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.

These just came out so you will need to check your local Barnes&Noble, Amazon, and limited independent stores or at AmericanGirlCrafts.com. Our local store did not have them yet, but hopefully soon. I like all of the kits but think Julie’s looks like the most fun to start with.
