Holiday Unboxing: Craft & Knit Kits


Hi, Guys, I’m Kristen and welcome to Studio
Knit! The holidays are here which means gift giving season is here. I recently purchased
three gift sets for children that I wanted to share with you. I thought they were really
good introductions to crafting, to knitting, yarn, looming. I thought that they would provide
really good inspiration for you not only to see if you’re interested in purchasing these
yourself. This is NOT sponsored, I went out to the stores and bought them with my own
money. But what they could serve for you is inspiration because we can totally put our
own little crafting kits together for gifts. And so I thought these three had some really
interesting ideas and maybe this will inspire you to put together some of your own craft
kits. So I have three different gift sets that I’d like to share with you. The first
one here is paper bag craft kit and this is for ages 4 and above. And it says that you
create your own forest friend puppet. This was purchased for $19.99 here in San Francisco
we have the Golden Gate National Parks Association and they have areas where they have gift shops
and that’s where we got this. So a couple of things about this one is that especially
because of the paper that’s included it has a real like higher designerly look to it.
But it’s still totally appropriate for kids. And, this is something that I can see that
as soon as you take it out of the box you can sit down open all the items and actually
immediately create something. I love that it provides everything that you need but you
also can let your imagination run wild and get really creative with it as well. In one
sitting create something really really cute that you’d be proud of. Moving on, we have
the yarn animals. I will have links to where to purchase these kits down below but again,
please while you’re watching this, I think this will really serve as inspiration to create
your own craft kits as gifts and you know what? Bonus! If you have any yarn or craft
supplies that you just haven’t gotten around to using, you can regift them into a craft
kit for a young child and feel really good about it. So, anyway, let’s look at the yarn
animals. So cute. Packaging on this is amazing. These are magnets right here as you open it
up and then you have all of your craft items on one side and then a book which is a really
extensive book. On different yarn animals. So, what it says on the cover here is includes
spool kit and pom pom tools, over 40 projects to learn, and everything you need to make
these four adorable critters. However, you can make these four adorable critters, or
which you have all of the supplies here. But there are so many really really cute other
little critters that you can make, as well. So, I think what they’re saying is that they’ve
given you everything that you need to make at least four. And really all you need is
to get some more yarn, maybe some more googly eyes, maybe some little like styrofoam balls
and some felt if you want to continue on. But, this book is definitely worth the price
of the whole kit in and of itself I feel. So, this at Costco was $14.99. This was also
for ages 4 and above. And I feel like this would be a really influential gift for a child
that is interested in yarn arts and knitting as a way to like sort of get them started,
ease them into it. Get them really inspired. And have them really grow as they create new
fanciful characters. And last is the Darn Yarn Super Set. Again, this was also purchased
at Costco and this was $19.99. I’ll have the links where you can purchase it elsewhere
below. And this has a whole lot going on. So this is an awesome gift to have under the
Christmas Tree, as a really fun gift to open and definitely has some really great starter
materials in it. Instructions. You know, I would say, a little Marketing Advice to the
company is that there’s a little bit of diversity on the cover, but what’s missing? There are
no boys. And it would actually benefit them to include this not being just for girls but
for all children. As we know, yarn arts is not only for girls and women, and there are
a lot of boys and some very manly men who are amazing knitters. So, that’s just a little
advice from me. So, I hope you had fun seeing me unboxing these yarn-y, crafty gift sets
with me. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. Here on my channel on Studio Knit I have some
really fun holiday themed projects coming up some tips and tricks. I also have a holiday
collaboration with my friends at Kin Community and just so much wonderful, festive holiday
cheer coming your way. So, if you haven’t already, please make sure to like this video
