It can be hard to find quality, not-neon-and-rubber-bands craft kits for girls in the ten to twelve age range (not that we don’t love Rainbow Looms!), but these three projects are sweeter than tea and crumpets.

The Tea Time Cakes Pincushion Sewing Kit pictured above includes everything needed to make three delicious-looking tea cakes, including felt, thread, needle, pins, scissors, and stuffing. Real cake, sadly, is not included.
This London Bus Pincushion Sewing Kit is also a self-contained afternoon craft that includes everything in an adorable traveling case. Are you catching the theme? One stop craft shopping! Bonus: If she’s into Harry Potter, this could totally be the Night Bus.
And we love this dainty Vintage Purse Sewing Kit, too. Timeless, useful, and a unique way to store that smartphone she got for her birthday.
Whether you need a birthday gift that isn’t spackled in peace signs, glitter, and unrealistic doll bodies or you want something special to keep in the craft closet for those dull and rainy, oh-so-British afternoons, these are a great way to encourage focus, care, and a great outcome. I recommend delivering the craft kit with those chocolate biscuits the Queen Mother loves so much.-Delilah
