They are some of the most difficult people on you list to shop for. They don’t need anything, they want “something” but aren’t sure what to ask for. They are stuck somewhere between child and teenager. They are a combination of the sweetest of sweet and the most challenging of all, they are the tween! What will you be buying for your tween daughter (or son) this Christmas? Well thanks to the people of Crayola, I have a few ideas for you!
First up, the Beadola Charm Maker!
Targeted at the 8 plus crowd, this one is going to be a hit! The easy to use Crayola-Beadola Charm Maker uses Air-Dry clay that allows your child (or you) to create detailed beads of your very own! Invite a friend over and get creative! (this would be a great birthday gift too!) The kit comes with everything you need to make over 90 beads and encourages your child to add their own colours and embellishments. The kit includes two bracelet chains as well as 25 gems to add some sparkling finishing touches. We do like those sparkles!
So what is a Sketch Wizard? Only the coolest thing ever for the budding artist in your house! It helps your 8- 12 year old to draw exactly what they see! The Sketch Wizard accurately reflects 2-D, 3-D objects and even images from mobile devices on to paper so they are easier for kids to trace and draw! How fun is that!
Widescreen Light Designer
Let your child bring their art to life with the Widescreen Light Designer! Scribble, doodle, and draw until your heart is content and then bring your original art to life by sliding the action button. This illuminates your designs and allows your child to choose from seven different lighting effects to show off what they have created. It includes six markers and is appropriate for children ages 6 years and older.
Oh my goodness do I know someone will like this one! You can create your own custom paint colours! This interactive kit provides everything you need to create unique paint colours. It uses a base paint and then some ingenious paint strips to customize your colours! This kit also includes an easy fold up design for simple storage and clean up! Check out how unique this system is! Great for one of those super cold and snowy afternoons! Just add some imagination and maybe some hot chocolate.
I predict you will have so much fun with this it’ won’t be long until you will need the Paint Maker Refill Pack!
