American Girl Crafts is launching its first-ever crafting kits inspired by the popular American Girl® historical characters.

The project kits, designed for girls ages 8 to 12, are based on handicrafts popular during the time periods of the historical characters—including the newest released characters: Cecile Rey™ and Marie-Grace Gardner™, who grew up in New Orleans in 1853. The high-quality kits pass on traditions such as weaving, embroidery, painting, paper crafts, and string art, while appealing to girls of today with contemporary colors and styling.

Inspired by content from American Girl’s award-winning books, each craft kit distinctly reflects the character’s spirit and story and includes engaging content that gives girls a glimpse into important times in America’s past. Easy-to-follow instructions are also included to help girls learn new skills with confidence.

Introduced in 1986, American Girl’s historical characters give girls an understanding of American history and foster pride in growing up as a girl in America. The flagship historical line, featuring premium-quality books, dolls, clothes, and accessories, has earned the loyalty of millions of girls and the praise and trust of parents and educators.
