As a crocheter who learned at a very young age, I just WISH someone had bought me one of these fantastic kits!
When looking at crochet kits for children, I’m looking at a few factors: easy, fun, educational, fun, engaging, and most importantly, fun! Keep in mind that these kits are designed for children at least 10 years of age.
My all-time favorite kit is the Woobles kit. This one is perfect for the older kid who can follow along with video tutorials. Not only will your child end up with an adorable time, but they will also have a blast learning with excellently produced video instructions.
Of course, with the age of the internet and social media, the virality of certain projects will change over time. But currently, children (and adults) of all ages are OBSESSED with crochet bees! This kit provides everything your child needs to create their own little bee.
