Crayola Creations Thread Wrapper

Crayola Creations Thread Wrapper

Fall 2015 Toys
Ages: 8 - 12 yrs.
Manufacturer: Crayola, LLC
Price: $24.99

The Crayola Creations Thread Wrapper, a crafting set for children aged eight years and up, includes a unique motorized threading machine, re-threader attachment, six spools of thread (blue, purple, green, orange, cream, and white), two empty spools, one red fabric marker, and illustrated instructions. Children can insert virtually any object 1.15 inches or less in diameter into the machine to have it quickly and thoroughly wrapped in a variety of colored threads.

When my daughter first opened this, she was so excited and enjoyed it so much that I was finding thread-wrapped objects everywhere: pens, pencils, brushes, forks (yes, I said forks), and even her toothbrush! All kidding aside, however, the tread wrapper is a fun way to encourage children to recycle and upcycle items that they no longer like or use.
