Holiday Gift Guide Day 42 - Klutz Craft Kits Review and Giveaway

I like crafts, but I'm not exactly crafty. In the beginning I like to be told exactly what to do and how to do it. Then after I feel secure in my knowledge I like to branch out and try it my own way. Because of this Klutz kits are perfect for me!

For my guide I was sent three of the Klutz kits to review - The Wicked Cool Friendship Bracelets, The Brilliant Bead Rings, and the Pom Pom Monster Salon.

Kik has a lot of friends that she wants to get presents for this year.  Instead of buying a bunch of presents my husband and I decided that we were going to make all of them friendship bracelets and/or rings.  We haven't had time to do much more than flip  through the books, but it seems doable.  The instructions are detailed and seem easy to understand and I love all of the different options.

And I'm sure our bracelets will look exactly like this.

I was intrigued by the idea of the PomPom Monster Salon, so I decided that we should use them to create this years ornaments.

To make a PomPom Ball, all you need is yarn, the included measuring stick, scissors, and this handy little contraption.

After cutting, wrapping and tying you get a fun PomPom Ball.  Then you use your scissors and a bit of glue to style it into a monster.  Here are a few of our creations.

They were easy and fun.  The girls couldn't really help with the making of the Pom Pom Balls, but they loved designing the faces.  And yes we really did hang them on our Christmas Tree.

To Buy - The Kits retail for $16.99 each and are designed for kids age 8 and up.  I love that the kits come with everything you need to complete the craft or activity.  I also love that the kits aren't just for one time use.  When the materials are gone, you can buy your own yarn or beads (depending on the kit) and achieve the same results.

To Win - We are giving away one of the kits we reviewed to 3 different people.  That means one person will win the PomPom Monsters, One Person will win the Wicked Cool Friendship Bracelets, and One will win the Brilliant Bead Rings.
