Top Ten Kids Gifts for Loom Knitting

Top Ten Kids Gifts for Loom Knitting


Here is my top ten kids gifts list for loom knitting fun. I love how easy this craft is for all ages but especially for kids. You can almost say that it’s fail-proof which is great for boosting confidence plus this is something they CAN do with little to no supervision. They get a tangible item that they can give as a family or charitable gift. Talk about a win / win situation.

A healthy alternative to television or video games. According to Gary Scholar, Health & Wellness Consultant to the employees of the American Hospital Association, “I have incorporated knitting classes in my Health & Wellness programs for employees because of the health benefits. I would like to see implemented at Children’s hospitals a program to teach sick children how to knit so they have something to keep their minds occupied and be proud of what they have made if they are in the hospital for an extended time,”

Let’s give our kids something beautiful and constructive to do, and please don’t focus only on the girls boys can knit too.

I will start my Top Ten Kids Gifts like the radio disc jockey do, from the bottom up. That way things are more interesting.

Knitting Doll Packing

Number 08 Knitting Doll

Knitting dolls sometimes called French Dolls are really just fancy spool looms. They go way back in history. This form knitting happens to be one of my favorite for kids. It naturally lends itself for small projects. A lot of my gift  choices lean towards this type of loom knitting. If you are wonder about the type of project that can be made with a spool looms just put the word in your browser, choose images and let the games begin. The list will blow you away.

Heads-up with this buy – You don’t get to choose the doll. But I think the pretty box the doll comes in makes up for the lack of choice.

Top Ten Kids ToysSome of the Dolls are just so beautiful they seem more like artwork then actual tools. Take the Djeco Spool loom as a great example. The detail in the head gear and dress are stunning. There is only one model but that one is definitely worth the expense.

It has that heirloom look and according to the reviews this is a high quality product.

Quick Knit Loom

Top Ten Kids Gifts

Kit Includes cool stuff

Number 05 Creativity For Kids Quick Knit Loom

Quick, knit and kids is a great combo. A lot of little ones don’t have long attention spans. You need to give projects that won’t take long but are fun and the results are tangible.

Among my favorite things about this product is the name brand. I know Crativity for Kids and they’re stuff is made with great care to meet the needs of its young audience. That is important because kids get excited about little things that don’t move us a bit. According to an Amazon review: three bunches of yarn (purple, light pink and bright pink), a large loom which can be used to make hats, purses and other similar items; a double-headed piece with small looms at either end which can be used to make purse handles, belts, etc.; a tassel-maker, two needles, some thread and a few accessories like buttons and beads for jazzing up your creations.

Now Heads-up: You must own a spool loom. Corking is another word for spool knitting.

Top Ten Kids GiftsNumber 01 


Heads-up ONLY 1 AVAILABLE at the time of this article. More of a collector’s item unless your baby just has to have one.

So ever since my daughter turned 3 I became a big time Barbie FAN. By the way, I use to hate Barbie before that time. I liked baby dolls as a child and felt something was wrong with Barbie because she looked like the adults but she was smaller than the babies. But now, well I just love to dress up a Barbie.

This gift brings together soooo many cool things ; The Barbie Brand, Looms, Glitter and Yarn. Just the word Glitter makes me happy.

Here is a 10-year old Loom Knitter in Action

Jackie had been loom knitting for a couple of years when she made this video for her classmates. She is a big advocate for kids loom knitting for charity and she wanted to motivate and courage them. I think she did a marvelous job. She is a good friend and I’m really proud of her,

Please share this video with your young ones. Watching the video in its entirety may help them to feel confident that loom knitting is doable even for young children.

If you and your child decide to knit for charity then contact your local hospital, homeless shelter, church, temple or synagogue. You can also check out the list of charities on this website: Click Here

    Hi! I am loving your posts but I am looking for a book on loom knitting for my daughter. Do you know of any geared towards kids? She has the Creativity for Kids kit and adores it, but is looking for new ideas and patterns. I would like to get her a book for Christmas to go with some new yarns. She is nearly 7 but reads like an adult. Thanks for any suggestions you can offer!

    • Denise Canela September 19, 2015 at 8:29 am

      Hey Nicole, no…but I would tell you that as long as the pattern is on a round loom (single rake) and says for beginners she should be able to handle it. Most of the books in the market right now are NOT going to work well for her… even the ones that say for beginners. Sorry… wish I could say differently. I would suggest getting her, her own profile on Ravelry. She can have a library and most of the patterns are FREE. You can go on the groups and ask for Kid Friendly patterns – I will try to do that for you but it will have to be for October – working on Breast Cancer Awareness for the rest of this month.
      Big Hugs for you and your baby girl – THANKS for the question – I WILL defiantly work on a post and video on this subject.
