that we would not be selling the paperclips, it gave her ideas for other ways to make money. She is really excited to start earning money and building a small business and we credit this spark of entrepreneurialism to the Kids Craft projects.
The other kit we tried out was the Climb like Amanda Empowering Journaling Kit. Our daughter loves to write stories. Yet, she has not big on journaling her day. As a homeschooling mom, I encourage journaling as it not only helps someone become a better writer, but it also improves handwriting skills.
The empowering journal kit comes with a beautiful notebook, cute paperclips, fun stickers, a glittery gold pen, and an adorable daisy bookmark. While the cute items won’t solve all of the problems trying to get a child to journal, it sure helps. She has been so excited to use the journal, which is half the battle when trying to get a child to create a positive habit through this daily exercise.
Overall, I would say the Kids Craft kits for girls are super fun. The Kids Craft website shows so many different crafts and fun things that any girl would like. It also offers explanations as to additional benefits such as, “In this guide, she’ll learn how to start a business, design products, advertise, and sell them. Show your girl how rewarding it can be to put her crafting skills to work and start earning money!” I think putting Kids Craft on a wishlist for any girl 7-11 would be appropriate based upon their likes. It has a great price point too! The hardest part of selecting a Kids Craft Kit would be to pick just one.
Which kit would you select?
