Earlier today, above the Bryant Park Hotel on the 25th floor, EK Success Brands, one of the country's leading craft companies, hosted its second annual "Crafting with Style" event. Here's a peak at some of the coolest products we got to play with  -- and loved for their no hassle clean-up!

 

American Girl Crafts

For ages 8-12, these all-in-one kits feature various projects based on the American Girl historical characters. The crafts are based on actual projects that were popular during the time periods of the American Girl characters, including string art, weaving, and painting. The kit based on character Kaya, a Native American girl, includes bracelet- and accessories-making projects. For more information, visit American Girl Crafts.

Remember these from your childhood? Now, Perler Beads have a 3-D aspect and offer a digital component that allows you to transform (for free!) a personal photo into a Perler Bead design template. This educational craft helps children develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and assists with color and shape recognition. To create templates from your own photos, visit Perler Snap Shots and for more information, visit Perler Beads.
