Description

There’s nothing like taking a common object—hardware straight from the tool chest, for example—and making something extraordinary with it. Toolbox Jewelry is the first ever hardware jewelry kit to show kids how to make amazing industrial jewelry. This jewelry book provides shiny nuts, star washers, fasteners, cord, satin ribbon, beads, and earring wires, plus 60 pages of clear, simple instructions. Transform these practical thingamajigs into super-chic jewelry, and spur kids to create their own designs from other everyday elements. It’s the first father-daughter craft kit, and the perfect combination of functional and fabulous.

Comes with: 60 page book, 180+ nuts, washers and fasteners, three colors of cord, earring wires, beads, two colors of ribbon, resealable storage trays, slide-out work surface

Activities and outcomes:
Children read how-to books with supplies to make jewelry and art, fold paper dolls, and play games. Fun, sometimes goofy, art kits and activities for kids foster creativity and improve motor skills, coordination and a kid sense of humor.

Why we like Klutz:
- Inventive, hopelessly goofy, multi-sensory books
- Kids treasure these creative and funny DIY projects
- Fun activities to share and impress their friends
- Heirloom quality Star Wars thumb doodles and Shrinky Dinks

About:
Klutz was incorporated in 1977 by three friends from Stanford University. They began by selling sidewalk juggling lessons along with a trio of no-bounce bean bags. John Cassidy, the English major of the group, put the instructions in book form and titled it Juggling for the Complete Klutz.

"It really was a failed scam," explains Cassidy, who remains the creative force of the company. "Our dream was to do a book on juggling, sell a bazillion in a couple of days, buy an island and retire. After a year of steady, unspectacular sales, we found ourselves staring down the barrel of a career."

Today, how-to books from Klutz come packaged with the tools of their trade (from juggling cubes to face paints), and are designed for doing, not just reading. "We think people learn best through their hands, nose, feet, mouth and ears. Then their eyes," Cassidy says.
