EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Have a very crafty Christmas with two holiday-themed arts and crafts kits from Faber-Castell's Creativity for Kids line. The Color-Changing String Art Tree lets kids create a tree entirely from gold string and even light it up with a battery-powered light. The Sweater Ornaments kit comes with craft supplies for decorating three mini Christmas sweaters to hang from your tree. Each kit is sold separately.

With the String Art Tree set, you're basically wrapping glue-covered string around a plastic tree form, and then letting it dry before removing the tree form and revealing your string tree. There are rhinestones and a tree topper for decorating the tree, and the tree sits on top of a color-changing tea light for a pretty glow effect. 

For Sweater Ornaments, adhere the decorative pieces onto the mini fleece sweaters however you want to create decked-out holiday ornaments. Mini clothes hangers are included for hanging the sweaters from your Christmas tree. 

Is It Fun?

These kits make a fun and festive activity to do during the holiday season. With both kits, kids are making usable holiday decor, and they'll love being able to display their own creations around the house. These are really cute kits that kids who are fans of arts and crafts will enjoy.

Who It’s For

Both of these kits are for crafty kids, but more specifically, Sweater Ornaments is for ages 6 and up, and String Art Tree is for ages 7 and up.
