Klutz Pom-Pom Monster Salon Review + Giveaway

The girls & I recently received the Klutz Pom-Pom Monster Salon to review.
I've said this before: WE. LOVE. KLUTZ.
And, I think this is my favorite Klutz book to date.

After school, Zoey & I started playing around with the yarn, making pom-pom monsters. As always, the instructions are super easy to understand & the kit comes with everything you need (minus scissors) to make lots of monsters.

We whipped out 2 pom-pom monsters pretty quickly. I gave mine to a sick little Pazely who was napping in her room.

The kit comes with a handy contraption that easily allows you to make pom-poms. Click HERE to view a 48-second video that shows you how the pom-pom maker works.
Really easy & fun for kids!

I love that you can totally personalize these monsters however you want. The kit comes with all the embellishments you need to craft up your monsters: foam tongues, teeth & fangs, little ribbons, googly eyes, & lots of paper punch-outs in the form of shoes, horns, wings, hair accessories, etc. 
(Though not necessasry, I love that I can even grab my own crafty embellishments & other yarn colors if I wanted to!)

Pom-pom monsters with afros, mustaches & mohawks?
The girls & I are SO looking forward to making more monsters over Thanksgiving weekend!

***And guess what?***
Two lucky readers will each receive a book!
