Like adults, small children will love a good pair of scissors. Our bee scissors are populair by children with age 4-8 years. As they are so cute, we also spotted the odd adult buying them for themselves ;-).

Toddlers may also like our handy total control scissors. With 3 finger positions it will be easier to cut precise lines.

All our scissors come with a handy canvas bag to store them.

6. Open woven Aida, the easiest fabric to learn cross stitch

Teach kids how to cross stitch on big open woven canvas. They will love it. On big canvas you can quickly see results and the larger holes make it easier to stitch that perfect x shape.

Our 6 count aida fabric has 6 holes per inch, or 2,4 per cm. It’s great for blowing up patterns.

As kids get older, and as their fine motorics improve you can switch to finer woven fabrics like Aida 8, Aida 11, or Aida 14
