If you are looking to pass along your love of cross stitch to the next generation, these kits by Moon Picnic are the perfect answer. Made of high-quality beech wood and non-toxic paint, they have big holes for stitching that are just the right size for little hands.
Each kit features an animal friend - a bear, cat, or bunny - that is in need of a warm sweater. The kit comes with two colors of 100% wool yarn and and a booklet of suggested designs. The stitching is done with a large, blunt plastic needle.
Children can choose from one of the suggested sweater designs, or make up their own. Yarn colors in the kit vary, but you can also use any worsted weight yarn from your stash to supplement the color palette.
When finished, the animals can be displayed on a shelf, or used in all kinds of pretend play. Best of all, they are reusable! Just pull out the stitches and start again for endless cross stitch fun.
These critters are sure to make a cross stitch lover out of any young spirit. Get yours here.
