So many times I’ve spent hours working on a craft with my kids, only to quietly throw it away after they go to bed. (Shh, don’t tell them.) Sometimes it’s more about the process than the end result around here–crafting for the sake of crafting. But on the other hand, these very cool stencil kits for kids from CMP favorite Yellow Owl Workshop yield some crafts I might actually want to keep around.
The kits include a cotton tea towel or tote bag, the stencils, and a set of markers in three decidedly cute themes: fruits and veggies, ice cream and lollipops, or cats and rainbows. (What, no alien robots?) Once you create your masterpiece, you can use the stencils again and again on t-shirts, notebooks, teacher gifts, stationary, little brothers, you name it.
My 7-year-old daughter and her friends would go crazy over these stencils. They especially love to craft hen they’re making something they can actually use themselves. Because that’s so grown up.
