Knitting Toys for Girls
Great knitting toys for girls who love knitting or want to learn how to knit.
Knitting is a fun hobby for kids. Although both boys and girls can learn to knit it's usually girls that are interested in this hobby.
Knitting is a creative hobby that can give girls a feeling of achievement and success when they make something useful or beautiful. It's also a traditional hobby that can give kids an interest beyond technology and the internet.
Learn to Knit
The Shure Learn to Knit set and book is the traditional knitting gift for a girl. It includes:
- A 40-page full-color book
- 6 brightly colored bundles of yarn
- Size 8 wooden knitting needles
- A wooden crochet hook
- A plastic sewing needle
The illustrated instruction book means you don't have to be a knitter yourself to introduce your daughter to this hobby. (You can even learn to knit too.)
Girls Knitting Projects
The Chunky and Funky Scarf Beginner's Knitting Kit and Knit A Hello Kitty Hat Kit are two cute knitting projects for girls.
The Chunky and Funky scarf won Child Magazine's "Best Toys of the Year Award and the Parents' Choice "Approved" Award. It has chunky wooden needles and fat yarn. This makes it easy for a child to learn how to knit a scarf and matching hat. It includes the yarn, needles and easy-to-follow instructions that they will need to create the scarf and hat.
The Hello Kitty Hat includes about 50g of Dark Pink and 40g of Pale Pink yarn. One pair of 6mm wooden knitting needles. Pre-cut fabric and detailed instructions to create the hat. The finished hat fits girls with a head size up to 23 inches in circumference.
Classic Knitting Loom
The Creativity For Kids Quick Knit Loom is an easy "knitting" kit that doesn't need any knitting skills to make great stuff. This means kids can start making things really fast.
The kit includes a large circle loom, two sided hand loom and a tassel maker as well as yarn and decorative buttons.
Your daughter can make things like hats and scarves without having to actually knit them in the usual way. You can also buy extra wool at your local craft store to use with this kit to make sure the fun and creativity lasts.
Kids Knitting Books
Knitting books for kids are a great idea, especially if you already know how to knit. If you're a knitter you can be a great help to your daughter while she does the fun patterns in these two books. But if you aren't a knitter the books have clear instructions so are still worth a look.
These two books are the best available picks for kids who are into knitting great stuff.
If you're a knitter don't forget to buy the some special kids knitting needles to go with the project books.
I was taught on normal adult knitting needles and found it extra difficult. So I think the special knitting needles for kids are a great idea.
How To...Knitting DVD for Kids
In this DVD kids teach kids how to knit. The DVD also includes a storyteller with stories that go along with the steps of knitting to make it easier and fun for kids.
The DVD is interactive. Kids knit along with the DVD which automatically pauses until they have finished the skill being taught and press play to continue.
Very skilled knitters who aren't too sure how to teach a child to knit have found this a really helpful and enjoyable DVD.
