Coloring just got a lot cooler with Y’Art. The Y’Art Craft Kit, from Kahootz Toys, offers children a whole new way to create textile art by coloring with yarn. A Grip-N-Stick Y’Artboard holds the yarn in place while your child fills in numbered areas with colored yarn.

How To Become A Y’Artist!Y’Art Craft Kit

To get started: Unbundle the yarn and guide one end through the pen, then pull out the other end to make a tail. Press the threaded pen tip against the Y’Art board so that it sticks.

You can find the colors numbered on the back of the box or get creative and use your own color pattern for the design.

Press hard on the Y’Art Pen like you would a crayon, making sure that you keep in contact with the pre-printed canvas. When you are finish one area, cut the yarn and press the end to the board to secure it. You can color in any pattern you like be it swirl, or zig zag pattern.

Then choose a new yarn color, thread it through the pen and continue in a new area. It is best if you start with the small areas first. You can also use your fingers as a guide for the yarn instead of using the Y’Art Pen. You will need a good pair of scissors to cut the yarn.

Once your Y’Art board is complete,  the back of the box your kit came in acts as a frame. Cut out the picture frame from the back of the box and tape it to the Y’Art board.

The World of Y’Art

Y'Art craft kitEach Y’Art craft kit comes with an 8×10 inch Grip-N-Stick Y’Artboard,  a Y’Art Pen, 33 yards of premium yarn, an instruction guide, and a cut-out display frame. The regular Y’Art craft kit is available in five different designs:Unicorn,  Pug puppy, Flamingo, Llama and Narwhal.

While Y’Art, which rymes with smart is recommended for children age eight years and up, children as young as six will enjoy this fun craft. With Y’Art, there’s no worrying about coloring inside the lines or making a mistake. Y‘Art is opps-proof.

If you make a mistake, simply lift up the yarn and reposition it. Miss P  who is just six and a half had lots of fun making her Y’Art. Overall we think that  Y’Art would make the perfect Christmas gift for children who love crafts. It would be just as popular with boys as it would be with girls.
