Remember knitting with one of these when you were a little girl? I do!
This classic wooden knitting toy makes yarn "snakes," which can then be coiled and fashioned into necklaces, purse straps, baskets, rugs and more.
The wooden knitting needle fits neatly inside the mushroom when not in use.
While some younger children may have the necessary fine motor skills for this activity, I recommend it for ages 6 and up.
