McKenna Craft Kits

I am still finishing up today’s doll play activity, but thought I would kick off this fun giveaway first. EKSuccess makes the American Girl craft kit line and recently added a whole bunch of McKenna inspired sets to the range (See this post for all the different McKenna sets they have).  They sent me a box of the goodies to try out and to giveaway to our readers. I will be doing two giveaways – this one, and one at a later date.

  8. I love Mckenna! My favorite McKenna moment is when she sticks her landing at the qualifying meet in the movie. :)

  9. I dont have Mckenna. She is so beautiful and I wish I had picked one up.

It was my birthday this year, my parents TRICKED me into thinking that McKenna was SOLD OUT!!! I was SOOOO sad because I got her school outfit and not the doll her slef. What a bummer!!!! So then my dad said,”Hey, I think you left your bag or someting in the dining rooom.” So I walked into the dining room and almost tripped over a box. I yelled “Hey!!! What’s this?” My mom answered “Come in here with it!!!” So I did.As soon as I sat down I ripped open the packaging. On he front of the box I saw the words McKenna. I looked up at te face hole thingy and screamed “NO WAY!!! i THOUGT SHE WAS SOLD OUT!!! yYU GUYS SOOOOO TRICKED ME. THIS IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY OF MY LIFE!!!!! NO OFFENCE!!!!” I was so overjoyed.
