Crafts for Kids
Felting, knitting, kumihimo braiding, toy making and other crafting projects for children
I'd recommmend starting with any of the felting kits, or the knitting spool and "Corking" book. By second grade age, your child is probably ready to knit and do simple sewing projects. Our knitting book and yarn kit is a good start - offering explicit knitting directions, project ideas, and a starter pack of yarns.
