Klutz Books {Giveaway}

For over 15 years, I've admired Klutz books and activity kits.  Having worked in retail much of my college years and a little beyond, I often came across their clever books, complete with instructions and materials to make everything from woven potholders to face painting.  Because of my artistic inclinations, I'm a huge fan of their products and am eager to purchase them for birthdays and holiday gifts as my son and his friends get a little older.

I recently got to try out two of their newest additions, Capsters bottle cap art and the Window Art Classic book/activity kit.  While these are above my son's age, I certainly had fun playing around with these.
The Window Art kit allows you to create stained-glass type of re-stickable window art.  It comes with tubes of gel paints and easy to follow instructions for creating designs that you can stick to windows, shower doors, car windows and other surfaces, leaving no residue.
The instructions in the book are simple to follow, whether you want to trace the many designs given or create your own.
The Capsters activity kit is equally amazing.  I've seen lots of resin and bottle cap art projects of late, and this kit makes it so simple to make all kinds of crafts while recycling bottle caps.  So much better than throwing them out!
It comes with the glaze, some starter caps, and little charms to embed in the glaze.  I imagine it would be fun for kids to scavenge around the house looking for stuff to "preserve" in a bottle cap (moms, hide those diamond earrings!).
These bottle cap creations can be transformed into items like belts, jewelry, binders and for embellishing other items.
Hours of fun, I tell you.  I just love Klutz.  They're perfect for holiday gifts for all kind of kids, and this art teacher whole-heartedly approves. 

There are some other fun options available from Klutz, including the Book of Paper Airplanes
We're already fans of paper airplanes around here, but imagine the possibilities with just a piece of paper!
The Headbands and Hairstyles kit would also be a treat for many girls this Christmas.  I love gifts that spark creativity and engage kids for more than a few minutes.
 
I would have loved a kit like this as a creative little girl.
Klutz is definitely on my gift list this holiday season.  And until December 17th, you can get 25% off all orders over $50 using the coupon code KZ25.  Offer cannot be combined.
WIN IT!
Klutz is offering 1 lucky K and K reader
