Samantha says, “Many are familiar with the old way of creating string art which required the use of hammer and nails. Neither will be needed when using the String Art II Kit neither. Perfect for both boys and girls ages 10+, inside the kit you’ll find everything you need to create art pieces to treasure for years to come.” Read the rest of her review at As They Grow Up.

Heather says, “…So much easier than the way we did it back in the 70s with wood, velvet, nails and a hammer!

I definitely would recommend this coloring book to others.” Read the rest of her review at Homeschool Happenings.
