Crafty parents – we know you’re out there with your embroidery floss and glue guns, waiting for the day that your kids will be old enough to start crafting alongside you. In the meantime, Nico and Zoe has the perfect little project to introduce your child to needlework.
The Wren Purse sewing kit from London-based Sparrowkids is designed for little fingers, with big bright felt shapes (recycled!) and pre-punched holes. Bonus points for the plastic needle – no need to worry about puncture wounds or emergency tetanus shots.
When the kids are finished, they’ve got a cute new shoulder bag to show for their effort. Which, as we all know, is infinitely more useful than a latch-hook rug. –Julie
