American Girl Crafts Historical Kits for Girls

american girl crafts

I love the American Girl craft supplies and kits you can get at Michael’s – they are perfect for last minute gifts for AG loving girls, perfect for rainy day projects and are just super cute (see our review of the apron kit and the tote bag kit). I recently saw that they added craft kits inspired by the American Girl Historical Characters like Kit, Julie, Kaya, Josefina, Felicity and Cecile and Marie Grace. The projects are based on handicrafts popular during the different time periods of the historical characters and pass on traditions such as weaving, embroidery, painting, and string art. The crafts have been updated with fresh, modern styling that girls of today will love.

Make paper flower decorations just like American Girl® historical characters Cecile Rey™ and Marie-Grace Gardner™ with a wreath sure to bring cheer wherever it is hung. American Girl Crafts Wreath Kit, Cecile and Marie-Grace Paper Flower
